Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

In today's world anxiety and stress are extremely prevalent. My initial focus with clients is to help to alleviate these symptoms. With counseling, I provide empathy and compassion in a trusting, honest and nurturing environment. I allow honest expression and provide direct feedback, while teaching skills and doing exercises which provide my clients with the tools to cope and deal with these uncomfortable feelings. These healthy new coping skills help my clients to feel better, improve their relationships and lead more satisfying and fulfilling lives.

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

Is worry or panic disrupting your life? While anxiety is a normal reaction to stress, high levels of sustained stress can be disturbing and can cause distress that interferes with a person's ability to lead a normal life. Many people who suffer from anxiety feel alone and different from others. They may be isolating, socially, experiencing panic, struggling with constant worries, or obsessing over concerns they have little control over. I assist people with anxiety to overcome fears, identify the sources of anxiety, and learn strategies to reduce and manage stress. But most of all, I help them reclaim their peace of mind. Please reach me at 949.370.4726 or at info@southoccounseling.com.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
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.

When stress and anxiety get out of control, life can become agony. We can become irritable, irrational and lack the focus we need to enjoy our life. I help you develop better ways to cope with the stresses in your life and to make use of anxiety in order to improve your day to day situation and life. Not all anxiety is bad. But when it leads to panic, loss of sleep, and physical problems, there needs to be intervention.

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Anxiety, panic, and phobia treatment are OCAC's sweet spot. This is where we do 95% of our work. The other 5% is in related disorders. If you find your thoughts controlling you or find yourself unable to step away from what you know are irrational thoughts, there are solutions. Many patients hear “Just relax" from friends and family, and while momentary exercises like breathing or meditation may help some, they really only subside surface symptoms of underlying cognitions that really need to be addressed. The inability to “just relax” will often exacerbate anxiety further, and there is a reason. If your needs are beyond common stress management, our average treatment is 14 weeks.

Anxiety and stress can rob the joy from life. Too many people struggle needlessly when many struggles can be addressed once-and-for-all in therapy. Therapy also offers many benefits over medication and is considered preferable in many cases as the first choice in treatment. Finding the right person to help you is a lot to do with chemistry. Please call me at (949) 288-3123 if you have any questions at all. I want your therapy journey to be as successful as possible.

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Many clients present with increasing levels of stress and anxiety in their lives. Therapy becomes centered around identifying triggers for anxiety symptoms, recent stressors in their lives, and identifying symptoms. Often times, we find together that anxiety has been in their life for a long time and that old patterns of behavior has accompanied it. We explore some of those patterns to identify the triggers and find new coping skills to practice when stress arrives. I find it helpful to collaborate with the client on setting goals and working at a speed that is comfortable to each client. This provides empowerment and confidence in working toward new ways of handling the stresses of living.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Another therapy which can be used is Systematic Desensitization as for person having problems driving, getting medical procedures and other difficult problems. Persons who have anxiety about taking exams and tests benefit from hypnotherapy. Some insomnia problems also respond well to hypnotherapy.

We live in a world where anxiety and stress run rampant and relaxation and exposure to sounds and visuals that restore and calm us are few. Often our stress comes from our external circumstances, and also from the internal themes we carry within us. Working from both the outside and the inside can help reduce the amount of anxiety and stress we naturally think we must sustain because we have for so long.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

In this fast-paced world of many challenges and pressure to keep up, stay involved and be successful, we often find ourselves worried that our "best" is simply not good enough. Stress and axiety are common reasons many seek counseling and I believe this is the beginning of the solution. Many do not realize they are contributors to their own distress by setting unreasonably high standards and expectations for themselves. Still, others contend with life's pressures and demands which are placed on them by other circumstanes. PTSD is a devastating disorder many face in the wake of war, poverty and the breakdown of their support systems. I am passionate about finding solutions together.

How does anxiety and stress play out in your life? It is a vital aspect of our lives, important at very specific times. Yet when anxiety is the ruler and someone is helpless it becomes a life limiting function. Anxiety might also be an avenue to avoid more intense emotional feelings and thoughts. A valuable goal might be to respect and manage one's anxiety and stress in order to live a more free and productive life.

Tools are specific for your wounds. Stress and anxiety limits our capacity to really connect with life and with love. Anxiety and stress often stems from wounds in the core of the personality that are long ago forgotten. Buried feelings can keep you so wound up and compulsive that you can't relax and feel present. Anxiety can keep you stuck living "in your head" disconnected from the rich, full life you are meant to feel! Don't settle, learn to use the tools to release anxiety and stress!

I’d like to offer you 3 quick tips on managing the stress or anger in your life. Although I’ve written more extensively on this in other publications, this is just a quick, short list of three things you can do to tone things down a notch and improve your life. First, make sure that you are exercising regularly. While you exercise, become aware of what is bothering you. As you focus on your stressors, let the physiological energy generated by your anger or angst be burned off by your body. Let the exertion cleanse you… body, mind and soul. This is what I call Anger Work. Second, use “On-the-Spot Tension Tamers.” These are helpful when you are in the middle of a conflict or stressful meeting....

Anxiety affects your whole being. Physiologically, you may experience rapid heart beat, muscle tension, queasiness, and sweating. Behaviorally, anxiety can sabotage your ability to deal with certain everyday situations. Psychologically, it can cause great apprehension, uneasiness, and fear. In our counseling sessions, we will address all of the way that anxiety is affecting you. I will teach you methods to reduce physical symptoms, eliminate avoidance behaviors, and change the "self talk" that helps to perpetuate the worry. Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we will work towards changing the thought and behavior patterns that add to your distress.
