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.

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.

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.

I have found that anxiety is one of the most treatable forms of mental distress! Treatment is not easy, but it can help you manage your stressors. Life is full of stress, but it does not have to paralyze you. You have choices, even in the most debilitating of circumstances. How can I support you in the midst of your challenging situation(s)?
