Does anxiety interfere with making or keeping social connections?
Anxiety is a normal part of life. Yep! However, too much anxiety takes on a life of its own and stops you from having joy and connection with others. Anxiety does not need to affect your self-esteem or keep you felling stuck any longer. Let’s work together to unhook from the grip of anxiety with anxiety therapy. We will understand and work with the physiology in your nervous system. No need to be in fight, flight, or freeze mode when it’s not necessary. Let’s help your system feel more at ease.
What If You Could...
Feel more confident in social situations
Feel more grounded in your body
Experience and enjoy spontaneity
Sleep through the night and wake up calm
Be more present with others and in your life
Stop preparing for the worst case scenario
Unleash from the over-thinking mind
My approach with anxiety therapy is to work on immediate strategies to help you find relief. Anxiety is exhausting and it robs you of happiness! Anxiety keeps you focused on the future by way of “what if” or catastrophic thoughts and constant worry. Some anxiety is normal and necessary but too much is simply that…too much. It takes a toll on your physical and emotional well-being. An integrative mind/body approach is essential to resolve both the current issues and underlying distress. We will uncover what the messages are from the anxiety you experience.
I am trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction as one holistic counseling approach to support a reduction of distressing thoughts, emotions, and physiological discomfort. Mindfulness practices help to expand the capacity to be in the present moment and increase resiliency against life’s stressors. More on MBSR here.
My specialty includes Somatic Experiencing which is a body-oriented approach to renegotiation of trauma, anxiety, and chronic stress. this approach is a gentle, effective way to learn to manage arousal in the nervous system and discharge locked energy.
When we learn how to better regulate our autonomic nervous system, we can reduce many of the symptoms of anxiety, such as: apprehension, irritability, shortness of breath, sweating, headaches or light headedness, restlessness or edginess, chest pain, heartburn, nausea, indigestion, poor concentration, fatigue and several others, which are caused by your body producing too much adrenaline.
