Anxiety: distress or uneasieness of mind caused by fear of danger or misfortune. We all experience anxiety at times in our life. However, complex sets of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events can create anxiety disorders in one's life. The good news is: God has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love, and soundness of mind (II Timothy 1:7). Most anxiety disorders are treatable, if you're suffering, call KCM today - we can help.

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.

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

I take a practical approach to treating anxiety and stress. I help you identify the sources of anxiety if you do not already know them. I support you in learning skills to regulate your emotions and increase awareness of body sensations and experiences in order to help you be able to control and reduce feelings of anxiety. I also use a combination of exposure therapy, if appropriate, and adjustment to lifestyle to help you reduce or eliminate sources of anxiety or stress. I know that every experience of anxiety or stress is unique and I will work with you to develop a plan of support tailored to your needs. I will provide a safe environment for you to challenge and overcome your fear/stress

Anxiety seems to be a widespread affliction these days! So often it accompanies depression, either as its source, or as a side effect. I see clients who come in to talk about panic attacks, who deal with obsessive-compulsive disorders, or who just worry about so many things that they find it difficult to shut down their minds. I may refer a client to a psychiatrist for a medical evaluation if I feel that (s)he could benefit from talking to a physician who can help them decide if this could be helpful. I find thatrelaxation techniques and cognitive strategies can be very helpful for clients whose anxiety is linked to a particular stressor or for those who have a biological basis for anxiety.
