Anxiety and stress take a hold on you and never let go, leaving you trapped and frozen. I help my clients to learn all about the magic of mindfulness practice. It's one of the most effective ways to put you in control of your emotions, rather than them controlling you. Imagine how great it would be to have an internal place of peace and serenity that you can use at any time to relax and become grounded. Mindfulness is an ancient practice that is also supported by scientific empirical studies. It's one of the best ways to change your life.

You have this shortness of breath, your heart is racing and your foot won't stop tapping. You can't sit still and you really just want to get up and leave the room. You have hives that are unexplained and this irritating cough that just won't go away. You find yourself yelling at the person in the car in front of you, and you don't understand your kids. Anxiety takes on more forms than we can fully know or understand. Yet when you begin to talk about it, any of it, all of it, your story, your life in general, with someone who is trained to listen and to help see into your life, all of a sudden, the cough lessens, the yelling softens, the hives disappear, and life begins to make more sense.

There are many different types of anxiety and stress. You may be having an adverse reaction to a specific incident or you may be coming to me with a lifelong struggle around generalized anxiety. I work with many clients who have experienced workplace stress and trauma and help them make sense of their situations so they can make informed decisions around a course of action. I help many clients uncover lifelong anxiety that has become so normalized that it may not register as anxiety. Ways of coping with anxiety may be also be causing problems. The goal would be to discover better tools to deal with both the underlying issue and the problems that outdated coping skills may be causing.

Anxiety is a common struggle that we all face from time to time. However, for some, anxiety can become an all consuming, unshakeable force that threatens your ability to live with a sense of security and peace. If you are struggling with what seems to be uncontrollable moments of anxiousness, please hear that there is hope; you can once again, or sometimes for the first time, feel a sense of peace and direction for your life.

New Ground Counseling

In 98004 - Nearby to Issaquah.

Descriptions of anxiety often end up sounding like torture. Probably the best (and worst) description I heard this year was “Anxiety is that feeling of falling toward the ground when tripping… consistently over long stretches of time.” Anxiety amplifies every individual moment and stretches it out in terror, dread, and overstimulation. Anxiety is also the largest and fastest growing category of diagnosis in the DSM. Wherever you are from worrisome thoughts to panic attacks, anxiety is exhausting and unpleasant. How can we reclaim our bodies while knowing God in moments of anxiety? New Ground Counseling is Biblical Counseling in Kirkland, WA.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 98102 - Nearby to Issaquah.

In a world that feels increasingly chaotic, anxiety and stress are common challenges that can feel anywhere from overwhelming to debilitating. I enjoy working with clients as they practice new skills to feel calm. I provide psycho-education about the connection between mind and body, along with practical tools to reclaim areas of agency clients have in their own mental health and wellness. If you feel overwhelmed in your work or at home, counseling can act as a "reset button" to slow down and evaluate what could be different. If you feel fearful or uncertain with racing thoughts or panic attacks, counseling can be the first step in finding relief.

Anxiety is one of the body's natural responses to external and internal situations. Some anxiety is normal, and to be expected when we are encountering new, or fearful situation.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Anxiety and stress are real problems that keep too many from living healthy, balanced lives. Whether it’s sleepless nights or full-blown panic attacks, we will explore the issues together and determine the best course of action. Current stressors such as relationship difficulties and traumatic events can cause anxiety, however, the cause can also be rooted in the past without your awareness of it. Often the help of a trained therapist can make the difference in finding and healing the source.

Anxiety is on the rise - and it pops up in many shapes and forms slowly or suddenly, taking up so much of your mental and emotional space inside that nothing else gets to flourish. However, change is possible! Through a process of coming to know you, your story, the triggers for your anxiety and why it seemingly capsizes your boat leaving you to drown in fatigue and despair, we will find a path forward and you will regain a sense of control and internal strength. In my work I have been honored to help my clients over time to find relief and hope as they regain their lives - or for the first time, to build their life without the crippling experience of anxiety taking over any or all of it.

In today's fast-moving world it's hard not to be stressed out. It can be even harder to determine if the stress and anxiety is "normal" or should be treated. If it's causing you impairments in your daily life, or if you're stressing about your stress, it's worth talking about in therapy. I help client identify what their stress/anxiety looks like and how to better manage it. Stress doesn't have to be bad, in fact it can be channeled in ways that will make you more a more productive person and help you reach your goals... with the added bonus feeling less stressed and more relaxed.
