Stress Reduction Training

Stress is an experience that goes hand in hand with 21st century living. To a certain degree, stress is an unavoidable part of living a meaningful and engaging life. Stress can even be adaptive, as it helps us focus our attention on solving challenges and creating change in our lives. While stress is a part of life, sometimes, we can experience it as dominating our lives, as occurs with chronic stress.


When we face continuous ongoing stressful situations, experiences, and people and are unable to effectively cope with the difficulties and challenges life throws at us, chronic stress often results. Symptoms of chronic stress may include feeling drained, overworked, stretched to your limits, on edge, frequent  irritability, and feelings of burnout on an ongoing basis.

Stress is more common than you think

Chronic stress is increasingly common in modern life with the constant change, increasing demands, and widespread financial and interpersonal challenges that face those living in 2021. If you are experiencing stress as life limiting, impairing your ability to function, overwhelming, and blocking you from living your life, we can help.

How we can help

In stress reduction training, our therapists will provide you with clear, practical, and effective strategies that you can implement immediately, to begin developing balance and ease in the midst of ongoing stress. As part of this work, we will help you look at ways to reduce your stress load and build skills that will help you deal with the experience of stress more effectively, so that experience less overwhelm and gain greater capacity to surf the waves of whatever challenges you are facing in your life.
