Anxiety

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow,

it only saps today of its joy.            

Leo Buscaglia

Anxiety is not just worry or being nervous. It consists of various symptoms that affect several important areas of life:

 

Physical symptoms:

  •  Upset stomach
  •  Muscle tension
  •  Shortness of breath and/or increased heart rate

 

Psychological symptoms:

  •  Excessive worry
  •  Irrational fears
  •  Sense of doom or foreboding and for some, fear of death
  •  Confused thinking and racing thoughts

 

Behavioral symptoms:

  •  Avoidance of anxiety-provoking situations
  •  Self-medication through alcohol or drugs or nicotine

 

Anxiety’s effects on women:

 

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Anxiety is the leading mental health issue among women. Women face challenges and struggles that are unique to this generation. Dr. Kristie is a skilled psychologist who is equipped to help women deal with these effects.

 

“I use my training in psychology, theology, and life coaching, along with my personal experience as a mother and working professional to help women to learn to manage multiple responsibilities, reduce stress, and enjoy life again.”

 

Men, too:

Men are also facing unique challenges and changing role expectations that are parallel to, but different from women. Dr. Paul has also developed expertise in crafting a plan that includes changing your thinking and behaviors to take control of your life, rather than the other way around.

 

And Parents:

Does this sound familiar? "My kids won't listen, my house is chaos, and my child is failing at school. I find myself yelling all the time and I'm getting depressed and discouraged."

 

 

Dr. Paul has developed sound expertise based on the best research in crafting a plan that includes changing your thinking and behaviors to take control of your life, rather than letting your emotions control you.

 

"First, I will give you tools to get your kids' attention. We will help you determine what you really want for you and your family to be successful. Then we will custom-design strategies based on proven techniques and past successes to help you reach those goals."
