Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Upper Nyack

Stress can be felt from feeling pressure at work (or from not working), from always being on the go but still finding not enough time in the day, from feeling more responsibilities than you can handle, from being unable to deal with small stressors when they come up, from finding some areas of your life having significant effects on other areas of your life, or from many other sources. You can get beyond the effects of this by discussing what is going on and finding alternate strategies to deal with situations. Christopher looks forward to heling you on this journey as you see to come to a place of wholeness and peace.

Containing anxiety and stress can often be a long term battle. Be it due to an immediate circumstance that we feel is beyond our control or a life long feeling of unease that becomes debilitating. The real problem in dealing with stress over the long haul is the potential toll that it takes in our lives. It effects our health on many levels as well as the potential to exhaust the energy of our friends and family. Psychotherapy can offer a useful path to better coping and achieving a life that allows us simply to breathe. For in the end learning to breathe on all levels is truly the magic key.

Everyone experiences some anxiety and stress, but it becomes a problem when the anxiety affects you on a daily basis or you worry so much that you feel you can no longer fully enjoy your life. Defining what triggers your anxiety is the first step. Figuring out what causes a rational concern to balloon out of control and overwhelm you is the next. I work with individuals whose moderate stress levels have become more disturbing and uncomfortable, people with generalized anxiety, and those suffering from severe panic attacks.

Most individuals will encounter stress and anxiety throughout different times in life. How you manage stress is of key importance. When stress and anxiety overwhelm us we lose our footing. The Cognitive Behavioral approach to how we manage these stressors has become one of the most effective ways to regain control over our thoughts and behavior. Learning mindfulness techniques and recognizing ineffective thought patterns are tools you will learn to regain that footing. Let's work together so stress and anxiety does not continually become so overwhelming. Life's stressors are manageable wen you employ the right tools.

Anxiety and stress are signals that something is going wrong and you need to make changes. If you feel anxious or stressed ask yourself, " Who or what are you angry at? Or, what are you doing that is painful, without limits and leaves you in a state of Dis-Ease/ Anxious and Stressed? Many times your anxiety can be expressed in panic attacks which are overwhelmed emotions unable to be contained. Psychotherapy will help you to express these pent up emotions and burdens. It will teach you to: be assertive with yourself and others, learn to say "No", relax, set limits, take better care of yourself and learn to use anxiety as your friend and a warning signal that you need to make changes,

I have experience with reducing and eliminating panic attacks, curing phobias, and reducing more generalized anxiety. Anxiety can feel unbearable, and give you the sense that you are in danger. Here also looking at relationships can be very helpful to determine where your anxiety comes from (modeling anxious parents, getting a sense that the world is a dangerous place). and what thoughts and feelings your anxiety may be distracting you from. Getting to know you well can be instrumental in giving you relief from anxiety and reassure you that you are not alone.

While everyone experiences some anxiety and stress, too much can be immobilizing and overwhelming. I help clients better understand their own anxiety as well as develop the tools they need to reduce their anxiety on their own and better manage stressful situations. In addition, I teach clients practical strategies that they can utilize in their day to day life to help them when they are faced with anxiety and stress.

Stress and anxiety are often linked; stress may come from thoughts or events that make you feel frustrated, angry or nervous; in small doses, it sometimes helps you accomplish things. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, unease and worry. The source of anxiety is not always known. Individuals should seek help for stress and anxiety when it is getting in the way of their functioning and/or relationships at home, work, school or in the community. In my work with clients we address the physical aspects of stress and anxiety (racing heart, shortness of breath, sweating, trembling, dizziness), as well as the thoughts, feelings and actions that are sustaining the symptoms.

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.

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.

Anxiety is a general term for states, ways of being, or disorders that cause nervousness, fear, apprehension, and excessive worry. Anxiety affects how we feel, think, and behave, and can manifest real physical symptoms. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling, and can be a normal response to stressful situations. Severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating and seriously impact day-to-day life: it interferes with your relationships and activities, it stops you from being functional—that’s when you know you have crossed the line from normal, productive anxiety into the territory of an anxiety disorder and it's time to get help.
