Stress is part of this life. When it becomes overwhelming or spins into anxiety we need to find the calm in the storm. How we think, act and relate recursively loop to amp it up or tone it down. Experiencing and practicing ways to soothe ourselves, identify triggers and risk factors can help. Connecting with supportive people who help us to see more of the details in the whole story can bring increased peace.

Just like depression, anxiety is also an emotional symptom. It is present to give you feedback that your attention is needed. Anxiety is somewhat similar but also different than stress. Anxiety often arises from a place of fear, stress sometimes expresses itself as a symptom of anxiety. It can be very confusing where these feelings come from, or you might have a very good idea where it comes from but struggle to know what to do with it all. I often say that anxiety is the sibling of depression. They are interrelated. You can become depressed about how anxious you are and then become anxious that you are still depressed! Don't fear or fret, there are ways to work with this paradox.

The pace of modern life is stressful. Furthermore, the expectations placed upon individuals to "be all they can be" are many times unrealistic and place unnecessary stress on the individual. Further adding to anxiety and stress is the isolation of many; indeed, many lack the interpersonal connections necessary in order to have the psychological support necessary when met with the adversities of life. Counseling offers clients a place to come and receive the interpersonal support that they need to overcome demanding life circumstances, while also addressing the thoughts and cultural expectations that may also be contributing to a client's anxiety and stress.

High levels of stress and anxiety are all too commonly experienced by individuals with modern day pressures. Research shows that after 3-4 weeks of heightened and relentless stress, a person's nervous system can become "stuck" in fight or flight mode. Trouble concentrating, sleeping, relaxing, and enjoying activities can result as well as panic attack as the like. I work with clients to reduce stress and re-establish normal capacities for relaxation and self-regulation. Supportive and empathic connection during times of heightened stress can move a person out of fight or flight and restore a healthy psychological and neurological balance.

My approach to anxiety and stress is to use CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy) CBT focuses on identifying, understanding, and changing thinking and behavior patterns. Depending on the individual benefits are often seen in 12 to 16 weeks. In this type of therapy you will be actively involved in your own recovery, and will have a sense of control, while you learn skills that are useful throughout your life. CBT involves reading, keeping records between appointments, and completing homework assignments in which the treatment procedures are practiced. You will learn skills during therapy sessions, practice repeatedly to see improvement.

There is an almost infinite list of causes for anxiety and stress, probably a few more if you live in a metropolitan area. Maybe your anxiety is decades old from trauma, family of origin, or chemically related. Perhaps it's situational and can be attributed to a recently suffered trauma, is work related, or relationship related. When you are stressed out or anxious, your brain doesn't function optimally. Instead, it functions in crisis mode and impairs your decision making ability and leaves you feeling too drained for the rest of your life. I will help you to regain your control by giving you concrete strategies and tools to manage them.

Do you find yourself fearful when tackling a new task? Are you burnt-out because the stress and pressure on you just seems too much? Do you find yourself saying "yes" when you want to say "no"? I will work with you to examine the roots of these stressful patterns and to find previously discounted or undiscovered strengths you possess. I will help you form stronger and more resilient boundaries so that you will experience a sense of choice and autonomy in dealing with others. I will help you transform anxiety to excitement using powerful tools such as EMDR and the Emotional Freedom Technique, so that you can lead a more harmonious, contented life.

Anxiety and stress are becoming very common place in today's society. The first line of defense is to identify the underlying cause of the stress which leads to an anxious state of mind which then leads to negative physical elements. It is a vicious circle that left untreated will create havoc in every phase of a person's life. If the underlying cause of the stress/anxiety can be easily identified, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can be quite effective. When the underlying issue is elusive or deeply buried in the subconscious, homework that is designed to tease out the cause will be assigned and, then, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy initiated.

Anxiety can manifest in many ways and interfere with one's overall wellness and potential. I work with individuals to identify the source of anxiety to be addressed as well as providing skill-based interventions. Some of the skills are CBT based and include mindfulness meditation and changing negative thinking patterns that contribute to anxiety states. In addition, I find that externalizing the anxiety through expressive arts interventions can help reduce the symptoms and bring healing as well. Find freedom from anxiety and chronic stress by engaging in therapy treatment with me today.
