Most people do not even realize they are stressed because common stress symptoms (i.e. chest pain, muscle tension, headaches, high blood pressure, digestive problems) are seen as symptoms of a physical rather than a mental health concern. In fact, according to the American Institute of Stress, 3 out of 4 doctor's visits are for stress-related concerns. Therefore, treatment requires addressing both the physical and emotional aspects of your life to help reduce and manage stress.
Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns in the US, and one of the most treatable. My goal is to help you gain the knowledge and skills necessary to increase both your confidence and your ability to manage it effectively next time it shows up.
Humans are creatures of habit, yet we live in a world where change is the only constant. Therefore, it only makes sense that change, even positive change, can be difficult and stressful. Talking about whatever transitions you are going through can help you navigate the inherent uncertainties and challenges that all change brings.
Trauma effects 1 in 5 people so there is a good chance that trauma is somehow impacting you, a family member, or your significant other. Trauma-focused therapy helps increase your own understanding and ability to cope with trauma symptoms individually and relationally.
