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.

Long term exposure to stress can creep up unannounced leaving you feeling restless, exhausted and unable to relax.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Anxiety and Stress can get triggered from our thoughts, inner dialogue, memories or mental images, or "beliefs" we attribute to an activating event. Our thoughts are often ‘automatic’ because they come into our minds so quickly we are not totally aware of them. Using a Thought Record is an easy way to create awareness of how Negative Automatic Thoughts (NATs) are effecting your mood, behavior, and physiological reactions. It gives you the chance to reflect on your irrational or ineffective thoughts, to come up with more realistic thoughts and effective behaviors, to have more control over your emotional and physiological reactions to events in your life.

Sandy Graham, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 85018 - Nearby to Surprise.

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.
