Discover How You Can Overcome Anxiety and Stress and Create a Life You Truly Love

If you’re having difficulties sleeping, concentrating, or making decisions, often feel fidgety, irritable, preoccupied, or overwhelmed, or it feels like your relationships are slipping away, and you feel guilty and blame yourself for your problems, then you’re likely struggling with anxiety and stress … and you’re far from alone!

Of course, we all experience stress and anxiety from time to time …

Routine situations, such as speaking in public, first dates, meeting tight deadlines, and even being stuck in rush hour traffic can lead to anxiety and stress.

These mild forms of anxiety and stress are normal and can even be beneficial, as they heighten our sense of awareness in new, unusual, or potentially threatening situations.

But anxiety and stress can be “sneaky” …

One day you turn around and realize that what you thought were momentary, isolated instances of anxiety and stress are actually much worse.

You realize that what felt like occasional anxiety you could deal with has become daily anxiety and stress that’s slowly sucking all of the joy out of your life.

If that’s the case – if you’ve been experiencing anxiety and stress for a long time, or your anxiety is causing relationship problems with your partner, children, co-workers, or other family members, or you can’t seem to let go of any kind of distress, no matter how horrible it feels – then you owe it to yourself to get some professional help.

And help is available!

Why Anxiety Counseling and Anxiety Therapy?

Unfortunately, most people don’t realize they’re suffering from ongoing, severe, or excessive anxiety or stress until the symptoms become overwhelming.

To make matters worse, many people who suffer from anxiety blame themselves and attempt to conceal their problems and deal with them in isolation or, even worse, “stuff their feelings” in an attempt to ignore their anxiety out of existence.

But self-recriminations, withdrawing from the people we love, or denying that we’re struggling only leads to more anxiety and stress.

So what can you do?

You’ve likely tried just about anything and everything you can think of – taking long walks, exercise, meditation, even talking with friends and family members – yet nothing seems to help, or at least doesn’t help for long.

It seems no one, not even you, understands what you’re going through, let alone why you’re struggling the way you are.

However, there ARE underlying reasons for your anxiety and stress. And discovering what they are, working through them, and creating true healing and growth is what professional counseling and psychotherapy are all about!

Research has consistently shown anxiety counseling and psychotherapy can help you not only cope with the symptoms of anxiety and stress and regain a sense of balance and control, but also address the underlying causes of your anxiety, so you can move forward in life with confidence and optimism.

How?

Unlike those long walks, exercise, or even anti-anxiety medications that only treat anxiety’s symptoms, counseling and anxiety therapy can help you recognize, understand, and resolve the underlying triggers of your anxiety, change how you respond to anxiety-provoking situations, and reframe your thoughts and beliefs so you can look at situations in new ways.

And lest you think counseling and therapy are all about you sitting in a chair and talking about your problems while I listen, your work with me will be a collaborative and interactive process.

I draw on a wide variety of therapeutic modalities, including incorporating Somatic Experiencing, mindfulness-based therapy, and other healing techniques in my work with clients.

In other words, I don’t provide “cookie-cutter” therapy.

We’ll use whatever techniques are most helpful for keeping you grounded and centered as you do the work necessary to create true healing and growth.

Are Anxiety Counseling and Anxiety Therapy Right for You?

While there are no “silver bullets” or “quick fixes” for overcoming severe anxiety and stress, and effective anxiety counseling and anxiety therapy will require your time, commitment, and effort, many anxiety counseling and therapy treatments can be relatively brief.

Only you can decide whether or not you’re ready to get professional help.

However, it’s worth remembering that, while severe anxiety and recurring stress are debilitating enough in their own right, if left untreated, they can also easily lead to other emotional, behavioral, relationship, and physical health issues.

So ask yourself …

How long have you been struggling with anxiety and stress?

What will your relationships and life look like if you don’t get help?

If you’re willing to take the journey, explore who you are, better understand yourself and what’s brought you to this point, and do the work to figure out where you want to be and get there, anxiety counseling and anxiety therapy can help you put an end to the seemingly endless worries and self-recriminations, and create the rewarding, joyous relationships and life you desire, deserve, and truly love.

I encourage you to contact me today, schedule an initial consultation, ask any questions you have, and find out how I can help. You truly have little, if anything, to lose, and a whole lifetime to gain. I look forward to speaking with you.
