Overcoming Anxiety & Stress

Are you struggling with stress, anxiety, or even panic?

Stress and anxiety are challenges people face everyday, especially living in the high cost hustle bustle of Silicon Valley. While normal levels of anxiety are actually necessary to human functioning, too much anxiety leads to constant feelings of pressure, and may even create unhealthy patterns of behavior such as substance abuse, addiction, complicated relationship patterns at home and work, and even debilitating panic attacks. Learning to manage your anxiety is typically a hit or miss experience for most people, with little to no consistent success in relieving anxious thoughts and feelings.

You want to wake up each morning with positive energy and purpose.

You want to overcome the challenge of living in this stress filled world. Imagine you had the latest tools from science and medicine to live with vitality. What you need is an expert to get you up to speed, help you create an action plan for manageable change, and compassionately support you to rise up to experience your best self. 

I will help you gain insight, take action, and experience transformation in your life to have more Presence, Peace, and Joy.

My Approach

My approach to treating anxiety begins with creating a calm safe place for you where you will learn about the Science of Anxiety, and why your body and brain overreacts to stressors. You will learn a variety of techniques for calming your overactive brain and body. You will quickly feel more empowered and in control of your stress, which allows you to make better choices for yourself, your work, and your relationships.

I will help you gain Insight into your intention, motivation, and goals, as well as the obstacles that keep you from achieving what you want. You will experience a safe judgment-free environment to explore all your thoughts and questions without shame or guilt. When you find yourself stuck, you will receive compassionate encouragement to face your fears, as well as science-based techniques to resolve and overcome emotional blocks. I help you create a sequential plan so you aren't overwhelmed and can take it one step at a time, building confidence and increasing initiative. Using a holistic approach allows you to learn the skills and tools to understand and manage your whole self, which you leverage to successfully complete your plan and action steps.
