Professional Counseling & Education
Many people also know me as Chris Diesen. Either is fine!
As a therapist specializing in stress related concerns, from overwhelm and worry to the results of traumatic experiences, I've come to learn that processing and resolving the pain and problem is only part of the healing and growth experience.
While life can be challenging and sometimes we need a little extra support to overcome our obstacles, no matter what you're going through, I also recognize that not everyone has access, needs or is ready for the professional clinical support of therapy or counseling.
So, if you're looking to complement your healing and growth experience or looking for helpful support in a variety of effective ways that add to the therapy process, we now also offer services to help you continue on your way with relevant and helpful support for where you are on your life's journey, from educational workshops for organizations and soon to be available here for individual and personal access at any time,
to personally tailored retreats for professional helpers, women and couples..
When it comes to living, whether it be stress management, recovering from relational trauma, your psychological well-being is important, whether you are a beginner, an expert, or somewhere in between.
We offer a variety of high-quality information and education designed to prepare you to not only understand your situation, but to do something about it. We offer individual, small group, organizational and community education that meets the adult-learner's style, wherever you are.
These offerings are not therapy AND therapy is typically not a prerequisite. While they're not therapy, they certainly can complement and excel your therapy experience.
When it comes to life, it's not always easy and clear. This can impact not only the quality of your psychological health, but also your physical health and relationships. At the Anxiety and Stress Relief Center, we offer counseling and therapy for adults regarding a variety of issues in life, specifically stress, anxiety, trauma and burnout. With the cutting edge techniques we provide, suffering becomes optional.
**At this time Chris does not have openings for new therapy clients**

**For those who have previously been seen and looking for additional support, please contact us.**
This was a life changing question and perspective change for me. It was also the beginning of a mid-career change that began about 15 years ago and lead me to be here today sharing this with you. I now regularly help others do the same life changing work at the intersection of shifting from surviving to living well.
If you're often overdoing it or under doing it in some way..
then you may want to consider how you're going about life in the way that you are. Is your way conducive to a quality life? One where you have the best chance at aging well, so that your well-being aligns with your physical age, rather than lagging behind. Is the way you spend your time and who it's with fulfilling?
So, if the stress and pressure in your life is draining and tiresome or in some way holding you back, then the options for your professional and personal self care that we offer could help you.
While there is an an aspect of stress than can be helpful in accomplishing and getting things done, there are a lot of pressures that have less than ideal results over time, ranging from a sense of discontentment to physical illness, that you may later be left to wonder if chronic stress played a part. Research is showing that about 90% of all physical health diagnoses have stress as a contributing factor.
As I help people looking to move past problems and grow with supportive learning, I also help to promote resilience and growth.
While counseling can be a good option that's typically useful and effective...
it’s not all that can be helpful. While counseling or therapy is an option, (and might I say, a commonly super helpful option), I understand it's not the only solution. Recognizing the challenges of accessing therapy, I help to integrate education into the therapeutic process, making information and ideas on self-care and life skills more readily and easily accessible.
While not everyone is ready for counseling, it's more common than every that there are commonly barriers to access effective support.
