Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Anxiety and stress are a normal part of life but unmanaged anxiety and stress can be devastating to a person's daily life. I work from a cognitve behavioral perspective when treating anxiety and stress. I help the client look at the messages they give themselves about their daily stressors. When we discover exactly how a person's self-talk influences their behavior and response to their stress and anxiety we can begin to change those messages which in turn changes the responses and reduces the anxiety.

A minimal amount of anxiety and stress in specific situations can be the motivation needed to complete tasks, power through exams and overcome the impossible. Learn how to calm and relax your mind by using visual techniques such as creating a safe place you can visit during times of intense stress and discover healthy and effective ways in which you can help relieve your mind and body of undesired anxiety and stress.

Curtis Miller, MFT, Psy.D., D. Min., M.A., M.Div.

Within Driving Distance of Pico Rivera, CA

It is a given! The issue is not that we have anxiety, rather it is not being able to make sense out of what is making us anxious. Anxiety is a warning signal that something is wrong and we need to be alert to what we need to take care of ourselves. Anxiety changes when we can be in dialogue with someone who can help us understand what the surrounded issues are that need our attention. Being alone in our anxiety keeps us trapped. Being connected in our fear changes it. This is what good therapy does. It provides a space to no longer be alone in your anxious feelings. Being responded adequately in your fear allows confidence and peace to return.

Anxiety and stress, commonly misunderstood feelings, and difficult to manage as well. The good side of anxiety and stress, is that in healthy amounts they assist in motivating you to plan and implement goals. In unhealthy amounts, typically high they serve to overwhelm, distract and even take a toll on your physical health, due to disrupting natural body rhythms (ie. sleep, eating,). This has the unfortunate affect of increasing anxiety and stress more and making living your life evermore challenging. I can help you identify your stress/anxiety triggers, give you feedback about your own anxiety triggers and help you adjust your responses in a more healthy manner.

Robert Puff, M.A., M.Div., Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Pico Rivera, CA

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....

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

My approach to the treatment of anxiety is to use the most effective intervention strategies possible. My treatment for anxiety (including panic disorder and OCD) utilizes exposure therapy, which works by helping a person confront a specific fear or memory while in a safe and supportive environment. The main goals of exposure therapy are to help my clients learn that by stopping the avoidance of what they fear, they actually become MORE comfortable and can reduce their anxiety to a substantial degree - all of which opens doors of hope and increases the potential to reach your desired goals with an improved quality of life.

Stress is a part of life. We will never be fully rid of it. How we deal with it is the key. Are you constantly thinking of something you did in the past? Or often worrying about the future? When we learn to take care of ourselves in the present we can help lessen the anxiety. No one knows what the future will bring, so the worry about something that hasn't happened is wasted energy. Practice mindfulness while staying present. Learning to see the unusual cloud formations rather than being stuck in your head can be a learn skill. Anxiety does not have to control your life.

Individuals experience and process stress and anxiety differently. When the stress hormone, Cortisol, spikes too high, it can reek havoc on the mind and body. Since each person's stress and anxiety manifests differently, each person's anxiety symptoms respond differently to various treatment methods. Anxiety is as diverse as one's DNA. Therefore, I take into account one's family history, environmental influences, past experiences, basic temperaments, hereditary features, etc. to help customize your coping tools for anxiety.

Talking with a therapist will help you uncover what is going on in your life now or where you might have unresolved anger about...or what you might fear. Talking through these issues can help difuse your anxiety, and a therapist can be beneficial in offering tools, skills, or simply a new way of thinking about a situaltion. Oftentimes, too, anxiety comes from a negative belief that is sometimes not accurate. You may gain insight and awareness as you challenge some of your belief systems which might be in your way. Looking at the stressors in your life with a therapist will reveal how your liife may by out of balance.

