To be human is to feel anxious at different point throughout the day. However, when stress and anxiety becomes too high medical attention and/or therapy is needed to regulate your nervous system. I have a CBT and mindfulness based approach to high levels of anxiety. The combination of CBT and mindfulness based practices will allow us to see what is activating your stress and increasing your anxiety as well as, concrete tools you can practice to reduce anxiety in your life.

Depression, anxiety, excessive worry, and challenges in relationships are rooted in insufficient emotional attunement in formative years. After providing you practical and effective tools that lower anxiety and reduce stress symptoms in the moment; I focus on really attuning to your experience and helping you experience being accepted. As our relationship develops, I find it normal that you will internalize an internal ability to experience yourself as acceptable. After this happens, you will find that the normal "pain in the ass life experiences" that you find will still be there, but you will have a different sense of self that will allow you to navigate them a deeper sense of self!

Anxiety and stress have the ability to build up uncontrollably until we are so overwhelmed that we hardly know what to do with ourselves. With rising challenges and demands at work and at home, anxiety and stress have become a daily part of life for most people. These issues can get so burdensome that we hardly have the capability to see the underpinning nuances of our life experiences that are so connected to these feelings. I can help you see the big picture of your life through dialogue so that you can identify how various parts of yourself are interconnected. This will empower you to make the changes that you want or need in working through these tumultuous feelings.

Anxiety comes in many forms, from a feeling of underlying pressure, stress, or persistent worry, to full-blown, terrifying panic attacks. The good news is that we know an enormous amount about how to treat anxiety. There's an inherent bind, though: anxious people are often anxious about trying therapy. I encourage you to just make the phone call, talk to us a little about what you're facing, and think about making an initial session appointment. The data shows that we will probably be able to help you.

I work with my clients to help them understand the differences between stress and anxiety. In both cases, I practice supportive, interactive psychotherapy in which I help my clients become insightful about the sources of their stress or anxiety. In treating anxiety disorders, I have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and/or a gradual approach to Exposure Therapy to be helpful. I generally refer my clients who suffer from anxiety to a colleague psychiatrist, with whom I work collaboratively, for medication management. In working with my clients who present with either disorder, I often teach strategies like meditation, relaxation training and journaling as a part of my therapeutic approach.

When people become disconnected from themselves and from their bodies due to overwork, chronic relational conflicts, or inattention to bodily signals of fatigue, it is not uncommon for them to experience high levels of stress and anxiety. I work with my clients to help understand what these symptoms of stress and anxiety are trying to communicate to them and to help them to listen. I am trained in both depth psychotherapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, so I use both of these approaches to help my clients understand what they may be repeating from their past that may be contributing to their high levels of stress and anxiety and to help them to be more mindful in the present moment.

If you suffer from anxiety in any form—including panic attacks, insomnia, having a generally nervous predisposition, experiencing a kind of anxious depression, or general lifestyle stress—the good news is that these are very treatable conditions. By teaching you mindfulness and breathing techniques, as well as using other modalities and working directly with the underlying source of anxiety, I'll help you learn to self-regulate when you're feeling anxious, and teach you how to relate to your anxiety differently, allowing you to feel more natural states of ease and well-being.

Anxiety and stress are two of the most common reasons people seek therapy. Sharing our feelings with family or friends can leave us feeling like a burden to the ones we love. When exercise or a vacation are not enough, therapy can help you learn how to minimize the amount of anxiety and stress in your life. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy has been shown to be an effective tool in the treatment of both everyday anxiety and stress, and the anxiety and stress that result from a traumatic event or crisis. Clients can learn to identify triggers and develop a "toolbox" of ideas to help them manage the often overwhelming feelings that can affect us everyday.

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.
