Anxiety

Feeling a certain level of anxiety over big stressors or certain life events is totally normal. However, if you find that your fear or worry does not go away and, in fact, gets worse over time, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling and often passes quickly, while severe anxiety can seriously affect your day-to-day life. If you are finding your anxiety unmanageable, can’t identify the cause of your anxious feelings or if you are suffering from physical symptoms (such as heart palpations, fatigue, sweaty hands, upset stomach, or insomnia), it may be time to get help. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s anxiety specialists today.

Has anxiety been useful for you before? If you think through all the possibilities, worst-case scenarios, you may feel more prepared. Worrying about too many things at once can get tiring though, especially when it becomes hard to control or wind down. Is anxiety getting in the way of your productivity, ability to relax, or think clearly under pressure? Through CBT, we can reframe the thoughts and behaviors that have become counter-productive.

Your past doesn’t have to define your future, and your struggles don’t have to be your identity. You have the power to make the change and live a rewarding life. No one can do the inner work for you, but you also don’t have to do it alone. I take an empathic and action-based approach to do the deep self-work necessary to heal those deep emotional wounds.

I have specific training in modalities that help clients self-regulate, build distress tolerance and attain interpersonal effectiveness such as mindfulness based stress reduction, DBT, CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Accelerated Resolution Therapy which utilized eye movement therapy and voluntary image replacement therapy to help desensitize disturbing images and distressing sensations. All of these help sooth a central nervous system gone awry that results in anxiety and panic.

I created and implemented the biofeedback program at Boston University's Behavioral Medicine. Biofeedback is a treatment modality in which you use lots of relaxation techniques while a monitor shows you what's happening in your body--much like a good coach or tutor provides you with immediate feedback. Though I don't currently have biofeedback equipment, I still have a toolbox full of anxiety-reduction techniques for our work.
