Is the weight of the world on your shoulders? Is it difficult to get up in the morning and face the day, even though it was difficult to fall asleep and turn off your mind the night before? Are your relationships suffering because you feel stressed and worried most of the time? A little anxiety can be a positive push toward action, but too much anxiety and stress are unhealthy and unhelpful. I can help you learn to de-stress with relaxation techniques and anxiety management. It doesn’t have to be this hard.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Your stress may be triggered by job loss, illness, relationships or by "positive" stressors like a new job or a baby. I provide a solution-oriented and healing environment for people who are suffering from the stress of living a "real" life. I provide a place to change the way you talk to yourself so you will stop beating yourself up and start predicting and creating positive results in your, or your family's, future. We will join together to increase your ability to cope with stress and appreciate your strengths as a human being. You can increase your tolerance for making important changes, learn to accept uncertainty, and cope with the things in life that can't be changed.

Our busy lives provide plenty of anxiety and stress. Some stress is normal, even helpful. But if you feel tense, anxious, or fearful most of the time, worry and obsess about the future, or feel psychological tension is beginning to affect your physical health, it may be time to get help. I use a variety of techniques to help people manage stress, including guided imagery, meditation, and EMDR, which is very effective for those whose anxiety stems from previous emotional wounds or trauma. No matter what approach we choose, I'll make sure you feel safe, supported, and free to explore the causes of your anxiety and stress so you can overcome them and take back control of your life.

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.

Anxiety can take the fun out of life. It can cause your body to hurt and make you feel sick. And it can be just plain annoying. But you don't have to live with anxiety, and you don't have to try to fix it by yourself. We can work together to come up with a plan to stop the constant worry and help you feel better and get more enjoyment out of life. There are many successful strategies I have used to help people relieve stress, let go of worry, and free themselves of anxiety. Together, we can find ways to get anxious thoughts out of your head so you are free to enjoy your life.

Anxiety can range from mild stress that is manageable to overwhelming stress that turns into traumatic activation. Through our somatic and relational therapies, you can feel whole again. Together, we look for what strengths and abilities you have that can be built on. Somatic resources generate an awareness of the sensations in the body that feel pleasant and grounding for the client and help them mediate the debilitating symptoms of trauma. Often clients don’t recognize the symptoms of trauma and are dealing with anxiety, fear and depression on their own. Many trauma clients do not seek therapeutic assistance right away, either because they don’t take the traumatic experience seriously or they think that “time will heal” or because of shame and...(view profile to read more)

Anxiety and stress rob us from living a fulfilling life. There is hope. It does not have to be this way! Many times keys to our stress and anxiety can be hidden in our thinking patterns as well as things that we fear. When one begins to understand the anatomy of their fears, anxieties and stress, they can learn to take control of them and no longer let them take control. Having someone walk with you through the journey of confronting the anxiety, stress and fears you have can be comforting and allow you to develop the confidence you need to face life and its many problems more effectively.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor & Certified EMDR Therapist

In 95073 - Nearby to Capitola.

The anxiety disorders are usually very amenable to EMDR therapy, which deals with disturbing memories, negative beliefs, body sensations and emotions associated with the root of the anxiety. Stress leads to anxiety which leads to low serotonin levels and then poor functioning. The EMDR is a "non-drug" treatment for anxiety and stress. This is a preferable approach for real resolution rather than taking prescription medications for anxiety, which are the "benzos", highly addictive with regular use for just a few months, and difficult to get out of one's system. Anxiety, worrying, stressing, nervousness, phobias, fears, triggers, are common problems in our high strung culture but fixable.
