Anxiety Counselor

Parke Burgess, MA

Psychotherapist

3503 N Cheyenne St, Tacoma, Washington

Anxiety in moderate amounts is necessary for life: It motivates us to attend to problems, get things done, and meet challenges. It helps us grow and develop. But when there is too much it can overwhelm us. We can become frantic or paralyzed. And it just feels horrible! Sometimes we feel like we can't turn it off, get any relief, or just enjoy life. As you explore your experience with me in therapy, you can become more deeply aware of just how anxiety operates within you; you can become really intimate with it. As uncomfortable as this is at first, it has the paradoxical effect of bringing some measure of relief. The anxiety can now move through you and out in a new, healthier way.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2002 65th Ave W, Tacoma, Washington

Anxiety and stress is one of the most common issues children come in for counseling. It can be very difficult for children and their families to manage alone. I am honored to help families, children, and young adults who struggle with anxiety to find joy and peace again. Anxiety in children can manifest itself in health issues, school problems, peer problems, sleep issues, eating issues and even anger. Children feel safe and secure in my office, find tools to help them manage their anxiety, feel empowered instead of afraid and enjoy themselves in the process.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

6922 22nd St. W., Suite C, Tacoma, Washington

I address anxiety by looking at whether this is from a situation or a chronic condition, then help the client to develop coping skills for various stress-inducing situations and learn to self-intervene when anxiety is triggered. Clients learn to calm themselves and relax wherever they are through certain exercises and ways of thinking. We will talk about organizing thoughts and tasks in a way that makes them more doable instead of so overwhelming.

Developing coping mechanisms, boundary setting and utilizing resources are some of the benefits of counseling when handling the stress of today's busy life. When anxiety begins to develop and effect our normal functioning, mindfulness and cognitive approaches can be successful in relieving this heightened emotion and understanding our need for self care.
