My approach to stress management therapy
Did you know that close to 73% of Americans say that their stress is affecting their mental health?
I’m here to change that.
Life is stressful. There isn’t much that we can do about it.
What we can do something about is our perception of stress, and the way that we manage stress when it does come into our lives.
Take everything you think you know about stress relief and throw it out the window—the “just calm down” stories, the “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”, and the idea that you’re just a stresscase and you always will be.
Not all stress is bad, some of it motivates us to perform better or to get out of bed on a cold winter morning. Too much stress can leave you feeling like you can’t turn your mind off, like your thoughts are constantly racing away from you, or you’re at the end of your rope- all. The. time.
There are different types of stress:
Acute stress is a reaction to something new or challenging- it's the motivation type of stress that is actually good for you.
Episodic Stress is when you have multiple sources of acute stress that occur repeatedly one after the other- this type of stress starts to affect you because you don’t have time for your body or mind to return to a relaxed state before the next stressor comes along.
Chronic Stress is what happens when these multiple sources of stress keep coming and keep coming… and never stop. You are constantly under stress with no chance to relax or unwind… you’re feeling like you’re ready to snap and maybe you do! It feels like you’re drowning, overwhelmed… you get the point.
Together, we will investigate the source of your stressful thoughts and feelings. We will dissect the thoughts that keep you up at night. We will incorporate mind-body exercises and activities that will help you to stay calm in stressful moments and stop you from hitting your breaking point.
Because you want more than just doom scrolling on tiktok while you try to fall asleep. You want more than zoning out to reruns of The Office. You’re looking for true inner peace.
You don’t need to learn how to completely turn off your mind just to find inner peace. Because long lasting stress relief is not about never thinking stressful thoughts. It’s about learning to work with your mind instead of against it.

Stress Management Therapy FAQs
What is stress management therapy?
There are a lot of different approaches to stress management therapy. I use a holistic approach, focused on the mind-body connection that allows my clients to explore all the different ways that stress shows up in their lives. The mind-body approach includes mindfulness, movement, values exploration, self awareness breathwork, as well as anything else that is appropriate or helpful for my client.
What is the difference between stress management and stress reduction?
Stress management is what we do to handle - or manage - the stress as it comes. We can’t escape stress in life, it’s as much a part of living as is breathing. Stress management helps you to build a set of tools that will help you move through the stress when it is happening in the moment. Stress reduction is what we do the rest of the time- stress reduction is the daily maintenance of our lives that will prevent the stress from becoming overwhelming and leave you feeling swamped.
How do I know that you are the right stress management therapist for me?
That depends on you and your preferences. Some characteristics that the people who work well with me have in common are that they come to each session with at least a general idea of what they want to talk about; they are willing to try new things in session and in between sessions; they are open and honest with themselves and with me; they know that not even therapy has to be so serious all the time, and don’t mind when I use humor to help explain or bring an important point home. They also don’t mind when my dog barks in the background, because she likes to do that sometimes.
