Anxiety, at one time or another, is a fact of life. Many people experience feelings of anxiousness when facing stressful situations or important decisions. An Anxiety disorder, however, is a serious mental illness and can interrupt a person's ability to lead a normal life. For people with anxiety disorders, irrational worry and fear are overpowering and relentless. There are several different anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social phobia. The symptoms for these disorders vary, but all generally include some type of extreme, irrational fear and feelings of dread. Many people with an anxiety disorders also have physical symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, tension headaches, nausea, or muscle weakness. Anxiety disorders (characterized by at least six months of symptoms) are fairly common, affecting about 18% of the population. A mental health professional can be helpful in dealing with normal feelings of anxiety as well as specific anxiety disorders.

Having suffered for a long time with anxiety/panic attacks, I know very well how debilitating it can be; whether it shows up as a panic attack or just a general ongoing feeling of anxiety. Using trance and guided meditation, we can restructure and actually remove these very old thought patterns which have been lodged into place for so long.

Anxiety can feel overwhelming and take away your ability to experience joy and freedom. Many times anxiety is a result of trauma (ongoing or specific event) that you\'ve survived, but your body remains stuck in feeling threatened. Anxiety is not just in your head- it\'s important to be able to build a sense of safety in your body, and we can do this together at a pace you are comfortable with.
Many of the clients I see struggle with some form of anxiety.

A little anxiety keeps us safe; too much is crippling. What if you believed you could handle anything that came your way? How would that change the way you live your life?

We all have anxiety to some extent and it's a good thing because it often keeps us safe. The trouble is when our system of assessment is off and we find ourselves responding to threats that may not be there or not to the extent we think they are.

I treat anxiety on a number of levels. I often find that anxiety and anxious rumination comes from an underlying traumatic wound, or attachment wound (a rupture in family relationships during childhood). I offer immediate techniques to manage the symptoms of anxiety, while also working to shift their causes: fundamental patterns of self-concept, self-talk, self-sabotaging behaviors.
Anxiety is often associated with stress, which may infact be more closely associated with anticipation, fear, and cognitions, that is beliefs and notions that leads to believe the interpretations we have about ourselves, others and the situations we may find ourselves in. Unraveling what is real and what is not is our gaol to regain balance.
The integrative Mind-Body approach I use allows us to go into your mind to the root of what is causing you anxiety. We will notice and examine the thoughts, images, beliefs, physical sensations, etc that all create the feeling of anxiety in your system, and we will address these using mind-body modalities in order to bring relief to your system.
Anxiety is nearly ubiquitous in navigating the complexities of everyday life. A small degree of anxiety can be motivating while too much anxiety is incapacitating.

The body let's us know how it's doing through feelings of anxiety, fear, and panic. By learning how to attend to and care for these feelings, we can re-pattern how we respond to the circumstances of our life, which are often unpredictable. Empathy and body attunement are the tools we use here.
