Most people experience some type of life stress throughout their lifetime, whether it be related to a specific incident, work, family, life transition or other life situation. Stress can be positive in the sense that it helps us know when we must take care of ourselves; however, many people simply let it build up until it becomes too much to handle. Talking through stress caused by different life circumstances is important so that it does not contribute to more problems, interpersonally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. At Equilibria Psychological and Consultation Services, we help adults work through their anxiety and stress problems and teach them strategies to cope with anxious symptoms and situations in the future. A thorough evaluation is completed at the start of treatment to help identify the most effective, research informed approach to treating one’s anxiety/stress based on the individual’s needs and preferences. For adults, cognitive behavioral therapy techniques are often incorporated into treatment to help the individual understand and challenge their thoughts, feelings and behaviors that contribute to the stress problem.
