For decades, stress has been considered America’s #1 Health Problem
Stress triggers are everywhere in our world, from work to the economy, family, health, finances, your smartphone and beyond. Fortunately, proper stress management skills can help you live a more balanced, happy and healthy life.
Let’s start with the idea that not all stress is bad. In small doses, a stressful situation can actually provide extra energy, while keeping us alert and focused during a time of need. However, when the stress dosage passes a certain level, you can become overwhelmed, shut down or lose your ability to respond positively.
Do I need stress management therapy?
Everyone can benefit from learning new stress management techniques. By reducing stress in your everyday life, you can improve your mood, immune system, longevity, productivity and even your sex life.
When you let stress take hold, you increase your risk of dozens of illnesses, including headaches, insomnia, fatigue, heart disease and the common cold. Stress also can contribute to mental conditions, including anxiety and depression.
At Well Clinic, the counselors at our stress management clinic can teach you techniques to reduce the effect stress has on your life. An integrated treatment might include traditional individual therapy, meditation, nutritional recommendations, and changing thought patterns through cognitive behavioral therapy.

- Losing a job

- Going through a breakup
- Getting married
- Having a child
- Having a child go off to college … or sleepaway camp

MEET OUR STRESS MANAGEMENT COUNSELORS
I absolutely love Well Clinic! From the beginning, my husband and I felt like we were in a comfortable and safe space.
Our couple’s therapy bridged gaps in our relationship and helped us understand each other that much more.
Well Clinic is an oasis, especially for busy professionals like me.
It’s a relaxing and safe space, nothing like the stuffy or drab offices you’d expect when going to a therapist.
Well Clinic’s inviting and professional design makes me feel comfortable and at ease, which probably benefits the work I am doing.
In fact, it doesn’t really feel like a therapy clinic at all, which I find awesome.
