Stress isn't always a bad thing, but over time, continued strain on your body from routine stress can contribute to serious physical and mental health problems. Stress is difficult to define because sometimes an appropriate stress response is inappropriate to another. However, the evidence is clear that most stress is a negative. Speaking with a trained professional can help you learn to deal with stress and become more aware of your own thoughts and feelings. Common types of treatment include: cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, alternative therapies and medication.

Stress frequently impacts our nervous, digestive and musculoskeletal systems in negative ways (tense shoulders much?). It also negatively impacts our relationships. I help clients manage and reduce stress by identifying and eliminating unnecessary stress and teaching management and reduction techniques for things that cannot alway be avoided (like your mother/boss/neighbor/etc).

Stress is inevitable but doesn't have to be toxic. I take a psycho educational approach to stress so that clients understand the healthy and unhealthy consequences of stress. I work to identify burnout and work with clients to change their relationship with the stressors they cannot control, eliminate the stressors that do not serve them, and manage and cope with their stress in a healthy way.
