Counseling for Chronic Stress

Do you feel constantly overwhelmed? Is every day a struggle? Whether everyday stressors have started to pile up, or you've had a significant event occur, such as becoming a new mom or a caregiver for someone with a chronic illness, you are likely in a state of chronic stress.  

We all experience stress. Much of the time, stress is a good thing. It gets us up in the morning and gives us that energy boost to meet that deadline or pass that exam. Yet, when high levels of stress become chronic we begin to experience significant mental, emotional, and physical consequences.
