One source of Anxiety is a life-style full of pressure and stress when you may not be sure why you are so driven but you are moving too fast to slow down and find out what you are really feeling. Another, deeper source of Anxiety is an internal conflict in which one aspect of you is pushing in a certain direction and another aspect is either resisting or pulling in another direction. A third source of anxiety is a history of serious life difficulties when you may have been abused, ignored, or mistreated in some way. All of these kinds of anxiety can be helped if we can sit together and understand these anxieties in more depth. and find new and more effective coping mechanisms

Most anxiety or stress comes from interpersonal relationships (spouse, children, co-workers, boss, business partners). There is always underlying meaning and emotional content in our interactions with others. Often it represents interactions you had well before you ever met one another. Getting to understand the root causes, and creating in-the-moment behaviors and ways of handling emotion can change the stress and anxiety dynamics. One of the best books I've seen on this is "Difficult Conversations" written by the Harvard Negotiation Team., Stone, Patten, and Heen.

Anxiety is a debilitating disorder that deprives people of their happiness and sense of well-being. I work with children and adults to help alleviate their suffering. Together we explore their anxiety "triggers" e.g. what brings on their anxiety, and work with question those assumptions. Next I help my clients learn how to use tools to combat the thoughts that can paralyze and torment them and bring their negative thoughts back under their control, helping them to feel happy and confident once more.

Anxiety and Stress are part of the human condition. Many of us don't realize how much of our brain's real estate anxiety and stress take up - robbing us of being able to be present for what is in front of us instead of reacting to some fear or past trauma. I can help you build your inner resilience and recognition of when you are being driven by anxiety/stress so that you can find your way out of a historic reaction and into a more current narrative.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Menlo Park, 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.

Recent studies show that moderate stress can actually make us more productive and successful. But when stress and anxiety become too much to handle, they can make life miserable. I use mindfulness-based therapy to help you increase your own innate ability to decrease anxiety and keep stress manageable. If your symptoms are related to past experiences such as painful or difficult childhood experiences, abuse or trauma, I offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR therapy is a highly effective for relieving symptoms of PTSD and improving performance. Come experience it for yourself!

Trying to balance work commitments and family can often cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. I can help you find better ways of coping with life's stressors while helping you create balance for your specific needs. Sometimes anxiety seems to appear out of nowhere and that could very confusing and isolating. For deeper rooted causes of anxiety, I use Cognitive-Bahavioral-Therapy and EMDR. CBT helps you understand the thought processes that may be causing your anxiety. EMDR helps us explore some past traumas that maybe getting triggering anxiety and then work to desensitize the trauma for more relief from the symptoms.

Who doesn't experience anxiety and stress in this life? We all do. In some cases stress comes from the ongoing challenges we encounter in daily life.

But there are tools and processes that can restore us to a more peaceful normal. Using a blend of EMDR and energy psychology tools we can bring your anxiety symptoms down from totally controlling your life to getting you back to living your life again. Plus you can learn the process for clearing your stress and anxiety yourself.

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Anxiety is an internal alarm system that gives us information about our internal state as well as possible danger in the external world. Often, anxiety is a signal of deeper, more intense emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear. It can also be a consequence of not living authentically. Once these deeper feelings are identified and expressed, they can be readily released. For example, when we say "Yes" when we really mean "No," we will often experience anxiety. In this case, the anxiety is providing us with a warning that we are not being honest (living authentically) with ourself and/or another. Therapy is the perfect place to explore this common emotion.

Fear can affect our quality of life in powerful ways. It can interrupt our sleep. When anxious, one may isolates them self from others who would otherwise offer us companionship. Fear rob us of opportunities for sex or romance. When we are afraid, we are not ourselves. The primitive physiological responses of fear are related survival or are about having no hope at all. You can learn to calm yourself, so the world appears more objectively. We are actually better able to protect ourselves, when we are able to distinguish what is factually dangerous and what is safe. When we relax, we are able to see creative possibilities in our relationships and our work.

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.

Do worries interfere with your quality of life? Is stress causing you to lose sleep? Are you uncomfortably restricted by your level of anxiety? Anxiety and stress are a normal part of life. But when they move beyond the ordinary into the overwhelming, they become an obstacle in your path. It's like that troll under the bridge - whenever you try to cross the bridge of your life, they rise up and threaten and you have to stop and back away. Therapy is a way to take a look at what overwhelms you and what can be done. I work with individuals and couples to sort out what stands behind the stress and anxiety, and what keeps you from inner peace. Call today for a phone consultation.

Do you have an unsettled feeling? A kind of constant rumbling under the surface that leaves you feeling jittery, agitated, exhausted. Anxiety can be normal and a good sign - being nervous before a test. But the kind of anxiety that debilitates you - interfering with sleep, job performance, parenting and relating can be helped and reduced or alleviated by seeing a psychotherapist. In understanding your thoughts and feelings, a therapist can help to target the underlying triggers leading to anxious feelings, providing relief and hope.

We live in a high-anxiety culture where there are a lot of demands and expectations placed on us from either work, family, ourselves, or all of the above. Therapy can help you offload your worries so that you don't have to carry them alone.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

I can help you overcome anxiety and live a calmer, more relaxed life. I practice what I call "holistic anxiety treatment," which means we look at physical, cognitive, relationship, and spiritual factors contributing to your anxiety. One size doesn't fit all, so I take an individualized approach to anxiety treatment. Your treatment plan might include dietary changes, exercise and movement, changing your thoughts and beliefs, meditation and other mindfulness practices, spiritual involvement, or family support. Depending on your circumstances, I might also help you learn to tolerate anxiety rather than just trying to get rid of it.

Licensed Psychologist

Being alive means experiencing at least some anxiety and stress. There are "optimal" levels of anxiety and less-than-optimal levels as well. If you are experiencing too much anxiety, it can feel debilitating and compromise your ability to perform or be present in life. If you are experiencing too little anxiety, you might not feel engaged or care much. With optimal levels--which is what I attempt to assist my clients in achieving--you feel motivated but not hampered in your day to day experiences.

Stress and Anxiety are normal emotional experiences of life, yet they can be debilitating if not understood nor managed well, and the good news and hope is that the intensity of each emotion can be reduced substantially upon education, process, and learned skills. We all live with expectations of self and others which generates normal levels of stress yet with too much stress perspective, purpose and meaning can be compromised. It is easy to be under the control of anxiety and stress and not fully recognize this, yet what is hopeful is how the process can be reversed to discover how you can control your anxiety and stress appropriately.

Anxiety can range from mild stress that is manageable to overwhelming stress that turns into traumatic activation. Through our somatic and relational therapies, you can feel whole again. Together, we look for what strengths and abilities you have that can be built on. Somatic resources generate an awareness of the sensations in the body that feel pleasant and grounding for the client and help them mediate the debilitating symptoms of trauma. Often clients don’t recognize the symptoms of trauma and are dealing with anxiety, fear and depression on their own. Many trauma clients do not seek therapeutic assistance right away, either because they don’t take the traumatic experience seriously or they think that “time will heal” or because of shame and...(view profile to read more)

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.

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.
