Stress is a serious problem in today's fast paced world. Although your body and mind are designed to handle stress, stress without relief or re-creation has the potential to negatively impact your health, your sense of well-being, your job performance, and your relationships with your family and friends. Sometimes chronic stress also leads to depression, anxiety disorders and other serious psychological conditions. Therapy can often help you deal with the chronic stress in your life. By coming to terms with your life, and examining it consciously, you can change what is possible to change in your life and find unique ways of coping with the sources of stress that cannot be changed. I can help you find what has meaning for you in your life and discover ways that creatively work for you to cope successfully with your unique responsibilities.
Anxiety disorders are the most common of the emotional disorders. Approximately 1 in 9 people suffer from an anxiety disorder. In fact, a recent Gallup Poll study found that 25% of people who work in the U.S. suffer from excessive anxiety or stress-related illnesses. One of the reasons so many people suffer with these kinds of disorders is that they blame themselves for not being able to cope rather than recognizing anxiety as a response to a stressful situation. Rather than seeking help it is easy to suffer in silence and keep difficulties to yourself. Psychotherapy is an avenue of helping yourself out of your current suffering. You can talk openly and find unique options and possible solutions to your anxieties. Anxiety disorders express themselves differently.
