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.

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)? Two heads are better than one in coming to a solution!

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.

Anxiety and stress can feel overwhelming and can negatively affect every area of life. Fortunately, counseling is often very effective in overcoming these emotions, as I have witnessed in over 25 years of working with clients. I use EMDR, Inquiry, mindfulness and skill building to help people learn to lessen the grip of anxiety and stress and to experience greater inner peace, awareness, and joy.

Clients who I am privileged to work with, will often express a desire to talk about the stresses they are experiencing in their life. These stresses often are accompanied by anxiety. Today's world is, no doubt, a difficult place to navigate. Stress reduction, for many people, is an imbalance between what they are willing to accept and what they believe can or needs to be changed. I help them identify what part of their worries are about the past and which are about the future. We work together to establish a mindfulness approach to stress reduction which emphasizes the skill sets of consciously being in the present moment, through breathing and awareness of thought/body connection.

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.

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.
