Stress is a buzz word in our culture, but its effects are profound and can take a serious toll on our health, relationships, and overall sense of well-being. Often we try to manage stress and anxiety by trying to keep up with life’s demands – faster, better, more efficient – or by practicing various “relaxation” techniques in an attempt to calm our nerves and create more balance in our lives. But what happens when these attempts don’t work?! In our time together, I will help you discover the real sources of your stress and anxiety, uncover the roots of chronic feelings and habits, and create sustainable holistic change so that you can experience relief and well-being throughout your life.

Maybe you've had to work extra hard at managing your thoughts and feelings, and this leads to those chiding voices in your head repeating that you're not "good enough." When you were younger you were full of ideas and plans, but never quite felt like you fit in. You trudged on toward your goals, sometimes feeling lonely and unsure of yourself, and kept going anyway because you're resilient and perhaps a little stubborn. When the anxiety stealthily crept in and then grew into overwhelming fear, or the mood shifts made your daily schedule chaos at best, your goals were shifted from enjoying a career and family to figuring out how to survive.

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.

If you are a Talented & Gifted, Highly Sensitive and/or Creative person, anxiety and overwhelm may have been a life-long companion. If you grew up in Western culture, chances are good that you often have felt that you don't fit in causing pervasive social and performance anxiety. The work that I do re-educates you about your nature and helps you understand and validate how your proclivities are normal for people in this group. We work together to identify the particular lifestyle changes (environment, relationships, self-care) you can make and tools you can use to keep your nervous system balanced so that instead of withdrawing from life, creativity, and relationships, you can live fully.

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.

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.

Do you struggle with chronic worry or intense fear of specific situations (e.g. social settings, panic attacks, flying, other people’s opinion of you)? Has your anxiety led to physical discomfort, stress, avoidance behaviors, depression? Anxiety can negatively impact all aspects of your life. Fortunately, through developing effective coping strategies and addressing negative thinking and behavior patterns, you can learn to manage your anxiety.

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.

Dealing with anxiety and stress can come in a variety of ways. I do not take a cookie cutter approach, as each person is different. Anxiety and stress has to be identified first and then addressed; this ensures that it does not keep coming back. I deal with the root causes, not just the symptoms. We address diet, sleep and other "controllable" issues first; this gives us the foundation to address the symptoms in a very positive manner.
