Stress & Anxiety

Danience Moreland, MA, LPC

Anxiety is a normal reaction to a potential threat, however we can become anxious about issues that are not life threatening. Anxiety becomes a problem when the symptoms disrupt our daily activities or cause conflicts in our relationships. Anxiety also impacts our physical bodies and these symptoms (headaches, shortness of breath, stomach aches, fatigue, etc…) are often overlooked as something a therapist can help resolve. During therapy you will gain a better understanding about anxiety, what makes you anxious, how your body communicates, and strategies to overcome these emotions.

Anxiety has the power to take over your life if you let it. The never-ending struggle to control and/or avoid your anxiety can paralyze us even as it makes us ever more helpless. I can help you take back your confidence and control. Together, we can identify, challenge, and change thinking errors that are giving your anxiety control over you. With well researched methods and techniques, I have helped patients and clients overcome all sorts of maladies related to anxiety including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Hoarding, Hair Pulling, Social Phobias, and Generalized Anxiety. I have also helped multiple patients gain success over anxiety triggered and driven by traumatic experiences.

Anxiety and stress can be debilitating, affecting all areas of life--school, work and relationships especially. Anxiety and stress are internally self-perpetuating, and can lead to panic attacks or anxiety attacks. Panic and anxiety attacks are scary and can feel like you're dying, making someone feel hopeless and helpless. However, therapy can provide significant relief from anxiety and stress. Through the use of talk therapy, yoga and conscious breathing, art and sand tray therapy, and EMDR; relief is possible. Therapy can provide the relief you're looking for, so you can finally rest peacefully, live life confidently and fearlessly, and finally take a deep breath and breathe.

Let's be honest - there are many experiences and relationships that bring a lot of anxiety and stress into our lives. We can feel uncomfortable in the presence of others, fearful that our vision for life won't unfold how we want it to, or the challenge of making progress and using our time and energy in productive ways. We all struggle with this at different levels, but I believe we can take hope that because of who God is and in a close relationship with Him, we have a future that is incredibly bright. I want to offer clarity on how this is true even when it doesn't feel like it in your life.

Marriage and Family Therapist, Art Therapist

Anxiety is defined as, "the real or perceived threat of death." While there are many minor things that might contribute to your anxiety, the brain and body often experience small issues as catastrophic. In our increasingly complex world, stress and anxiety seem to be the undercurrent of living in a way human beings have never experienced with constant stimulation, pressure and expectations. My observation is that this pressure seems to be happening simultaneously in every age group. Therapy can be an effective route to not only manage stress, but explore the building blocks in a person's mind, and life experience. I am also EMDR trained.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

We are not born with anxiety. Anxiety and stress are a learned way to cope with difficult situations, and they actually do not help the situation, they just make it worse. Medication treats the symptoms, and can be helpful, but it does not heal anything. I want to work with you to help discover what is the reason you react this way and others don't. We can explore how you learned this, and discover if there is indeed a better coping mechanism available to you.

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I use Self Psychology (a branch of psychoanalysis that uses human developmental science, sustained empathy and the therapy relationship itself to understand and bring healing to problems). I work from a warm, empathic standpoint in which I try to enter your shoes and understand your experiences as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that really catalyze psychological growth and healing. Benefits include increased: feelings of vitality and realness, hope, self-esteem, emotion regulation, etc.
