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.

Therapy can help you reduce worries, increase your ability to face fears, and allow you to approach life more optimistically. Dr. Strauss specializes in work related stressors, such as overwork, increasing demands, interpersonal challenges with colleagues and management, and career decisions. Dr. Gilani specializes in health related anxieties and stress.

It's time for you to restore your confidence, sense of well-being and enjoyment of life! If you're looking for a therapist, chances are you're hoping to make some changes in these areas. I will help empower you to learn new ways of dealing with stress, depression, anxiety or other difficult emotions and make room for new ways of coping.

Anxiety, stress and trauma are The Refuge's main areas of focus. Our holistic approach will help you address not only the mental aspects of anxiety and stress (core beliefs, negative thoughts, expectations and demands, etc.), but also their emotional and physical/somatic components. We can help you build resiliency through mindfulness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance skills that help you understand how to read and respond to the non-verbal cues in your body and nervous system. If you have been conditioned to override or ignore your needs in order to caretake for others, we can support you to honour yourself while also attending to your commitments in a balanced way.

When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy, unlike medication, treats more than just the symptoms of the problem. Meristem can help clients uncover the underlying causes of their worries and fears; learn how to relax; look at situations in new, less frightening ways; and develop better coping and problem-solving skills. Our approach gives clients the tools to overcome anxiety and teaches them how to use them. Since anxiety disorders differ considerably, therapy is tailored to our clients' specific symptoms and diagnosis.

Anxiety is at an epidemic level in North America which includes Canada. Lets face it. Its called stress, anxiety, panic and many other names but what we are doing is dressing up fear to a more presentable level. Even stress is not stress, its distress! We need to face our fears. If you control or are accused of being controlling, its probably due to your own fears. Anger often comes out of fear but we are reticent to admit we have fear.

Stress and anxiety is a part of everyone's day to day lives. However, when it becomes difficult to function due to loss of sleep, change in appetite, panic attacks, upset stomach, aches & pains, etc. therapy can be most beneficial. I use various relaxation techniques, deep breathing, mindfulness meditation, as well as talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques (addressing self defeating automatic thinking patterns which effect our mood and behavior). I can teach you how to manage unpleasant symptoms related to stress and anxiety.

It is normal to worry and feel stressed about life's problems and pressures. But when compounded symptoms begin to overwhelm us to the point where we are getting headaches, heart palpitations, a churning stomach, cold sweats, sleepless nights, weight loss, obsessive thoughts, a distressed GI tract - then we need help to break the adrenaline-fear cycle. Anxiety feeds on fear and needs to be confronted, appropriately and safely, with relaxation techniques, new perceptions and constructive thinking patterns. A counsellor can help you do this.

Registered Psychotherapist & Music Therapist Accredited

Milton, Ontario L9T 5M7 | 289-971-0421

My approach to anxiety and stress focuses mainly on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, as it is an empirically-tested, evidence-based technique. It includes recognizing and addressing distorted thinking, grounding techniques, mindfulness, maintaining a journal, and self-care. Alongside CBT, we can explore the roots and possible causes of the anxiety. I have had great successes with clients who came to me with anxiety. One client in particular had social anxiety so severe, she would become physically sick, experience awful gastrointestinal issues, and eventually faint when in a social situation. As a result of therapy, her coping skills improved, until her anxiety all but disappeared.

Stress and to some extent anxiety is an undifferentiated word for an unclassified emotion - as we will learn in using Emotion-Focused Therapy. We will explore the role of the many stress responses, how they play out in helping and hindering life's goals and determine ways to use it adaptively rather than reactively. Often we fail at managing stress because of many limiting beliefs about ourselves or others, or we sense panic and imagined threats that we fear to process, and lack the skills to cope with the overwhelm that is life. We can expand our beliefs, assess panic/threats more realistically and encourage skill building for lasting change.
