Are You Struggling With Stress?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Stress

Stress is a reaction that people go through in response to situations, thoughts, or emotions. Many things can trigger stress, such as work, family, illness, relationships, or existential concerns. Stress also can be a good thing, such as when a person receives a new job opportunity, or they’re about to become a parent. When people experience large amounts of stress, their physical and mental health can suffer if they don’t care for themselves.

Available Treatment Options

Stress is a factor in nearly all mental health concerns, so it’s no wonder there are many counseling interventions to address stress. Therapists work with each person to assess their stress level and establish coping mechanisms that work for them. Alleviating stress can also decrease the negative effects of mental health concerns, working to improve the overall quality of life.
