Most of the time this will involve helping you see your anxiety and defenses and building your capacity to accept and feel your hidden feelings.
We all have suffering in our lives-- it's part of human experience. Too often, however, there is a layer of unnecessary psychological pain caused by unconscious defenses. We often resist painful feelings and the realities they point to. When we get stuck in our resistance we get emotionally sick and our suffering increases. I work together with patients to honestly and compassionately untangle, face, and accept the truths they've tended avoid on their own.

As a psychotherapist, I use a holistic approach that blends clinical research with Eastern wisdom. I have trained extensively for a decade with renowned Psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffery M. Schwartz in his Four Step Method, which combines Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with the Buddhist principle of Mindfulness. Although, the Four Steps was originally created to treat OCD, my recent collaboration in the advancement of the Four Steps has shown that it is also successful for various circumstances including anxiety , depression, phobias, addiction, and eating disorders. My work is highlighted in Dr. Jeffrey M. Schwartz's new book, "You Are Not Your Brain".

I can help you improve relationships and intimacy, manage stress and anger, cope with crises and life changes, or address fears , obsessions or compulsions.
I believe that effective therapy does not necessarily have to be difficult, painful or long-term. I specialize in Collaborative, Narrative and Solution-Focused approaches to help clients overcome challenges and create solutions and change. I see individuals as truly heroic, struggling against problems rather than "having" or "being" the problem. This can allow your inherent knowledge, strengths and resources to emerge, opening new possibilities for change and growth.

However you come into therapy is perfect - you can't do this wrong. Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by anxiety , sadness, or the intensity of our emotions. Other times we can feel numb and not be able to feel much of anything. These are painful, but common experiences— you are not crazy. Together, we will collaboratively explore your experiences, feelings, hopes, and desires. I will offer guidance and tools that incorporate the mind, body, heart, and spirit; allowing for increased experiences of clarity, stability, and connection.

Are you stressed and use alcohol, other substances, food, exercise, sex, work, spending, gambling, or screen use excessively? Do you think “I got this” after planning a strict regimen for change only to break it soon after? Do failed attempts cause you to feel down? Do you long for past times when you could enjoy these pleasures? Do you suspect there may be core issues that drive these behaviors but fear slowing down to explore them? Is there a personal or family history of trauma or emotional issues that causes anxiety ? Do you feel exhausted and yearn to wake up refreshed? Are you isolating to avoid people who are concerned?

There may be anxiety or hesitation about what counseling is all about.
I believe we all have resilience. Our life may not come with a map, and we experience daily challenges to traumatic events with more lasting impact, like the death of a loved one, a life-altering accident, or a serious illness. Each change affects us differently, bringing a flood of thoughts, strong emotions and uncertainty. Yet we generally adapt well over time to stressful life-changing situations. We may end up feeling stuck or alone, struggling with anxious feelings, sadness, guilt or pain. I will meet you in these difficult places and we will walk together, helping you break through to find hope, power, connection and energy.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for an Encinitas anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Encinitas.
