Anxiety comes when the situations of life create negative ideas about people or things. Once these negative thoughts become frequent, they can prevent you from finding joy in life. In therapy, we work through the negativity, exploring its causes, and then find coping strategies to get around them. Once you know where the negative ideas come from, you can face the situations with a fresh outlook. And we act as a team to create it.

Few things are as terrifying as Panic Attacks, which hit fast & hard, and in which you may have the harrowing belief that you are actually 'dying.' Other forms of Anxiety & Stress may linger over time, and be either all-consuming or subtle. They may cause: strained or depleted resources; sapped or jacked-up energy; and mounting senses of pressures or 'overwhelm.' My job is to help you 'transform' your particular (mental, emotional & physical) Anxiety & Stress experiences. I want to help you build resources that will work for you to deal with the kinds of difficulties & discomforts you face, in order to find your way through the 'challenges' to the 'contentment' that lies on the other side.

Anxiety can take on a variety of different forms depending on the individual. Oftentimes people who come into therapy for anxiety because they experience excessive anxiety and worry (apprehensive expectation) over a number of events in their life (work, children, relationships, finances, activities) and the source of the worry can change from day-to-day. People experiencing this kind of anxiety feel they cannot control or lessen the worry and that they are intruded upon by it on an hourly/daily basis. My recent book, Be Calm Proven Techniques to Stop Anxiety Now-offers strategies to reduce anxiety on the spot and I use these strategies in my client work.

Anxiety comes from conflicting emotions, and can end up creating crossed wiring in the brain that is difficult to imagine Getting to the root of anxiety is key, and I do that through brainspotting (https://brainspotting.pro/) and biofield tuning (https://biofieldtuning.com/). Working with the body is essential, so that the person can begin to manage the intense feelings and release the stress.

There are at least four components to reducing anxiety. The first is to learn self-soothing techniques. the second is to become aware of the thoughts and images which are making you anxious and to deliberately choose other thoughts and images. The third is to discover and face what you are most afraid of. Sometimes, when there has been trauma, this fear is something that has already happened and from which you have not recovered. Often it is something out of your control, a fact of life, like death! We need to make peace with these, accept their reality and make the best of what we have. I have some excellent tools from hypnosis and a field of study called NLP to speed your progress.

Anxiety and stress seem to be everyone's typical standard way of life these days...but that doesn't make them any easier to deal with. Though they can certainly be linked, stress and anxiety can be very different, including the way they are treated. From everyday issues to healing from past traumas and losses, anxiety can steal your quality of life. The good news is that anxiety is one area that is particularly receptive to therapy and counseling - much can change in a short period of time with the right intervention and help.

These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

Anxiety and stress go hand in hand. Anxiety is a customary reaction to a stressful situation. But, in some cases it becomes excessive and can cause sufferers to dread everyday situations. Stress is a reality for all of us. But, it does not have to overwhelm us. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to anxiety. Early traumatic experiences can also reset the body's normal fear-processing system so that it is hyper-reactive to stress. The goal would be to; rid the exaggerated worries and negative outcomes in unknown situations. I will counsel you on the many ways to reduce the amount of stress in your life, along with techniques to adjust your reaction to those factors.

Stress and anxiety have always existed. Our brains encode fear easily as a way to protect us from danger. A small amount of angst can help us feel motivated, but when it grows, it can stop us in our tracks. With the rise of technology, many people feel submersed in stress. Constant emails make us feel like work never ends. We text at meals times instead of having real conversations. Consider the stressful impact of 24/7 access to negative news reports, traffic filled commutes, over-schedulled lives, and its easy to see a recipe for anxiety. Learning to be mindful, taking breaks and truly connecting emotionally can create confidence to face fears and even dissolve them.
