We all have stress and emotions.

It is important to learn how to manage stress properly so that it doesn’t affect us negatively. We live in a fast-paced world filled with pressures and responsibilities so now, more than ever, if we don’t take care ourselves the stress can take its toll on us mentally, physically and emotionally.

Since emotions and stress are unavoidable, the key is how we respond to them.

Not everybody is taught healthy, appropriate ways to deal with our stressors and feelings. Learning these tools can positively impact all areas of your life.

While a lot of today’s technology is meant to make our lives easier and more efficient, it is also easier to become overwhelmed and over stimulated on a regular basis and more difficult to “unplug” and truly relax. Somehow many of us have gotten away from taking care of ourselves, often feeling that it is too “selfish”, but it is critical to make yourself a priority!

Stress & Mood Management - Touchstone Therapy & Mindset Coaching

Stress can manifest in many different ways, including feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, depressed, anxious, and/or irritable.

Many people either take these feelings out on themselves in unhealthy or self-destructive ways or on those around them. In my practice, I try to help people learn to listen to their needs and emotional reactions and to deal with them in a healthier, more effective way.

Since stress affects our moods and emotions, anxiety and/or depression often go hand in hand with stress. I have a lot of experience working with people suffering from anxiety and/or depression. Sometimes these issues are the main reason somebody seeks treatment and other times they are the by-product of the presenting problem.

Dealing with anxiety or depression can be draining and take an enormous toll on you, not only mentally and emotionally but physically. It can also affect your relationships and the ability to function at your best. Fortunately, there are many tools that can help you manage these difficult emotions and feel like yourself again.

A part of my approach to treating mood disorders is to address the negative thoughts that often lead to these negative emotions. Our minds and thoughts are very powerful, so we can work together to develop more positive thoughts and coping skills.
