Stress & Anxiety

Tina Lepage, Psy.D.

Group Psychology & Psychiatry Practice Serving the Triangle for Over 15 Years


In today’s society, stress and anxiety have become very prominent features of daily life. In many ways we have evolved to have much more comfortable lives, but with a feeling of insecurity as to how long it will last because of how unstable it can feel at times. Many individuals avoid this stark reality by a variety of coping mechanisms that in the end do not give them the peace of mind they are looking for. There is a way to accept that life is unpredictable by changing our outlook. Cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices can help individuals change the way they look at their lives by encouraging individuals to see life in a more flexible way. Ultimately the goal is to live f

Anxiety has replaced depression as the most common psychological concern in the U.S. We live in an ever more pressured culture where we are expected to be more productive and efficient than ever. Circumstances in our personal lives and in the world can change so quickly, it can be difficult to keep up, not to mention cope effectively with all that is thrown at us. I have helped clients with a range of anxiety and stress-related issues including social anxiety/shyness, and general anxiety/worry. I can help you to explore issues underlying your anxiety, develop ways to effectively manage stress, and feel calmer and more at peace in your life.

With the growing expectations from work and family, anxiety and stress are an unavoidable part of our daily lives. However, persistent anxiety resulting in sleepless nights, chronic self-doubt, and preoccupation with the future can be paralyzing and exhausting! My clients report that talking to a supportive professional helps them maintain a balanced perspective in the face of stress. They feel empowered by understanding what triggers their anxiety, while having the tools to manage their expectations and cope more effectively. My clients may also learn ways to be assertive in relationships without worrying excessively about pleasing others.

Licensed Professional Counselor

5001 S Miami Blvd. Ste 325, Durham, NC

Anxiety and Stress are the two largest issues that bring clients in to see me. While the response to the stress may be different, this is area that can create great damage to a person's health, occupation, and relationships. Many people do not have the necessary skills to manage the high level of stress they experience in their life. I enjoy teaching and practicing skills with clients to better equip them to thrive. Examples of practices client may learn to utilize include yoga, meditation, self hypnosis, and outdoor activities.

Stress & Anxiety

The Mindly Group, PLLC

Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Counselors, and Marriage & Family Therapists

Within Driving Distance of Durham, NC

Anxiety is a common mental health condition involving discomfort, worry, and fear over a perceived threat. Stress can make us more susceptible to anxiety as it reduces our capacity to regulate our thinking, behavior, and emotions when faced with a challenging situation. Common types of anxiety include social anxiety, generalized anxiety, phobias, OCD, and PTSD. At Mindly, we utilize proven effective treatments to help people overcome difficulties anxiety is causing in their lives. Cognitive behavior therapy in particular is an effective treatment for anxiety and can also help develop more effective ways to manage stress.

Anxiety and stress are infectious and poison a relationship. One often passes on anxiety to one's partner who then escalates the dysfunctional emotion creating an ever intensifying spiral up. A client who cannot handle stress well is often the product of a family in which he or she was thought to be the most vulnerable (or incompetent, or weakest, or most important...) child. This can result in the client's oversensitivity to what others think of him or her. In any event, both stress and anxiety are best extinguished in the context of a relationship.

Stress & Anxiety

Charisse Coleman, MS, LPCA, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor Assoc.

1200 Broad St, Suite 103, Durham, NC

I bring to counseling 30+ years study and practice of mind-body-emotion connections and a wide variety of relaxation techniques. Since not every exercise works for every client, we'll experiment and co-create a practice tailored to each individual. In counseling sessions, presentations, workshops, and retreats, clients learn to release the mental, physical, emotional tensions that impair productivity, creativity, and joyful living. Cultivate the habit of using "micro-moments" and mindfulness to refresh and replenish without adding to an already busy schedule. Discover how you can re-energize by putting more play in your day!
