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.

The key to understanding anxiety and stress, is to recognize that they typically caused by self-defeating, habitual ways of perceiving and reacting to situations. Some forms of anxiety can be considered diagnosable problems such as generalized anxiety, phobias, and panic attacks and may require the help of a professional to effectively address them. However, for everyday forms of stress the answer lies in realizing they are not the enemy, but only survival reactions which we can learn to manage skillfully through methods such as relaxation exercises, time management, and cognitive-behavioral approaches you can learn from books, videos and counselors who specialize in this area.

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....

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.

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.
