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.

In today's busy world, many people are overwhelmed, struggling with stress and anxiety. Children, teens and adults, can all struggle with fears, feeling anxious, or panic attacks - basically a fear reaction that is out of proportion with the situation. My approach involves understanding what has driven the stress and/or anxiety...sometimes anxiety is related to a loss, sometimes it is fallout from a trauma, sometimes it has been a lifelong, unwelcome, companion. Using CBT, mindfulness and other stress-reduction techniques, clients can find a way to feel more in control of their lives, and experience relief for symptoms of anxiety and stress, whatever the cause.

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.

Research has shown that if left untreated, children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse. This is why I believe that when working with children/youth and adults who are struggling with anxiety and stress, it is very important to teach coping skills. We cannot always control what happens to us, but by learning how to cope with stress and anxiety, we can help children and youth to respond in a productive manner.

Anxiety often hits us unexpectedly. We might manage stress well enough until at some point the body's resources seem to get diminished and the body starts to talk back. Some symptoms of Anxiety & Stress might be: difficulty breathing, sleeping and/or eating; restless mind; negative thoughts and tumultuous emotions. The work I find most helpful to improve your skills for dealing with these fear-based emotions; includes cultivating a better relationship with your body and your emotions. As you become more aware of your actual limitations and pay greater attention to your needs, your body can achieve a more balanced state.

All of these models are helpful in treating anxiety but I get to know you first and choose a method of working that is most helpful for you as a unique individual.

Stress and anxiety are one of the most common issues that people struggle with. It can feel overwhelming to be alone with all of those feelings. I can help examine what is contributing to these feelings, and whether there are underlying issues that are bothering you. Often anxiety occurs when our life and our values and goals are not in line. I can help in examining lifestyle choices that may need changing to help lower anxiety symptoms. I also help people examine how their style of thinking contributes feelings of stress and anxiety.

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.

Feeling stressed and anxious are normal reactions to too much pressure, lack of control and not knowing how to cope with a situation. Sometimes emotions are overwhelming when challenges persist, and if they seem to block you from living a positive and satisfying life, you might wish to seek help. Sometimes we think ourselves into stress and anxiety by worrying about what MIGHT happen, but stress and anxiety can also be triggered by events, such as trauma or certain medications. Please allow me to help you understand your stress situation and find manageable solutions to reduce your sensation of pressure and anxiety. 905-842-3626
