"My anxiety feels like being stuck in a riptide without a life preserver."
Anxiety and stress manifest in ways that are unique for everyone. Chronic butterflies in the stomach, heart pounding heavily, or pressure in the chest. Your mind may circle endlessly with worries, negative self-talk, concerns about the past, future "what ifs".
Integrating relational neuroscience and somatic understanding of the mind-body connection, we will work together to understand how past experiences, perceptions of self and others, and stressors in your current life influence your present day concerns. Once better understood, there is more internal room to explore positive ways of authentically supporting ourselves in moments when we are not feeling our best.
Tools fostered throughout our sessions include: emotional and body-based regulation skills, self-compassion, effective communication, resiliency building, and somatic affective awareness.
