Anxiety or Fears

Christina Shonkwiler

Hypnotherapist, MA, CHT
The pain you are experiencing is not who you are, it is a message that shows what's out of balance. When anxiety and fears show up in the body &/or mind as symptoms, we are being called to change, to create a life of ease and relief from our critical inner voices and demands. I believe that we all have a natural capacity to heal, given the right conditions to safely and gently come to know our true selves. I hold a supportive container with compassion and experience to allow your highest aspects to come forward and shine.

Anxiety or Fears

Jonathan Kruger Therapy

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
According to research we have upwards of 70,000 thoughts a day. Most of them pass through us without so much as a “second thought”, but all are informing a sense of how we feel about ourselves, about the world we live in, about the abundance or the scarcity in our lives. Our thoughts create our feelings and vice versa. For so many of us, “feelings” become an overwhelming, incapacitating part of our existence. What if you didn’t fear feelings? What if you had a clearer understanding of what thoughts had informed those feelings? These feelings and thoughts, which create anxiety, depression, worries, concerns or obsessions etc., can and must be dissected and understood. With insight and understanding comes relief. Situational pressures, breakups, job loss or confusion, a sense of purposelessness, become existential crisis. In my work with individuals we closely examine the myriad of thoughts that pass through you daily. How do they make you feel? How do they inform your behaviors? It can occur in opposite as well. “I got a feeling he didn’t like me”. The feeling set up thought patterns of insecurity. Which comes first? How? Why? With empathy, insight and understanding, I work with clients to intervene in this process so that you are not just a firestorm of thoughts and feelings, but rather a mindful creation of what you want to feel. Making choices of what you want to think. What do you choose to believe about yourself? What is the narrative you have created for your life and is it accurate? Unpacking childhood memories and life experiences, understanding attachment complexities and desensitizing traumatic events that occur within our lives become primary objectives in the work. Processing in a more adaptive, healthy response with these relationships, traumas and experiences follow. Together, with love, compassion and understanding, I gently help my clients discover how to live their best and fullest life, expressing the most authentic representation of self that one can be.

Sacramento, California therapist: Stephanie Brumfield, therapist
Anxiety or Fears

Stephanie Brumfield

Therapist, MSW, ASW, PPSC
In my practice, understanding and addressing anxiety and fears involves a holistic approach that recognizes these experiences as deeply intertwined with the nervous system's response to both past and present traumas. This perspective acknowledges that anxiety often signals unresolved issues demanding attention, guiding us towards a journey of healing and connection with our authentic selves. Central to our therapeutic work is the regulation of the nervous system, a critical step in creating a foundation for processing traumas and alleviating the physical and emotional manifestations of anxiety. By fostering a state of calm and safety within the body, we open pathways for individuals to explore the deeper sources of their anxiety and fears, which often stem from unprocessed traumas and the disconnection from their true selves. Together, we embark on a process of gently uncovering and working through these traumas, aiming to understand their impact and integrate these experiences in a way that promotes healing and resilience. This journey is not just about managing symptoms but about transforming the relationship with anxiety and fear, viewing these emotions as part of a larger narrative of self-discovery and personal growth. By re-establishing a connection to the authentic self, individuals are empowered to navigate their lives with a renewed sense of clarity, purpose, and inner strength. This reconnection also facilitates a deeper understanding of one's needs, desires, and boundaries, leading to more fulfilling relationships and a life that truly reflects one's values and aspirations. Through this compassionate and depth-oriented approach, anxiety and fears are transformed from overwhelming challenges into opportunities for profound healing and self-realization, paving the way for a life lived with greater peace, authenticity, and empowerment.

Anxiety or Fears

Tracy Sondern

Marriage and Family Therapist, M.A., AMFT #135825
Anxiety is a part of our primal warning system. It lets us know that danger is approaching and kicks in our fight or flight response, so that we can run from a wild animal and not be eaten. Past trauma can live in us and unconsciously trigger a flood of emotion in reaction to something seemingly unrelated. I want to help you identify your triggers and why they are happening. I’ll help you recognize signals like tightness in the chest or a knot in the stomach and then give you tools to ground yourself. Learning to self-regulate and control your level of anxiety can make a world of difference to how you experience life. I want to support and guide you to an easier way of being.

"Anxiety is the worst!" Paralyzing, distracting, exhausting. Anxiety can be specific to one area of life or generalized so that it feels like it's about everything.

I am dedicated to helping individuals gain resilience by empowering themselves to cope with more confidence and less worry. We'll work together to track down the issue that's triggering anxiety; then, we will address it so you are freed up to make choices. Let's talk about what's nipping at - or trying to devour - you. Together, we'll find ways to tame anxiety.

Los Angeles, California therapist: Jayson L. Mystkowski, psychologist
Anxiety or Fears

Jayson L. Mystkowski

Psychologist, Ph.D., ABPP
While Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) is highly effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders (e.g., Panic Disorder, Social Phobia, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), clinicians do see some “return of fear,” or partial relapse, in some patients due to a variety of factors. Over the past two decades, treatment researchers, with whom Dr. Jayson Mystkowski had the pleasure of working with at UCLA for over 10 years, have studied “return of fear” and discovered some key variables that may optimize the effects of learning during CBT for anxiety disorders (Craske et al., 2008). First, evidence suggests that focusing on tolerating fear versus eliminating fear yields better clinical outcomes in the long term. Namely, teaching clients that fear and anxiety are normal feelings, rather than attempting to “down-regulate” such feelings all the time, is more realistic and seems to engender “hardier” clients. Second, helping clients to generate an expectancy that “scary things will not happen,” is very powerful. To do this, it is important for clinicians to create more complex exposure exercises (i.e., tasks in which a client confronts a stimulus of which they are afraid), using multiple feared stimuli instead of one at a time. Then, the lack of a feared outcome becomes particularly surprising and memorable for a client and fear reduction is more potent. Third, increasing the accessibility and retrievability of non-fear memories learned during treatment are powerful factors in mitigating against a return of fear. Craske and colleagues demonstrated that exposure to variations of a feared stimulus, using a random schedule across multiple contexts or situations, is more effective than exposure to the same stimulus, on a predictable schedule, in an unchanging environment. The former paradigm, it is argued, creates stronger non-fear memories that are easier for a client to access when subsequently confronting feared objects or situations outside of the therapy context, than the later scenario. In sum, clinicians have long been aware that some fear or anxiety returns following very successful CBT treatment. As mentioned above, there are some clear, empirically supported ways to modify the therapy we provide to further help clients generalize the gains made in therapy sessions to the real world.
