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 and Stress are a normal part of life- in fact, I view them as vital components. Anxiety is energy, and if used correctly, can help propel you forward. But once the anxiety becomes overwhelming, it becomes a blockage, leaving you feeling completely stuck. In therapy, I will help you learn about your anxiety and how to manage and control it. I will teach you techniques to overcome feelings of extreme anxiety, and how to maximize the energy you feel from your anxiety.

Anxiety can be paralyzing and our thoughts and fears can feel like they are running the show, but it doesn't have to be that way. With coping skills and a sense of security, managing anxious thoughts is possible. With techniques such as thought stopping and reframing, we can begin to argue and win the battle against anxiety. With support and a deeper understanding anxiety can be successfully managed.

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Jennifer McCarron, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified EMDR Therapist

In 18936 - Nearby to Paoli.

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.

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....
