What is the starting point for virtually everyone who seeks the help of a therapist? It is very likely some type of stress. Stress can make its presence known in so many ways and it is highly likely that every reason you might consider seeing a therapist starts with stress of some kind. When we think of stress, it may be connected to a shaky financial situation, a tenuous work situation, difficult relationships, an illness, or some combination of these stressors. And, if the stress you are experiencing is the result of an issue occurring inside of you, stress is the result of the issue, not the source of it. No matter how stress is making itself known in your life, seeking support from a qualified and caring therapist can help you sort through the issues you face and come up with strategies for managing your stress. Laurie Grengs specializes in helping individuals cope with stressful situations and find calm, peace and a way forward.
Confront and Manage your Stress
Laurie Grengs has worked as a licensed psychologist in Minnesota for more than thirty-five years. In that time, she has served many clients and developed a reputation as an excellent practitioner with the experience and expertise to help you understand and overcome the stress you are feeling in your life.
Stress can take just about any shape, form, or intensity. Unfortunately, the world around us tends to tell us to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and move forward rather than dealing with the stress head on. When the messages we receive about stress are reinforced by media, relatives, and friends, it is common for us to feel like seeking the help of a therapist is a sign of weakness. But when you work with Laurie Grengs to understand and overcome the stress in your life, you will be given an opportunity to change your thinking about stress. Confronting your stress is an act of courage. We would never tell a child that walking the long way home after school to avoid a bully is courageous, but when we reinforce messages that say it is courageous to avoid therapy for stress, we are doing just that. Stress is like a bully that needs to be confronted.
