I have several strategies that have proven to be very effective in helping my clients decrease their anxiety. I utilize cognitive therapy to help clients develop a toolbox with as many tools as possible to help them cope with their anxiety. This helps them get through they day, the hour or the minute so that they can successfully complete daily tasks and pursue personal and professional goals. I utilize psychodynamic psychotherapy to help clients become aware of the underlying issues that may be contributing to their anxiety. Once they have gained this insight, they are able to cope with their anxiety better and live their lives with more confidence and joy.

Did you just yell at your partner because you felt overwhelmed and irritable. Are you always feeling like you never reach your goals and are constantly rushing yourself and your family. In our society of never ending pressure and high expectations people are often feeling chronically stressed and anxious. Neurobiology has taught us a great deal of the impact of anxiety on brain and emotional functioning. Couples and individual therapy are an excellent resource for learning how to identify your triggers for anxiety. In my work with couples and individuals we work on learning and implementing understanding and tools to manage and decrease stress and anxiety wherever possible.

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- a condition affecting nearly 20 million Americans. It can impair a person’s ability to function in a work or school environment, social situations or in other areas of life. Symptoms can include: • excessive worry • apprehensive anticipation or avoidance of situations • intrusive and worried thoughts or concerns • restlessness • feeling “on edge” • difficulty concentrating • irritability • sleep disturbance (difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, nightmares, etc.) Anxiety may also cause a number of physical symptoms (muscle tension, excessive sweating, headaches, elevated blood pressure, etc.) Talk therapy and medication have proven to be helpful in treating anxiety.

Isn't it impossible to go through life and not experience anxiety and stress sometimes? A lyric from the song, "Sunny Side of the Street" comes to me in relation to worry and anxiety: "leave your troubles at the doorstep." Of course, this isn't always easy, or even possible. When you're anxious, you experience it as a body sensation, don't you? Coming in for a session will help you listen to your body. Its tension is a message that we will decode together. Sometimes outside stress triggers old reactions, and your body takes a bigger hit than it would if you were only reacting to what's outside. By coming to see me, you will benefit by learning to manage and reduce your anxiety.

In 11361 - Nearby to Tappan.

Good therapy helps uncover the root causes of anxiety, and finds ways to transcend the specific current issues and deals with the underlying sense of worry that seems to arise from nowhere. Anxiety arises due to one's own natural energies being turned back on oneself. I help you see that the anxiety and circular, repeated thinking are due to deeply-held messages. These restrictive messages cause you to feel that authentic self-expression is dangerous, not wanted, and unhealthy. Gradually discovering old traumas and hidden beliefs so they are fully understood and digested, frees you to live in more peace and more fulfilled.

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.

You will learn where your anxiety and stress come from and find creative ways to explore it and heal it. Anxiety can be very complicated. I will help reflect characteristics, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions that you are unable to see in yourself. The more you learn about yourself, the more predictable life becomes and the lower stress we experience on a daily basis. Daily stress equals chronic stress. Chronic stress is very unhealthy for us.

I am a Certified HeartMath Practitioner and can work with you through HRV biofeedback to reduce stress.

Anxiety and stress take a hold on you and never let go, leaving you trapped and frozen. I help my clients to learn all about the magic of mindfulness practice. It's one of the most effective ways to put you in control of your emotions, rather than them controlling you. Imagine how great it would be to have an internal place of peace and serenity that you can use at any time to relax and become grounded. Mindfulness is an ancient practice that is also supported by scientific empirical studies. It's one of the best ways to change your life.

Anxiety Counselor

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

In 07450 - Nearby to Tappan.

Anxiety and stress is often symptomatic of internal conflict that creates the perception of threat. If we liken ourselves to a collection of different personality traits who all serve important functions, then the goal in reducing stress and anxiety is to make a conscious space to integrate, coordinate, and tailor, these sides of ourselves for optimal functioning. When we can learn to be the benevolent, kind, curious, and autonomous facilitator of such a network then we cease to be at the mercy of internalized critics who we continued to depend on in unhealthy ways beyond their capacities to offer effective guidance.

Anxiety is a feeling that we experience at some point in our life. It’s that feeling of intense nervousness and fear that translate into physical symptoms. For some, the experience occurs more frequently with more severity and can go from occurring periodically to an everyday feeling. It can take a toll on your daily life ranging from your health, outlook on life to how you function socially. You will learn where your feelings of anxiety are stemming from and why they are so persistent. You will also become aware of how your physical and emotional symptoms not only connect, but how they trigger one another. Becoming complacent with anxiety shouldn't be a norm. Let's find your happiness.

Anxiety is simply a difficult thing to experience. It ranges from a constant feeling of distress to an acutely overpowering feeling that seems to consume. It is also quite common. Years of working with this issue have made to clear to me that part of mastering anxiety is gaining a working knowledge of why ones gets anxious. Insight is not enough however. When awareness is achieved then one can move to replace old patterns with new ones. It is these new and increasingly adaptable patterns that leads to a successful mastery of anxiety.

If you suffer from anxiety or stress then you know how it impacts upon your life. This is such a large topic. It could include ocd, panic attacks, low self esteem, ...poor relationships to numerous other issues. My approach depends upon who you are and what your issues are. I like to think of myself as being non-judgmental, creating an atmosphere where you are comfortable telling me your story. When that happens we can then identify the issue and choose strategic approaches that will fit with your views and personality so in the end you can have a life without the anxiety and stress that you are feeling presently.
