Everyone has stress. Sometimes adding one more thing, therapy can really help. As a trained therapist, I can help sort out symptoms that may be related to physical illnesses and prioritize interventions to help reduce the effects of stress. I can help you to create a lifestyle that will protect you from stress and you teach tools to better manage stress.

Anxiety is problably the most common problem seen in therapy. Depression often occurs when anxiety reaches a critical point and the person shuts down. Eating disorders and addictions are ways of self-medicating away anxiety and other challenging emotions. Fortunately anxiety responds well to a combination of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), gestalt therapy, and mindfulness. CBT helps the client to learn to change their thought patterns to both decrease anxiety when it occurs and also to stop it from occurring in the first place. Gestalt and mindfulness both help clients to live in the present moment and to manage their emotions.

When I see clients who are experiencing anxiety and stress, I provide education/information about their anxiety and stress, coping skills, relaxation skills, and problem-solving skills. I use a cognitive behavioral approach which is an evidenced-based treatment for anxiety and stress. Clients who have seen me for anxiety, after reaching their goals, report that they have gained a better understanding of the causes of their stress and anxiety, as well as tool for managing them. Furthermore, they report feeling more empowered, confident, peaceful, and productive.
