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.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

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.

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.

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.

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.
