Anxiety

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.

Part of the Existential philosophy that guides my practice is the acceptance that Anxiety is a part of being human.

When this anxiety rises to a distressing level, therapy helps to recalibrate, and transform that energy into fuel for a self-directed life.

Anxiety is an expression of a nervous system that expects something bad to happen. For our ancestors, this might have come up briefly when confronted by a predator, and then resolve when they escaped (or didn't). Today, we live with lots of sources of abstract threat (what do my peers think of me? am I doing well enough at work/school?) and more immediate threat (is it safe to go outside my home?). Without tools to help the nervous system calm back down, all these stressors add up quick.

Anxiety is our body's way of alerting us that something needs our attention--perhaps we are not living in accordance with our deepest selves, we cannot reconcile our life with what we truly want, or that we hold onto the impact of living with hypervigilence and disconnection.

Anxiety is the mind's way of trying to achieve peace and safety using thoughts and intellect to exert control, find solutions, and fix what's "wrong." The problem with this is that very few things require solutions, or are actually "wrong" or truly within our control. Peace and safety, though, are innate human needs, so the journey is learning to step away from thinking and into a space of courageously being with feelings of fear and unrest, building an inner strength and wisdom that we trust.

Clinical Psychologist

Anxiety, panic, and phobias can be suffocating. You may feel tense, preoccupied with worry, or experience an elevated heart rate, upset stomach, chronic pain, or headaches. These issues arise when our nervous system goes on overdrive and our body doesn’t distinguish between actual threats and imagined threats. I use evidence-based practices to help you break free from the control of anxiety.

Anxiety is often a result of a lack of personal 'integration.' Each of us is made up of many parts, emotions and thoughts, and these can become overwhelming, confusing, and conflicting. In therapy we work to make sense of the roots of your anxiety, as you learn to tolerate, manage, and alleviate some of that discomfort through finding a real sense of wholeness and clarity within your true self.

Let's be curious about the anxiety, let's hear what it is trying to protect you from, and let's free it to live a more fulfilling life. Parts work, EMDR and Neurofeedback all provide a way for the nervous system to get out of fight/flight/freeze mode so that you can live from a calm and balanced body.

Anxiety makes people feel nervous, frightened, worried, or on edge. It can cause panic attacks, and often leads people to avoid situations.
