Anxiety and stress seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

If you suffer from anxiety in any form—including panic attacks, insomnia, having a generally nervous predisposition, experiencing a kind of anxious depression, or general lifestyle stress—the good news is that these are very treatable conditions. By teaching you mindfulness and breathing techniques, as well as using other modalities and working directly with the underlying source of anxiety, I'll help you learn to self-regulate when you're feeling anxious, and teach you how to relate to your anxiety differently, allowing you to feel more natural states of ease and well-being.

Anxiety and stress have the ability to build up uncontrollably until we are so overwhelmed that we hardly know what to do with ourselves. With rising challenges and demands at work and at home, anxiety and stress have become a daily part of life for most people. These issues can get so burdensome that we hardly have the capability to see the underpinning nuances of our life experiences that are so connected to these feelings. I can help you see the big picture of your life through dialogue so that you can identify how various parts of yourself are interconnected. This will empower you to make the changes that you want or need in working through these tumultuous feelings.

These days, many of us live with a good deal of anxiety and stress in our daily lives. My way of working with both conditions is to help bring relief to the immediate distressing symptoms (worry, panic, fear, etc) as well as to address and heal their underlying root causes. I help clients access their own self-regulating, inner resources to find a sense of calm in themselves, as well as creating a safe place for them to gently "feel into" and release the emotions behind the anxious tension.

Pick anytime in your life and I bet there was anxiety and stress there. Probably what brings you to seeking therapy now is some sort of anxiety or stress. My belief is that although these things are constants, we can have a different relationship with them. That's what I offer my clients in therapy. The big difference is do I rule over my worries or do they rule over me. I help individuals have the former relationship.

Depression, anxiety, excessive worry, and challenges in relationships are rooted in insufficient emotional attunement in formative years. After providing you practical and effective tools that lower anxiety and reduce stress symptoms in the moment; I focus on really attuning to your experience and helping you experience being accepted. As our relationship develops, I find it normal that you will internalize an internal ability to experience yourself as acceptable. After this happens, you will find that the normal "pain in the ass life experiences" that you find will still be there, but you will have a different sense of self that will allow you to navigate them a deeper sense of self!

To be human is to feel anxious at different point throughout the day. However, when stress and anxiety becomes too high medical attention and/or therapy is needed to regulate your nervous system. I have a CBT and mindfulness based approach to high levels of anxiety. The combination of CBT and mindfulness based practices will allow us to see what is activating your stress and increasing your anxiety as well as, concrete tools you can practice to reduce anxiety in your life.

There is so much anxiety and stress in our world that often, it can seem unavoidable. However, if you are experiencing high stress or anxiety a lot of the time, please don't discount the toll it is taking on your life. It is almost impossible to truly have a happy life you you feel stressed most of the time. I will work with you to identify the situations and patterns in your life that are causing you discomfort, and help you learn ways to reduce your stress as well as set healthy boundaries with people who may be causing you stress. You do not have to live like this. There are many pathways to a more content and fulfilled way of living.

I can teach you specific tools to help with anxiety and stress reduction on the physical level. We may also explore the deeper causes of anxiety, your history, and how to find ground in the midst of uncertainty. It is easy to become anxious when our minds are consumed with thoughts of the past or future speculations. By guiding awareness, I will help you to return to the present moment even as we talk, to feel your body and senses in the here and now. Building your capacity to be aware in the present moment greatly reduces anxiety.

Often when someone is anxious or stressed, they have difficulty focusing on anything else other than their anxiety. Sometimes, a person will go to extremes to try and relieve their anxiety. This can manifest in the form of impulsive decisions, using alcohol or other substances to self-medicate. Most people who have anxiety see it manifest in different areas. For example, a person who is anxious about public speaking, may also be anxious about being in small spaces. We work together to try and figure out the origin and the severity of your anxiety. I examine your thought process, which ultimately affects your behavior. We work together to retrain how you think and manage your anxiety.
