Stress is a fact of life, but anxiety does not have to be. Some stress can actually be adaptive, when we understand how to manage it. I believe that much of our anxiety comes from what we tell ourselves about the stressors in life. I can help you determine how much stress is simply part of your human existence, and how much of your stress can be eliminated. I use a practical, cognitive approach to anxiety treatment, and many clients find that their anxiety is significantly reduced relatively quickly.

Most of us have too much going on and are spread too thin to be our best selves. We say "yes" to too much. If this sounds like you, we will work together to "reduce the clutter" in your life therefore reducing your anxiety and stress. Particularly in this type of therapy I utilize my 4.5 trained therapy dog, Tino. There are numbers research studies that explain the benefits of having an animal as part of the treatment, but to list a few: elevated mood, reduced blood pressure, comedic relief.

Long term exposure to stress can creep up unannounced leaving you feeling restless, exhausted and unable to relax. Did you know that anxiety is the body's attempt to defend against a perceived or a real threat? Behind the anxiety is a belief that leads to fear. I can help you with the symptoms of stress/anxiety as well as the dominating thoughts that keep your alarm system stuck 'on'. As a Christian therapist, I will teach you the skills necessary to relax your body and experience a peaceful mind. You can learn how to ground anxious flying thoughts and calm your nervous system for a more peaceful life.

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.

According to Dr. Robert Scaer, we have three choices when we face difficult situations: we can fight, run or freeze the emotions involved. Many times, people do not have the option to change things or get away- so they stuff the feelings. These feelings can "come out" as anxiety, depression, control of others, medicating and or physical illness. I am excited to treat anxiety and stess with newer techniques: Brainspotting and EEG Biofeedback. More than just relaxing, Brainspotting actually bleeds off the pent-up physical expression of emotional experiences. Biofeedback for the brain calms and optimizes the brain to reduce stress and enhance performance!

The stress of life is something we all must deal with from time to time. Sometimes, however, the level of stress can overpower our ability to cope. We then face constant anxiety, panic attacks and unnecessary worry. Often this begins early in life and persists for decades. The resulting feelings can be overwhelming and unmanageable. When we feel we cannot stand it we can turn to addictions, depression, self-harm and many other problematic behaviors. This cycle, though it seems unstoppable, can be interrupted. There are tools and skills available.I can help.

Stress is a part of life, but when it interferes with your ability to live and function you may need help. Together we will look at the patterns of thinking that are leading to limiting anxiety and worry. These thoughts can vary depending on the individual, but often have become automatic and limiting, and if unchanged continue to influence our feelings. Together we will uncover your limiting patterns of thought so that you can work at replacing them with more productive ones.

Anxiety and stress can feel overwhelming, and it is often hard to know how to begin to improve symptoms. The treatments that I offer provide specific strategies to quickly reduce feelings of anxiety and stress while exploring underlying issues that may be contributing to these symptoms. Many of the treatments that I offer are based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based approaches which are both proven to be very effective in the treatment of stress and anxiety.

Anxiety can be ongoing over time or short and intense. It can cause physical symptoms such as headaches or ulcers. It can include trouble concentrating, irritability or trouble sleeping.

I will help you develop solutions to problems in your life. I will help you learn how to reduce stress in relationships. I will help you learn relaxation skills. If you have specific phobias, I will help you lessen you fear and stress in those situations.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Most of us believe anxiety and stress come from external sources. However, upon closer examination, anxiety and stress are internal responses to our external environment. Anxiety is often a reaction to our negative beliefs about self-worth or self-efficacy. My approach is to change the way we think about and view ourselves in the midst of a stressor so that we can either eliminate it or effectively cope with it. Anxiety can also have its roots in trauma, therefore I employ trauma resolution strategies and/or EMDR therapy. Anxiety is often "triggered" by situations, thus the most effective approach is to resolve the underlying issue so that our first response is an effective response.
