Stress & Anxiety

Philip Kolba, MA


Online Therapist / Coach

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

3003 Judson St., Gig Harbor, WA

Anxiety is often a symptom of conflict avoidance and the inability to set boundaries. Do you say "yes" to everyone (but yourself)? That may be one reason you are feeling stressed and anxious. In my work with clients we not only practice breathing and mindfulness exercises but look at family history, temperament and personality traits, and reinforcement that's in place for the anxiety. Gaining insight into why you're anxious can be helpful, but is limited in it's effectiveness to change it. I teach my clients a variety of skills, and make small but effective changes to diet and exercise in a more holistic approach.
