Stress Management

 Stress is a natural, physiological response that involves interactions between our mind, body, and environment.  Stress is not inherently bad, we need a certain, optimal level of stress in order to remain alert and maintain performance. Problems occur when we experience too much stress.  We overtax both our physical and cognitive resources.  Chronic, high levels of stress have been associated with various serious physical and psychological difficulties including insomnia, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity, depression, and anxiety disorders. Using CBT and Mindfulness techniques, Dr. Libben helps her clients develop a strategic plan to help better manage their stress.  Such a plan will involve interventions to modify stress-producing thoughts and improve coping capabilities.
