Anxiety & Stress Management
Stress and anxiety are a part of the human experience. Oftentimes, however, these levels of anxiety and stress can get so high that it feels like our ability to function in our regular life is compromised. The demands of careers and school, physical health concerns, family and intimate relationship problems, are a few factors that can often amplify the stress and anxiety that we feel. Many times it is a combination of factors that can make us feel overwhelmed and unbalanced.
In my practice, I help guide clients by providing education about anxiety and learning skills to add to your toolbox that together develop the ability to manage stressors more effectively and find balance in your life. I use Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MCBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) when working with these issues, which involves practicing mindfulness and meditation, increasing self-awareness, and developing self-care practices.
Anxiety symptoms I work with are commonly exhibited as: shortness of breath, stress, social anxiety, performance anxiety, generalized anxiety or worry, panic attacks, separation anxiety, and test-taking anxiety.
