Often we are bombarded by stressful life circumstances that can steal our peace. Many of us have come through very painful and challenging experiences that have shaken our ability to create safety. All of which leave us vulnerable to anxiety and we can easily find ourselves in a constant state of panic. In our approach, we support you to make sense of these feelings and get them to work for you rather than against you. As we make sense of our fears and learn ways to create internal safety, we can create a peace that comes from the inside out. Like the quote says " I am not afraid of the storms, for I know how to sail my ship." Our work is to strengthen your ability to sail the storms.

When individuals find themselves feeling overwhelmed they may struggle in determining if they are dealing with stress vs. having issues related to anxiety. Stress is the way your body reacts to a trigger connected to a positive or negative experience that is short-term. Once experience has passed stress often also passes. Anxiety, however lingers in a persons life much longer, even after the stressful situations pass, or been addressed. If left untreated anxiety results in impairments in social, professional and relational areas of a persons life.

Anxiety and stress are the givens of modern living. Unless we have been formally trained in handling them we will be in trouble physically and emotionally. 70% of all medical problems are stress produced or aggrevated. Assessment will determine your specific triggers. A daily log sheet will track what is actually happening. Then practical solutions will be prioritized, taught, practiced and evaluated. Weekly practical assignments are part of the protocol.Time managemnt, sleep control and relaxation techniques will be included in our therapy. I have 20 years experience in treating stress and anxiety and am currently a seminar speaker on these issues. We can help .

Everyone experiences stress, and stress can be positive motivation to get things done. But when stress escalates it can be experienced as anxiety. Anxiety can arise when we lose touch with our feelings. In an anxious state, our bodies produce cortisol, leaving us in a fight or flight state. I try to help people understand the nature of their stresses and regulate stress through meditative, mindful or breathing practices. We explore the internal experiences – the feelings and emotions that escalate stress into anxiety. Learning to address these feelings gives us tools to deal effectively with challenging feelings, thereby developing a healthy sense of inner awareness and control.

Anxiety and stress, natural responses that our bodies provide us with to keep us alive. What happens when these responses become debilitating? Working through anxiety and stress, though can seem very challenging, can be done. We need to address symptoms, challenge the ways of coping, and work to eliminate and alleviate so you can move forward and do the things you love. CBT has been proven to be effective for anxiety management. I use CBT with other integrated therapies to transform your ways of coping. Let's work together today!

Working with people who experience anxiety is something that I find very fulfilling. Anxiety can lead people to feel like an inferior version of themselves, affecting social interactions, familial responsibilities, work performance, and confidence in general. Stress is something that we need in our lives, to a certain degree. Without it, we would not have the motivation to do what needs to be done; excessive amounts of stress, however, can lead us to flight, fight, or freeze. Recognizing how stress affects us, and how to manage it in a way that promotes well-being is something that can be learned in therapy.

Stress and anxiety when present within healthy limits can stimulate, motivate, challenge, warn and activate our bodies to react accordingly to the situation. When it's too much, too intense and for too long, stress and anxiety lead to poor functioning, impairment and exhaustion resulting in stress and anxiety overload, contributing heavily to triggering anxiety disorders. In my therapy, I use therapeutic approaches and techniques that help reduce stress and anxiety and enhance the quality of your life and build your emotional resilience. You develop skills to minimize distress and maximize efficacy in many areas of your living and live life in a happier and healthier manner

Anxiety and stress is a part of the human experience, but when anxiety and stress become constant and impedes the ability to cope and also interrupt daily life then it is an indicator that the individual may be suffering from a mental disorder. Subsequently, anxiety and stress is experienced by everyone at any point in time. For instance, before attending an interview, writing an exam or even having recurring thoughts about childhood experiences. Cognitive behavioural therapy is most efficient in aiding those with anxiety and stress allowing them to confronting their fears and then altering the perspective on the stimuli. Cognitive behavioral therapy also helps by providing the individual
