Stress and Anxiety

Stress and anxiety may come from constant, steady tension in a relationship, continuing lack of friends, no interest or excitement day after day, an inability to find meaning in life, as well as from life’s many hardships. The little unexpected occurrences and disruptions such as a flat tire, an uninvited visitor, filling out a long form, a migraine, and lack of sleep can all cause stress as well.

Ask yourself the following questions…

  • Are you often tense, uptight or unable to relax?
  • Do setbacks disturb you more than they should?
  • Do you often overlook the small pleasures in life?
  • Do you fret and worry much of the time?
  • Do you have many self-doubts and self-criticisms?
  • Does your anger flare up more than it used to?
  • Do you have trouble sleeping?
  • Do you feel tired often?
  • Do you experience aches and pain for unknown reasons?
  • Do you feel pressured and/or restless much of the time?
  • Do you fear losing control

If you have answered YES to 4 or more of the above items, we encourage you to consult Dr. Cristiano for further assistance. He can help.

Anxiety and stress appear differently in different people. Some people who suffer from anxiety and stress tend to internalize everything and become nervous, intense, and experience upset stomachs and high blood pressure. Others are excessively worried, irritable, restless and easily lose focus. Some people feel bored, listless, uninspired and tired most of the time. Dr. Cristiano possesses the training, experience, and credentials to help you regain feelings of security, self-control, and calmness that will help you get relief as quickly as possible.

Prescription medications may provide relief from many of the symptoms of stress and anxiety, but medications do not target the cause. Many prescribed medications are also habit-forming, which creates yet another problem for you. Psychological attention that is targeted and solution-focused can provide you with relief from stress and anxiety. Dr. Cristiano is quite knowledgeable and experienced in treating the emotional, cognitive and behavioral aspects of stress and anxiety.

Dr. Cristiano can help you find the answers, guide you toward your goals and assist you in regaining control of your life. But you must reach out to us first, so that we can start to help you help yourself. We encourage you to schedule your one-on-one initial consultation now. The longer you wait, the longer you will delay feeling better.

Make that first step to improve your life.

You deserve no less.
