I help stressed and anxious individuals and couples with strategies to help them improve satisfaction with self and others.
Counselor in Canton, GA
While I am clinically trained to offer services to most people who need help with stress, anxiety, and relationships, I can also offer a Christian perspective on anxiety and relationships for those who want to work on these issues with someone who understands and respects the Christian worldview. I have heard from many Christians that they want to have a counselor who can identify with with Biblical concepts with which they were raised or believe to be an important part of their lives.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in America affecting 1 in 5 adults. While anxiety disorders are very treatable, less than 40% reach out for professional help. In order for the anxiety to be considered a problem, it usually causes some physical, mental, social, family, or career difficulties before seeking help. One of the more effective treatments for anxiety is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which I can help you practice to decrease stress and anxiety.
Most couples say they want better communication. One study suggested that 93 percent of our communication is nonverbal. Here is the breakdown: 7 percent by the words used 38 % by tone of voice 55 % by the nonverbal communication such as eye contact, facial expression, and body posture While communication is what most couples state they want, as you can see above, much more than words are needed. In fact, what most couples mean is that they really want better connection.
