The daily stresses of life along with major life stressors don’t have to consume us or deteriorate our lives. You can learn how to move out of stress and live in the present moment from a peaceful place. Our work together can empower you to recognize the warning signals in your body that indicate to you that you are experiencing stress. Once you are aware of the signals and recognize the sources of stress, you can make different choices around your thoughts and behaviors that can minimize or even eliminate the stress response.
The goal of stress management is a balanced life in all areas: physically, emotionally, spiritually, and relationally. Learning to take charge of how you deal with problems from your thoughts, emotions, schedule and environment is the way that you can move from a stressful place to a balanced place.
Results you can expect from therapy for stress:
- Learn how to set boundaries. Say no to people or situations that drain you or increase your stress.
- Be more assertive and express your feelings. If something or someone is bothering you, you will learn new skills to communicate in a respectful way so that resentment won’t build up.
- Focus on the positive. Stress can weigh us down and cause us to focus on the negative. You will learn to reframe situations by looking at them from a different perspective.
- Make time for fun. We will develop strategies for you to nurture yourself so that you can make it a priority to practice ways to relax, recharge, and engage in fun activities.
