Stress & Anxiety

Jennifer Costanza, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

2121 5th Avenue, Suite 214, San Diego, CA 92101

I have extensive experience in assisting clients suffering from anxiety and stress. Often a trauma, large or small, is undermining the client and his or her self-esteem, which then contributes significantly to anxiety and stress. I often use a specialized treatment for anxiety called EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. This therapy is non-invasive, brief and highly effective. I combine this treatment with other Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Anxiety is one of the worst feelings to be living with, and there is effective treatment available. Please visit my website to watch a movie about EMDR. www.jennifercostanza.com

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Diego, CA 92101

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.

Stress and anxiety, believe it or not, are a normal part of everyday life. However, for some people, they can become bigger issues. If stress and anxiety begin disrupting your daily life, it may indicate a more serious problem. For example, if you are avoiding situations due to unexplainable fears, constantly anxious, or deeply disturbed about a traumatic event weeks, months or years after it happened, it may be time to seek help. You do not have to suffer alone.

Joanne Wendt, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Diego, CA

The feelings of anxiety and overwhelming stress can bring an individual's life to a sudden halt. Intense fears, excessive worry and panic attacks that makes one feel like he/she may die, all interfere with one's quality of life. Dr. Wendt has successfully used a combination of cognitive/behavioral techniques to challenge an individual's invalid, negative thoughts, relaxation training to calm the body's extreme physiological responses to life events and assertiveness training to help individuals master their environment by teaching how to get their needs met in a confident, self-assured manner.

Stress & Anxiety

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

7840 Mission Center Court, Suite 102, San Diego, CA 92108

Anxiety is usually a signal of danger that can be triggered by a relationship or some other type of social situation, or it can originate from internal thoughts and feelings that we are unaccustomed to coping with. In either case, anxiety can lead us to become immobilized and feel helpless to cope with ourselves and/or our social environment. First, I help my patients regain a sense of control over themselves and their lives. Second, I help them understand the roots of their distress so they will be better equipped to deal with anxiety provoking events in the future.

Stress & Anxiety

Roxanne Strauss, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

4025 Camino del Rio South, Suite 300, San Diego, CA 92108

A little anxiety or stress can be good for us. It motivates us to get to our work done, to study for an exam, or to help us recognize we are overwhelmed and need to slow down. When anxiety is problematic, it creates an unhealthy sense of well-being and it interferes with daily living. Because there are different forms of anxiety, and because often anxiety can occur with depression, I work with individuals to assess what kind of anxiety they may be experiencing, and then focus holistically on not only managing the symptoms of anxiety, but also gaining a better awareness of the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of anxiety.

Stress & Anxiety

Mary Obata, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

5100 Marlborough Dr., San Diego, CA 92116

I have special expertise in working with anxiety and stress. With anxiety, it is important to find ways to calm and soothe the nervous system. I offer a wide variety of tools to help train your body to relax. Finding activities to decompress, have fun and nurture yourself are important in order to cope with a stressful environment. There is usually a good reason that the anxiety, nervousness, fear, or worry is there. Anxiety can be a result of PTSD, and I use special trauma therapies such as EMDR, EFT, and AIT that process and release the negative events and associated feelings and beliefs. It is possible to be free of your anxiety and cope better with your stress.

Anxiety is a very common and devastating condition. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I have successfully treated anxiety for over 20 years.

My goal is to have my client's feel more calm and enjoying their life as soon as possible.

Stress & Anxiety

Peter Lambrou, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

12625 High Bluff Dr., Suite 104, San Diego, CA 92130

I see anxiety conditions as unproductive responses to stress. While there are predisposing factors, the catalyst for triggering anxiety, fears, even phobias is stress. I focus on 4 basic and proven factors: 1) Psychoeducation - understanding what's happening in your mind and body that causes anxiety and stress; 2) Relaxation training - providing you with a wide range of ways to relax and de-stress, not just deep breathing, but many; 3) Cognitive (thought) changes - learning how to change unproductive thinking to productive - Stopping the What ifs and a dozen others; 4) Lifestyle/behavioral changes - balancing life is vital - sleep, nutrition (stop caffeine), exercise, and assertiveness.

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.
