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; panic attacks; phobias; & obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)/ obsessive compulsive personality disorder are all manifestations of the Anxiety Disorders. Phobias are usually treated by exposure-desensitization techniques, while anxiety & panic disorders respond well to exploration of triggers, identification of maladaptive cognitions & illogical thinking, stress mgmnt, as well as awareness of what occurs or soothes as symptoms abate. Many patients will improve when medication is incorporated into treatment. Distraction, refocusing, & reinforcement techniques may also be introduced. I have occasionally found it helpful to treat OCD d/o's with analogs to self-help addictive treatment.

We have all had moments of anxiety and we remain anxious due to the beliefs we hold about our reality and the thoughts we have about our situation. An individual becomes anxious when they overestimate the negative aspects of their situation and underestimate their ability to cope and function in problem situations. The anxious individual will imagine and create even more negative consequences than are actually present. I guide my clients to a more rational approach of focusing on the task at hand, not engaging in or imagining negative outcomes, and not engaging in or exaggerating possible negative outcomes. We focus together on ways that enable coping, behavioral change and flourishing in that situation.

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.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

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)

Managing anxiety and stress often means learning some new skills, and that's where I come in. I've helped countless people with techniques that help them regain control. Sometimes medication is necessary, but more often anxiety and stress can be greatly reduced simply by using the right techniques. Actually, I've helped people turn their stress or anxiety into learning experiences that leave them feeling more empowered and competent in controlling their lives. If you like, I can help you do the same.

There are six major types of anxiety disorders: post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and phobias. Each type of anxiety has overlapping qualities, but there are distinct symptoms between them as well. Many of my clients come to me suffering from anxiety and, depending upon which type of anxiety my client is experiencing, I customize my treatment to help them find relief. For a therapist, having intimate knowledge about the different types of anxiety is critical in order to provide the best treatment possible.

My approach to treating clients with anxiety and stress is by helping them understand the reason for their anxiety symptoms. Client learns the reason for their anxiety and the best ways to reduce and eliminate their symptoms. For clients the most important thing to know that they are not alone and that other people experience the same types of problems and that this disorder is treatable.

A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.
