Feeling Anxious or Stressed?
Your thoughts don’t have an off switch. They prevent you from falling asleep at night or wake you up at 4 a.m. They cloud your head when you want to paying attention to other things: your kids, your partner, your job. This might not be so bad if you had new thoughts all the time. But, most of the time they feel like a playlist on repeat. Unfortunately, you don’t like the playlist very much.
Perhaps you spend time anxious over your financial situation. You worry how you are going to afford schooling for your children or retirement. Perhaps there has been one too many unexpected school closings and you are struggling to balance your professional and personal lives. You may fret over the health of an ailing parent, a child, a spouse, or, perhaps yourself.
You make endless to-do lists, and worry because you can never seem to catch up. Trying to keep-up with everything life in Philadelphia and on the Main Line throws at you is challenging to say the least. It can mean that you have little or no time to take care of yourself. And, you are very afraid that all the balls you are juggling are about to fall.
But, life doesn’t have to be that way.
As a licensed clinical psychologist, I am trained in empirically supported treatments -- that is, shown by research to be effective -- aimed at helping you feel less overwhelmed and more relaxed. Together we can identify strategies that can promote better self-care and allow you to enjoy life on the Main Line without as much worry, stress, or anxiety. Wouldn’t life be better if that chorus of worry and stress was not constantly playing in your head?
