Got Stress? Get Creative! My favorite daily practice is to smile when I feel one of those feelings (stressed, upset, overwhelmed, anxious…) I immediately feel better and am able to respond effectively to what is in front of me (like car going too slow when I’m in a hurry or someone being rude/ unthoughtful/difficult). I learned this during my training over the years in performance and improv… learning to creatively respond to what’s coming at me/being offered by the world with acceptance and openness. And, as a therapist I have seen how creatively responding verses automatically reacting out of anger, fear, stress, frustration, etc can help clients as well as me. In the....

We have come a long way since the days of running from a tiger in the forest...or have we? Though our modern lives are far removed from that ancient experience, our bodies are not! Understanding how the survival system of our minds and body play out in modern day life is key to understanding how to manage stress and anxiety. I work with clients to learn how to develop skills and insights that move them from surviving to thriving and effectively increase their capacity to enjoy life!

Anxiety can rob you of the ability to be at peace and experience joy. It interferes with relationships and your ability to focus. I will help you interrupt those racing thoughts or worries and to deal with them in a calm and structured way so that you are no longer at their mercy. We can also work to uncover the roots of stress or anxiety so that you have insight into what started those feelings and what may be triggering them. When you can understand yourself, you can begin to take care of yourself and control those feelings in new ways. Call me to discuss what kind of anxiety you struggle with and we will talk about what kind of help you would like.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified EMDR Therapist

In 18936 - Nearby to Media.

I see this as the "common cold" of mental health issues that every client struggles with on some level. I help clients look at possible past and current factors that may be creating or maintaining the stress and anxiety. If the anxiety/stress is coming from past or current traumatic experiences, EMDR therapy helps clients re-process them to come to a more adaptive view that aids healing. I teach relaxation, deep breathing, and meditation practices to be used at home to decrease the impact of stress and anxiety on a client's life. Finally, I help clients identify and rid themselves of unhealthy relationships that may be creating or maintaining the anxiety.

Licensed Psychologist

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

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.
