Anxiety is a normal emotion that generates a lot of energy even in stressful situations. Uncontrolled anxiety is harmful and often counterproductive. Understanding the specific triggers of your anxiety will keep them from tipping you over the edge. Applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will help you learn different ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to anxiety-producing and stressful situations. Developing the ability to remain in the present will help you learn how to control and limit the negative effects of anxiety in your life to promote your well-being.

Anxiety Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Anxiety Counselor

Elissa Grunblatt, LCSW-R

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Stony Brook

Fear is about the past, anxiety is about what we imagine will happen in the future. Fear and Anxiety mean, by definition, that you are not living in the moment. In order to help you identify what is causing you anxiety, the approach is for you to vent what you are feeling and how it is hindering you. I will ask strategic questions that will make you think, behave differently, and take back your life! I will offer you as many approaches to handle your anxiety as you will need to relinquish the hold it has had over you. Stress occurs when we feel out of control. I will help you manage it and even reduce the instances of stress in your life.

Anxiety Counselor

Joyce Colburn, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Stony Brook

My approach to anxiety and stress begins with listening to learn what stressors are affecting the client's mood and behavior and determining whether other conditions, such as depression, are a factor. I then focus on developing strategies, including cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-oriented psychotherapy to alleviate the symptoms and help clients move past their anxiety and return to functioning normally.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Stony Brook

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Anxiety Counselor

Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez, LPC,NCC,BCC,MS,MSEd

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Within driving distance of Stony Brook

I help people identify the triggers to their anxiety and develop a system to deal with stress before it deals with them! What would your life be like if you weren't continually activated in negative ways by stress? We will work together to make small steps toward change. Clients report less chronic pain when they are managing anxiety in healthy ways. It is possible to reduce anxiety and live life in a more vivid way, even if you situation is not optimal. I can teach you to acknowledge and release these negative thoughts, thus releasing the "trauma" that has built up in your body (stored stress and anxiety)

Anxiety Counselor

Amy Rosenberg, PsyD

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Stony Brook

Every person out there can relate to feeling anxiety or stress at some point in their life. However, it is a different story when that stress or anxiety impedes your ability to function on a day to day basis. For those who struggle in this manner, it is difficult to convey how horrific the experience is. After working in the field and helping people successfully overcome debilitating anxiety, I truly believe that psychotherapy and the right treatment approach can help anyone become the best version of themselves. It has always been a pleasure of mine seeing the transition take place and knowing that treatment has made such a difference for so many who never thought they could do it!

Anxiety Counselor

Zalman Nelson, LMSW

Licensed Professional Therapist

Online Therapist / Coach

So much of our stress has to do with perception: the messages we picked up throughout life from others, parents – the glasses through which we view self and others. There are the events and circumstances, and then there's how we see and interpret them. Let's face them, explore them, take a good look at them, shrink it all down to size, get you feeling capable and confident. And then make changes: removing stressors and adding in meeting your needs.
