If you, your teen or another loved one is suffering from anxiety, you are far from alone. Anxiety disorders are the most commonly diagnosed mental health conditions in the U.S., affecting more than 40 million American adults every year. I take a holistic, integrative and strength-based approach to treating anxiety, addressing both specific symptoms and working to help you understand yourself and your experience with anxiety and heal as a whole.
Stress affects the body, mood and behavior. It impacts our relationships, ability to be present, physical health and overall sense of wellbeing. Stress wreaks havoc on our digestive systems, increases cortisol production, which can cause unwanted weight gain, and keeps us awake at night. The good news is that there are many effective and scientifically validated ways to manage and mitigate stress. I can help you with a personal specialized approach for you.
Whether eating too much, too little or consuming nutritionally bankrupt foods, irregular and unbalanced eating habits may be creating physical, mental and emotional discomforts, such as digestive problems, anxiety, depression, trouble with concentration, strained relationships and increasingly lower self-esteem. Lisa is a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC AZ 18242) and a whole foods clinical dietitian, specializing in food and eating issues.
Are you caught in the Happiness Trap? Most of us go about trying to find happiness in ways that ends up making us miserable, with stress, anxiety, and depression. With ACT treatment, you can learn how to reduce stress and worry, handle painful feelings and thoughts more effectively, break self defeating habits, overcome insecurity and self doubt and create a rich, full and meaningful life. Ms. Schmidt has completed intensive training in ACT studying virtually with therapist Dr. Steven Hayes.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment that was originally developed to treat chronically suicidal individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and it is now recognized as the gold standard psychological treatment for this population. In addition, research has shown that it is effective in treating a wide range of other disorders such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating disorders.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR therapy has been extensively researched and has demonstrated effectiveness for trauma. Ms. Schmidt employs EMDR therapy in her work with clients where it may be clinically indicated. Lisa is a member of EMDR International, and has completed an EMDIRA approved EMDR training, consultation and supervision.
