Successfully treating anxiety and stress is often illusive. Don't forget - stress and anxiety are not the same thing - kind of like thunder and lightening not being the same thing. It is possible to feel stress without feeling anxious. But, when anxiety flares up, stress is always waiting in the wings. We know that anxiety is a fear-based emotion. Genetics gone awry is to blame. Getting relief from stress is often easier than getting relief from anxiety. Stress can be managed to some extent, but anxiety is innate. We are born with it. Not great news I'm afraid, but there are therapies that can help overly-anxious people find relief. Medication is often the treatment of choice.

I will show you how you make yourself anxious about the things you find threatening and challenging. Anxiety and stress are largely self-created by the beliefs we tacitly hold about adversity or potential adversity. I will show you your self-defeating beliefs and teach you how to think so you feel sensible concern and do what you can do to avoid danger and threats. I will show you how to philosophically accept what cannot be avoided and thereby minimize the stress you feel about what cannot be changed or avoided. Using the power of your own ability to think in a self-helping way I will help you to change your feelings of anxiety.

Anxiety is characterized by a state of fear. That fear might be a fear of judgement from others or fear that you will "lose control" in a particular situation or a fear that "something bad" will happen if you don't do X. When people feel anxious, the fight/flight/freeze response is activated in the brain. This is a primal instinct that served us well as cave people, but does not work in the modern world. Anxiety is crippling. When people feel anxious their brains are on alert 24/7/365. I teach clients how to manage anxiety so that the anxiety does not control you.

When we feel a loss of control, it can be scary and disabling. In my practice, I incorporate traditional talk therapy with mindfulness based therapy and yoga practices. Yoga and meditative exercises can help a person regain a sense of control over their thoughts, emotions, and physical body. Being centered within can help significantly reduce anxiety and symptoms created by stress. Take some time for self care and relaxation. I can help you feel more in control of your daily life, rather than feeling as though anxiety has taken control over you.

WalkinTalkinTherapy can be a crucial component in the fight against anxiety and stress. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, unease, and worry. The source of these symptoms is not always known. Stress can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. You may have a harder time focusing, feel tired most of the time, or lose your temper more often. Stress may also cause sexual problems. It can also cause problems with falling or staying asleep and nightmares. While scientists have long known that exercise can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows it can have a deeper and more lasting effect when combined with talk therapy.

We all deal with stress an anxiety on some level. They are often the result of an over-active mind. Often when we are feeling anxiety we are caught up in the future and find it difficult to be in the present moment. As a yoga teacher, I am a huge advocate of mindfulness practices and work with my clients to develop their own mindfulness and self care practices that work best for them. I understand that yoga and meditation is not for everyone so I strive to help my clients cultivate practices that work for them. I also work with my clients to create lives that are filled with meaning and fulfillment, which research supports helps us deal with stress and anxiety more effectively.

We all have some level of stress & anxiety that is often experienced as fear & worry. For some, however, the anxiety can become overwhelming. This may involve a specific stressor or an increase in life stressors, a phobia, generalized anxiety or even panic symptoms. It is important to identify what might be triggering the anxiety as well as any predisposing causes. I work with individuals to explore the roots of negative thoughts & beliefs & then begin the process of altering them. I also assist in sorting through ineffective coping strategies & replacing them with new & more helpful strategies. This process helps provide relief by addressing both the anxiety symptoms & the underlying cause.
