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.

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.

Our culture fosters stress and, unfortunately, the number of anxiety-ridden clients I see is ever-growing. One of the biggest and foremost components I incorporate into treatment is the need for healthy living habits and self care. When properly tended to, this simple but powerful need can have a massive positive effect on many clients. Depending on the source of anxiety, there are many approaches that I might utilize to address this issue. It is always important to note the need for flexibility and openness as your therapist so that I can customize my approach to best fit your needs.

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.

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.

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.

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.
