Anxiety and stress seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

There is an old saying that "stress kills". You cannot function fully when stressed and you must do something about it. There are two types of anxiety. One is a normal reaction to a stressful event. The other is an abnormal reaction which can continue to plague you throughout your life. Anxiety can become overwhelming and debilitating. In time, your anxiety may generalize where you may experience anxious feelings and not even know why. Together we can help you to rid the anxiety from your life. To deal with anxiety you must confront it as the symptoms associated with it will only subside by looking at the source of the anxiety and being proactive in tackling the stress you feel.

David Silverman, Licensed LMFT, EMDR Trained

Free 60 minute First Session/Consult

Within Driving Distance of El Segundo, CA

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

Anxiety and Stress reactions aren't unusual or uncommon in today's world. Generally these reactions can range from mild to severe and can be debilitating. Stressors are rampant and how each person approaches a stressful situation is unique. First, I think it is important to meet with a doctor for a full workup to rule out any medical contributors (i.e. thyroid function). Second, I work to help clients identify specifics, what are they doing and what is going on an emotional,cognitive and behavioral levels. Once these patterns are clear and concrete this is calming . Third, learning can take place once a person is calmer and can go on to learning news ways of responding to difficulties.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of El Segundo, 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.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists

Conflict in relationships is inevitable and when couples cannot find resolution, anxiety builds. Often, this leads to shutting down or blowing up--both triggering behaviors that can drive a wedge between two people. As co-therapists, we help couples find ways to maintain differences while staying connected. Intimacy also triggers old unresolved issues that create stress. These old wounds have nothing to do with our partners. We help couples understand how these memories can interfere in the repairing with your partner.

The benefits of therapy for people who suffer from anxiety are the reduction of symptoms, and the development of greater well-being. Anxiety is a kind of friction among the moving parts of the self, an internal conflict that is distracting, depleting, and highly unpleasant. It is closely linked to stress, to boredom, and to fear of sadness. Rather than struggling, we can collaborate to turn toward the source of the anxiety and try to resolve it at the roots.

I work with clients experiencing significant symptoms of anxiety & stress to explore how their relationships and internalized narratives may be contributing to their suffering.

I call this the “Leap of Faith.” You see, the more you can experience the vulnerability of fear, the more likely the chance that you will not experience the anxiety related to it down the road. Each time you face your fears, you gain more CONFIDENCE, and this confidence/faith is the key to everything.

It can be hard for people who experience various challenges to have the confidence or desire to approach a professional. Not only we are generally too embarrassed to ask for help in unraveling our feelings, healthy functional people suffer the double stigma. Since they are used to being highly functional in most, if not all aspects of their lives, when they face unfamiliar emotional challenges it can be hard to accept or understand it. In many occasions it is not easy to say: hey, I am dealing with something that I don’t have the tools to resolve! I truly care about them and want the best possible results.

Psychologist

Stress or anxiety don’t always get in the way, but sometimes they do. Learn to identify the sources, recognize how they stop you, and change the impact they have on you and your life. Learn how old patterns shape your self-image, self-esteem, and expectations, and discover new ways of dealing with that. Fear doesn’t have to stop you from having what you want in life. And, sometimes it’s a valuable asset, like knowing which is the lion and which is the lamb. Psychotherapy with me helps you to sort out when to listen to the fears and when they no longer apply. You’ll also learn coping strategies that can help when you’re caught up in the fear. Your fears don’t have to control you.

Debilitating anxiety can make simple tasks seem overwhelming vs. the normal anxiety of approaching something new outside of one’s comfort zone. Anxiety can freeze or it can motivate change. If you are experiencing anxiety that holds you back, blocks productivity, and fulfillment of everyday tasks and dreams, it is probably time to seek professional help. In a supportive therapy environment you can learn to prioritize tasks, reduce stress, build emotional resiliency, and reconnect to inner resources that nurture and guide. Learning to tackle obstacles in a grounded step-by-step way is important for survival in a fast-paced world vs. having circumstances dictate the course of life.

Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed.

When anxiety or stress hampers your capacity for joy and creative thinking, therapy can be especially helpful. The techniques I teach are part of the treatment, but just as important is the safety of the therapeutic relationship. Here, unlike anywhere else in life, boundaries are clear, yet freeing. That means you can speak about painful subjects or strong emotions without dire expectations. You can give voice to any thought and gain the perspective that comes from hearing yourself say aloud words that were literally "unspeakable" before. At the same time, I can offer input that sheds light on, and helps you reframe, the anxieties that have spent far too long in the dark, or in control.

Stress is a part of life. We will never be fully rid of it. How we deal with it is the key. Are you constantly thinking of something you did in the past? Or often worrying about the future? When we learn to take care of ourselves in the present we can help lessen the anxiety. No one knows what the future will bring, so the worry about something that hasn't happened is wasted energy. Practice mindfulness while staying present. Learning to see the unusual cloud formations rather than being stuck in your head can be a learn skill. Anxiety does not have to control your life.

Anxiety and stress must be tended to on multiple fronts. If you are seeking help with anxiety and stress today, you are looking for immediate relief. I will work with you to identify immediate lifestyle changes, coping skills, and tools that may make anxiety more manageable. There is no quick fix or immediate cure, but some changes truly help. Anxiety often has deep sources and is an adaptive response to conscious and unconscious beliefs about yourself and the world. This type of therapeutic work moves more slowly as we work together to fully understand who you are, your unexplored ideas of who you are, and arrive at new places of understanding that can be freeing and calming.

It is a given! The issue is not that we have anxiety, rather it is not being able to make sense out of what is making us anxious. Anxiety is a warning signal that something is wrong and we need to be alert to what we need to take care of ourselves. Anxiety changes when we can be in dialogue with someone who can help us understand what the surrounded issues are that need our attention. Being alone in our anxiety keeps us trapped. Being connected in our fear changes it. This is what good therapy does. It provides a space to no longer be alone in your anxious feelings. Being responded adequately in your fear allows confidence and peace to return.
