Anxiety can be a normal part of the stressful, fast paced world we live in. It can help us to stay sharp and on our toes. However, when it escalates to the point where it is overriding your thinking, other emotions or causing disturbing behavior, you may have an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern in Canada. Helping people to "turn down" their anxiety is just one of the goals of therapy.

Stress, anxiety, and panic attacks are all too common in our sometimes overwhelming day to day lives: partners, work, children, family and other stressors are constantly pushing us to the breaking point. We also can experience anxiety that seemingly comes out of nowhere, anxiety that seems irrational such as a fear of getting out of the house, shopping, being around people or strange places. I work with my clients to overcome these fears; not only do I help relieve the symptoms with tried and true CBT methods, but I also like to go a bit deeper and look for the causes of anxiety. When these causes are addressed, the anxiety is more likely to go away for good.

We all suffer from some level of anxiety and stress as life events are unpredictable and the demands of our daily lives sometimes feel overwhelming. Understanding what heightens our anxiety is a first step to managing it. The next step is learning new ways to cope with anxious thoughts--whether they are fleeting or overwhelming. Together we will find what works for you so that you can withstand whatever comes your way, and minimize the thoughts that make you anxious and stressed.

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

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.

Stress, Anxiety, and phobias can leave you feeling immobilized and powerless and unable to cope well. I can help you develop sound strategies to reducing your symptoms, help manage them, and to eradicate some of these from your life. I have successfully done so using the following modalities: Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques, and Energy Therapies, and using strategies that promote neuroplasticity which have helped to change distorted thinking and feeling patterns.

Anxiety can be a pretty consuming, stressful, and overwhelming feeling. In therapy, we will explore the roots of your feelings of anxiety in order to understand where they originated. Additionally, depending on the type of anxiety you are experiencing, whether it be worrying, panic, nervousness, etc., we will: 1. Create a plan for dealing with the anxiety and stress 2. Work on overcoming the anxiety and stress. Interventions that we may use to accomplish these goals are mindfulness, relaxation and breathing, behavioural, cognitive, as well as insight oriented. I will also, collaboratively, draw on other therapeutic approaches to work towards your whole health, well-being, and freedom.

Counsellor & Life Coach

Mindfulness-based therapy is the primary approach I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing stress and anxiety. For stress and anxiety issues, it is important to realize that most stress and anxiety is caused by mental habits and specific thoughts, and addressing those thoughts - and changing them - is a very effective way of learning to manage your anxiety.

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.

People may experience one event or multiple events that can cause them to have an overwhelming feeling of stress and anxiety. A loss of a child, separation/divorce, job loss, aging parents, illness, family conflicts, unresolved issues from the past, still birth, termination of pregnancy, and relationship conflict are just some examples for which people seek extra support.

We all have anxiety in various degrees as it has been a part of the human condition as a protection mechanism since the cave man days. In today's world, anxiety is a very common issue due to lack of work life balance, juggling increasing life demands and our difficulty disconnecting from others due to electronics. I work with clients to determine what are the root causes of their anxiety while providing coping techniques to better manage the anxiety symptoms.

If you suffer from anxiety you are very aware of your physical symptoms of jitters, tension, increased heart rate, and light-headed-ness. In your mind you tend to overestimate danger, underestimate your ability to cope and have catastrophic thoughts. Usually an event that triggered panic brings you for help. While I can provide tools that can help you learn to reduce your anxiety, reflecting on your relationship with yourself and others will help you make personal transformation. For example the fear of being alone after a long term relationship ends, can lead to panic about your future. Addressing what happened in that relationship & past relationship patterns will help you learn your needs