When anxiety and stress become overwhelming, it has the power to keep you from feeling like yourself. It takes away from your ability to be present in your day to day experiences, makes it difficult to enjoy your relationships, and takes your energy and time away from important things. You may not have control over stressful situations, but you can be empowered to handle them constructively and not be debilitated by anxiety. In the safety of therapy, we can explore and understand your stressors, identify constructive coping tools for you to draw on, and process through and release the burden of anxiety so that you can be free to enjoy the life you deserve.

Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed. I provide a particular kind of approach to anxiety that may not only help you to lower your anxiety threshold (leading to less anxiety and fewer panic attacks), but to identify the myriad feelings that make up your particular type of anxiety. Then, as we figure them out, understand them, and find new ways of expression, it may naturally help lower your anxiety level. We might also use certain stress management techniques that I developed when I taught stress management courses for several years.

It can be hard for people who experience various challenges to have the confidence or desire to approach a professional. Not only we are generally too embarrassed to ask for help in unraveling our feelings, healthy functional people suffer the double stigma. Since they are used to being highly functional in most, if not all aspects of their lives, when they face unfamiliar emotional challenges it can be hard to accept or understand it. In many occasions it is not easy to say: hey, I am dealing with something that I don’t have the tools to resolve! I truly care about them and want the best possible results.

The benefits of therapy for people who suffer from anxiety are the reduction of symptoms, and the development of greater well-being. Anxiety is a kind of friction among the moving parts of the self, an internal conflict that is distracting, depleting, and highly unpleasant. It is closely linked to stress, to boredom, and to fear of sadness. Rather than struggling, we can collaborate to turn toward the source of the anxiety and try to resolve it at the roots.

Stress and anxiety play a big role in our lives. We live in an information heavy world, which along with the daily grind of life, can make people feel overwhelmed and anxious. One of the problems is that it isn’t just felt by the person suffering, but by all those around the person as well. That’s why it’s crucial to learn techniques to alleviate your stress. I believe that in order to really work through your anxiety, you need to figure out where it’s coming from and learn your triggers.

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

Stress or anxiety don’t always get in the way, but sometimes they do. Learn to identify the sources, recognize how they stop you, and change the impact they have on you and your life. Learn how old patterns shape your self-image, self-esteem, and expectations, and discover new ways of dealing with that. Fear doesn’t have to stop you from having what you want in life. And, sometimes it’s a valuable asset, like knowing which is the lion and which is the lamb. Psychotherapy with me helps you to sort out when to listen to the fears and when they no longer apply. You’ll also learn coping strategies that can help when you’re caught up in the fear. Your fears don’t have to control you.

Anxiety is a powerful force that can take hold of your life and leave you feeling out of control. Loss of control and the associated uncertainty can be terribly distressing. When anxiety becomes overwhelming, we will work together to discover ways to keep it from taking over. We will leverage your strengths and incorporate mindfulness techniques, thus diminishing the anxiety and returning control to you.

As people, we all deal with anxiety, and I remind clients that it’s a normal part of life. However, when it becomes a daily, pervasive problem, we can feel overwhelmed by its power over us. My approach treats more just the symptoms of the problem, and helps uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears. I will offer you the tools to overcome anxiety and teach you how to use them, teaching you how to relax, transform unhelpful/negative thoughts into more realistic/constructive ones, and offer mindfulness meditation techniques when appropriate.

I go by the motto “the more you scare yourself, the more you grow.” This is why I encourage every my clients to scare themselves daily and sit with the fear that comes up. I call this the “Leap of Faith.” You see, the more you can experience the vulnerability of fear, the more likely the chance that you will not experience the anxiety related to it down the road. Each time you face your fears, you gain more CONFIDENCE, and this confidence/faith is the key to everything.

Is anxiety, panic, or stress overload taking over your life? Is it keeping you from things you need to do or want to do? It is very common to try to avoid anxiety or panic, or lower the stress, by avoiding situations that trigger it. By avoiding anxiety triggers, your world starts becoming smaller.

I offer effective, drug free tools and strategies, mostly based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We would work together to create a plan that works for you. Call me today to learn more.
