Anxiety disorders are the most common issue that brings people to therapy. Although anxiety is a normal emotion because it helps us not enter dangerous situations, it can take over people's lives. Treating anxiety issues often involves a combination of learning to tolerate some feelings or normative stress, eliminating negative thoughts that contribute to maladaptive anxiety and developing coping skills to decrease anxiety when is arises. In additions, it is often helpful to process when the anxiety disorder first developed. Sometimes when someone can see the connection between the beginning of the anxiety and the way it has developed, they are able to simply stop the thoughts themselves

Anxiety and stress are two of the most common reasons people seek therapy. Sharing our feelings with family or friends can leave us feeling like a burden to the ones we love. When exercise or a vacation are not enough, therapy can help you learn how to minimize the amount of anxiety and stress in your life. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy has been shown to be an effective tool in the treatment of both everyday anxiety and stress, and the anxiety and stress that result from a traumatic event or crisis. Clients can learn to identify triggers and develop a "toolbox" of ideas to help them manage the often overwhelming feelings that can affect us everyday.

In addition to being a licensed Marriage Family Therapist, I am also a ceritified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner as developed by Dr. Peter Levine, and a certified Structural Integration Practitioner as developed by Dr. Ida Rolf. Using these body-based technologies in what we call a "bottom up" approach to anxiety and stress is a lot more effective than the "top down" approach of traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. That's because anxiety and stress are artifacts of the reptillian brain and limbic system not the neocortex where CBT works.

Any change – or a need for change is stressful and can cause anxiety. Some of us live in a constant state of anxiety. Both are natural. One is struggling to adapt, the other is sensitive to the ongoing uncertainties that we live with day-to-day. Being in a constant state of stress or anxiety may be due to a traumatic experience or it could simply be how you are made. In either scenario, learning to recognize and manage your anxiety can add years to life, pleasure to your relationships, and happiness to your daily experience. This is accomplished through identifying the sources and working with our own particular patterns of response to change, dissatisfaction, and uncertainty.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I work with my clients to help them understand the differences between stress and anxiety. In both cases, I practice supportive, interactive psychotherapy in which I help my clients become insightful about the sources of their stress or anxiety. In treating anxiety disorders, I have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and/or a gradual approach to Exposure Therapy to be helpful. I generally refer my clients who suffer from anxiety to a colleague psychiatrist, with whom I work collaboratively, for medication management. In working with my clients who present with either disorder, I often teach strategies like meditation, relaxation training and journaling as a part of my therapeutic approach.

Feeling anxious is never comfortable; stresses of life often bring us to that point. Having a safe and compassionate listener can be the beginning of alleviating some of the pressure that causes these disruptive emotions. Being able to talk about your struggle in a trusting space allows you to put some of the angst outside of yourself and begin to look at your anxiety more objectively - allowing you to make sense of it and temper it. When you hold all of this as your own it continues to grow and expand. I can provide you a safe space. I am direct and empathetic so we will honestly explore your "stuff." Call today. Begin to make your life more manageable. You need not do this alone.

Anxiety takes so many forms. The root is basically fear that manifests in so many symptoms. I help adults and children that suffer from this debilitating condition by giving them simple tools to practice as soon as they feel anxiety coming on. As they practice and use the tools to help them in their everyday activities, we work on processing where that anxiety originated from - with that the healing begins.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Blackhawk, CA

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

When people become disconnected from themselves and from their bodies due to overwork, chronic relational conflicts, or inattention to bodily signals of fatigue, it is not uncommon for them to experience high levels of stress and anxiety. I work with my clients to help understand what these symptoms of stress and anxiety are trying to communicate to them and to help them to listen. I am trained in both depth psychotherapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, so I use both of these approaches to help my clients understand what they may be repeating from their past that may be contributing to their high levels of stress and anxiety and to help them to be more mindful in the present moment.

Then I will provide you with new strategies to cope with anxiety, but usually Lifespan Integration will do that for you. For more info go to Lifespanintegration.com.

Depression, anxiety, excessive worry, and challenges in relationships are rooted in insufficient emotional attunement in formative years. After providing you practical and effective tools that lower anxiety and reduce stress symptoms in the moment; I focus on really attuning to your experience and helping you experience being accepted. As our relationship develops, I find it normal that you will internalize an internal ability to experience yourself as acceptable. After this happens, you will find that the normal "pain in the ass life experiences" that you find will still be there, but you will have a different sense of self that will allow you to navigate them a deeper sense of self!

Often when someone is anxious or stressed, they have difficulty focusing on anything else other than their anxiety. Sometimes, a person will go to extremes to try and relieve their anxiety. This can manifest in the form of impulsive decisions, using alcohol or other substances to self-medicate. Most people who have anxiety see it manifest in different areas. For example, a person who is anxious about public speaking, may also be anxious about being in small spaces. We work together to try and figure out the origin and the severity of your anxiety. I examine your thought process, which ultimately affects your behavior. We work together to retrain how you think and manage your anxiety.

Anxiety and stress have the ability to build up uncontrollably until we are so overwhelmed that we hardly know what to do with ourselves. With rising challenges and demands at work and at home, anxiety and stress have become a daily part of life for most people. These issues can get so burdensome that we hardly have the capability to see the underpinning nuances of our life experiences that are so connected to these feelings. I can help you see the big picture of your life through dialogue so that you can identify how various parts of yourself are interconnected. This will empower you to make the changes that you want or need in working through these tumultuous feelings.

These days, many of us live with a good deal of anxiety and stress in our daily lives. My way of working with both conditions is to help bring relief to the immediate distressing symptoms (worry, panic, fear, etc) as well as to address and heal their underlying root causes. I help clients access their own self-regulating, inner resources to find a sense of calm in themselves, as well as creating a safe place for them to gently "feel into" and release the emotions behind the anxious tension.

Anxiety and Stress has many causes, but is often a symptom of getting stuck in the past, or future, and thus unaware of the present. Or it could be a memory stored in the body (Yes it happens). Whatever the cause, with warmth and caring, I help guide clients to notice where the anxiety shows up in their body. Research shows that this embodied awareness wires in a new healthier way of relating with oneself, others—and with life. Amazingly, this process often yields deep insights and compassion. Another approach I use is to work with the pattern that initially created the anxiety, and “update” with a new healthier pattern, using cognitive reframing.

I can teach you specific tools to help with anxiety and stress reduction on the physical level. We may also explore the deeper causes of anxiety, your history, and how to find ground in the midst of uncertainty. It is easy to become anxious when our minds are consumed with thoughts of the past or future speculations. By guiding awareness, I will help you to return to the present moment even as we talk, to feel your body and senses in the here and now. Building your capacity to be aware in the present moment greatly reduces anxiety.

But there are tools and processes that can restore us to a more peaceful normal.

Pick anytime in your life and I bet there was anxiety and stress there. Probably what brings you to seeking therapy now is some sort of anxiety or stress. My belief is that although these things are constants, we can have a different relationship with them. That's what I offer my clients in therapy. The big difference is do I rule over my worries or do they rule over me. I help individuals have the former relationship.
