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.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Available for Online Therapy

Over the course of time, a client may start to experience increased anxiety and find themselves beginning to become more and more tentative as they approach their relationships and personal and professional goals. I provide a comprehensive assessment, that takes into account biopsychosocial (biological, psychological and social) areas of life, and together we are able to develop a holistic and integrative plan that is adjusted to the client's changing life circumstances. When clients redesign their approach to life, they have greater insight, are transformed, and better skilled to attain a higher degree of life satisfaction.
