Stress & Anxiety Management
Helping individuals, families and children overcome stress and anxiety is my passion and life’s work. In some cases, it is not so much about overcoming stress and anxiety as it is about learning to manage your reaction to anxious or stressful situations.
Frequent Questions About Stress & Anxiety Managment
What are the symptoms of stress and anxiety?
Anxiety symptoms include obtrusive, obsessive, worried thoughts, confusion and difficulty concentrating, pacing or restlessness, irritability, frustration, and despair. A person with anxiety may feel tense, with uncomfortable physical sensations such as trembling, sweating, a racing heartbeat, nausea, and difficulty breathing. The severe and sudden onset of such symptoms is often indicative of a panic attack. Anxiety can also lead to headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and lightheadedness.
What kind of therapies do you use for Stress & Anxiety Management?
I use a custom treatment plan for every patient, but often choose from Cognitive Behavior therapy, Dialectical Behavior therapy, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness and stress management techniques. I begin by helping you to become aware of signs that you are experiencing stressful symptoms and then help to identify areas in your life that are triggers and stressors of those symptoms.
How often do I need to come to therapy?
Frequency and duration of therapy will depend on the individual. Typically therapy is one session per week, but an individual experiencing more intense symptoms would benefit from 2 or more sessions per week. It may be suggested to join a group for a more well-rounded therapy experience. Most people feel better ever after the first session, and notice significant change within 2 to 3 months of therapy.
