Anxiety can be such a constant struggle. But . . . you do not have to be alone, isolated, and overwhelmed anymore. You can reenter a place of peace and confidence. Often a trauma, loss, or other tough season leads to anxiety and keeps you feeling unsettled and unsure even if that particular situation has passed. Mindsight/ mindfulness wheels are one area we will develop and make sure you go home with practical comforting tools to deal with anxious moments. Let's talk and find a new rhythm for you in this season.

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 a real mental and physical reaction to the unconscious need for change. Panic and anxiety attacks are physical reflexes in response to psychological, physical and/or environmental conditions. Anxiety and panic are signals that strategies and coping skills are no longer working and change is needed. Overcoming anxiety is not about will power or anything you are doing wrong. It is a emotional and physical experience that often develops into learned coping skill, as maladaptive as it may be. You can understand how this happened and you can learn other way to be, to respond, to cope and more importantly to grow beyond it.

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.

There ARE ways to tame your anxiety and even panic symptoms. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is most commonly used but I also utilize Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to great effect. There's an art and a science to treating feelings of anxiety. Exposure therapy is also often utilized but only if a client feels ready. Living life with excessive worry and tension is horrible. It is very likely that you would benefit from exploring these methodologies. I would love to collaborate with you on what we think might work best for you. Life is too short to feel this way.

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.
