Stress Management Q & A

What is stress?

Stress is a normal reaction that occurs in your body when there’s a change. The source of stress may come from the environment, your body, or your thoughts and affect your physical, emotional, or mental well-being.

Stress isn’t always a bad thing. In some situations, a healthy level of stress benefits your decision-making process in such a way that you do the right thing or take an appropriate degree of action. Unfortunately, your stress can also quickly get out of control. 

When your stress level gets too difficult to handle, it can lead to emotional, behavioral, physical, or cognitive problems. If not properly treated, high levels of stress can endanger your life. 

When should I seek stress management?

Feelings of stress are natural, but being overwhelmed by stress is not. You may benefit from stress management counseling with Dr. Liner at Flux Psychology if you’re suffering from the signs of overwhelming stress, such as:

  • Feeling depressed or unhappy
  • Finding yourself easily agitated or anxious
  • Getting easily angered or irritated
  • Feeling lonely and isolated
  • Sleeping or eating too much or too little
  • Withdrawing from others
  • Neglecting responsibilities
  • Using alcohol or drugs to relax
  • Experiencing concentration and memory issues
  • Inability to stop worrying about things
  • Loss of libido
  • Unexplained aches and pains
  • Feeling dizzy or nauseated
  • Having chest pain or a rapid heartbeat

Overwhelming stress may also increase your risk of developing a chronic disease, such as heart disease, cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, and lung ailments. 

The source of your stress may come from simple everyday things or from events that are quite complex. No matter the underlying cause, Dr. Liner can help you manage your stress to alleviate the impact it has on your daily life. 

What can I expect during stress management counseling?

Dr. Liner takes a personalized approach to therapy and develops individualized plans based on your specific needs. Through individual psychotherapy, she helps you identify your stress triggers, or stressors, and provides therapeutic exercises to help you better deal with them. 

Stress may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to consume you. For personalized, supportive care, contact Flux Psychology by phone or online today.
