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.

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.

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.

Holistic Psychotherapist, Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
