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.

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.

To the extent that irritability and hypervigilance are symptomatic of underlying trauma, I use an integrative approach to treating anxiety and stress. Talk therapy is incredibly useful in helping change your thoughts, but you cannot talk your way out of feeling; you can only feel your way out of feeling. When anxiety and stress are robbing you of the ability to feel embodied and present for your life, it can be difficult to manage interpersonal relationships, sexual vitality, work obligations, career ambitions, and even physical health. By reducing anxiety and stress, you can be intentional about finding ways to thrive in all areas of your life.

Anxiety can act as a major roadblock in one's life. It can hinder our progress towards goals, keep us from new experiences, and put up walls in our relationships. We often don't realize, however,, that a certain level of stress is necessary and keeps us productive and motivated. Learning what healthy, optimum stress levels are for you and how to successfully move stress levels up and down to this level is crucial. Discard unsafe environments and unsafe people. Bring anxiety to a tolerable level and utilize it's energy towards positive action. Positive action builds confidence. Confidence and safe environment/people in one's life lowers unhealthy high levels of anxiety and stress.

You may have incessant thoughts racing through your mind, you can't stop analyzing, and you are stuck in the future catastrophizing about possible outcomes, or ruminating about your past choices and life experiences. Your body state is heightened and on-the-go. You try to relax because people tell you so but it doesn’t work. You wonder why you can't just 'let things go" and "go with the flow" just like many other people do. With anxiety, we get stuck either in the past or the future. Our near-constant mind chatter and physiological arousal deprives us of being in the present moment and cherishing invaluable daily moments. Instead, you find yourself wanting to control things to lessen your a

Tools are specific for your wounds. Stress and anxiety limits our capacity to really connect with life and with love. Anxiety and stress often stems from wounds in the core of the personality that are long ago forgotten. Buried feelings can keep you so wound up and compulsive that you can't relax and feel present. Anxiety can keep you stuck living "in your head" disconnected from the rich, full life you are meant to feel! Don't settle, learn to use the tools to release anxiety and stress!
