Stress management starts with identifying sources of stress. Your true sources of stress aren’t always obvious, and it’s all too easy to overlook your own stress-inducing thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Together we look at your thought patterns that may keep you stuck in your stress cycle. Anxiety is a natural bodily response to a stressful or dangerous situation. Your body reacts and you experience a racing heart, sweaty palms and shortness of breath. For some people this reaction is more intense and can last hours. Anxiety can be overwhelming and take control of your life. Anxiety may coexist with depression. Call today at 613 287 3799 to learn how you can take control of your stress.

Learning how to manage anxiety & deal with the irrational thoughts or distressing behaviours associated with anxiety is an essential first step to recovery. Processing the deeper emotions & meanings associated with past & present day difficult life situations is also important to build a more secure, resilient self that is capable of facing the challenges of everyday life without becoming overwhelmed.

Struggling with anxiety can rob your ability to function, as well as your enjoyment of life. I find the most effective approach to controlling anxiety to be a multi-dimensional approach. Often medication is very helpful, however other interventions are important to use alongside the medications. Working through your thoughts about the anxiety and how they are adding to the problem, for instance. Having taught relaxation techniques and stress management to people who suffer from chronic pain, I am also well aware of the beneficial effects of learning how to clear your mind through relaxation or meditation.

Residential Addiction Program

Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario K0A 1K0 | 1-613-518-8131

Anxiety disorders commonly coexist with addiction tendencies. Anxiety can severely inhibit a person's life, causing them to feel an irrational amount of panic, fear and other negative emotions in any given circumstance. Severe anxiety may influence a person to avoid leaving their house, or to become paralyzed in situations they interpret as stressful. Many people who struggle with anxiety will try to self medicate with alcohol or drugs, which ultimately makes their symptoms worse. A dual diagnosis of addiction and anxiety requires special treatment considerations; the kind that Valiant Recovery provides.

Can. Cert. Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

Ottawa South, Alta Vista, Ottawa, Ontario K1H 5T7 | 613-733-1422

Anxiety and Stress are both life and living challenges. They are part of the normal obstacles we face in our lifetime, be it in health, in illness, in marriage, in couple and relationship issues, in aging and with our children. The thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with them can often overwhelm and even paralyze us when they occur. In a supportive and empathic environment I help people understand and demystify these feelings and find coping strategies so that they can overcome these crippling experiences in order to live productively again.

Registered Psychotherapist & Clinical Traumatologist

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Anxiety comes from many sources and affects all aspects of our lives.

While anxiety and stress in certain levels can be a positive experience, anxiety and stress that negatively impacts our lives can make us feel trap and helpless. While treatment examines the historic causes/patterns of anxiety, clients are immediately given tools so that they are better equipped to manage their anxiety from the onset of therapy. Once the anxiety is manageable, other areas of the clients past and life are explored that are serving to create, maintain, and aggravate the anxiety. At the end of treatment, clients can expect to experience a renewed sense of calm, peace, and contentment as they begin living the life they want to live.
