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.

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.

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 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.

Trying to balance work commitments and family can often cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. I can help you find better ways of coping with life's stressors while helping you create balance for your specific needs. Sometimes anxiety seems to appear out of nowhere and that could very confusing and isolating. For deeper rooted causes of anxiety, I use Cognitive-Bahavioral-Therapy and EMDR. CBT helps you understand the thought processes that may be causing your anxiety. EMDR helps us explore some past traumas that maybe getting triggering anxiety and then work to desensitize the trauma for more relief from the symptoms.

One source of Anxiety is a life-style full of pressure and stress when you may not be sure why you are so driven but you are moving too fast to slow down and find out what you are really feeling. Another, deeper source of Anxiety is an internal conflict in which one aspect of you is pushing in a certain direction and another aspect is either resisting or pulling in another direction. A third source of anxiety is a history of serious life difficulties when you may have been abused, ignored, or mistreated in some way. All of these kinds of anxiety can be helped if we can sit together and understand these anxieties in more depth. and find new and more effective coping mechanisms

My approach to working with anxiety and stress management is integrative. I like to incorporate the use of mindfulness, breath work, guided imagery and body-based therapies as well as a psychodynamic and experiential approach to help uncover potential underlying causes for the anxiety and stress. With this kind of approach, I've helped clients feel calmer, more relaxed and more in control of their reactions to daily stressors and experiences.

Racing pulse? Sweaty palms? Tight chest? Shortness of breath? Difficulty thinking clearly? A little anxiety keeps us alert and is a healthy, useful human function. A lot of anxiety can distract us, make us physically uncomfortable, steal our sleep,lead us to avoid important activities in life, and even increase our risk for serious illness. I help clients decrease their suffering from excessive anxiety by working on several fronts: reducing uncomfortable symptoms by increasing coping and relaxation skills; examining and changing anxiety-provoking ways of thinking; and getting to the root causes of the anxiety in order to minimize recurrences and develop mastery over excessive anxiety.

Did you know that if you had a traumatic birth you can be predisposed to anxiety? If you had early trauma and it is unresolved, current stress can trigger anxiety. When you come to see me for anxiety, I will provide an assessment and then I will decide which Lifespan Integration protocol to use to free you from that anxiety. Then I will provide you with new strategies to cope with anxiety, but usually Lifespan Integration will do that for you. For more info go to Lifespanintegration.com. I do provide a free consultation, when clients ask me.

Often, anxiety comes up because of a narrative of negative or repetitive thoughts. These thoughts are usually related to an idea about the past or the future. Once you are aware of your thoughts patterns you can develop tools to manage these thoughts to reduce and even eliminate anxiety. I will teach you Cognitive Behavioral Techniques and Stress Management Exercises to help with this process. Some clients also benefit from having an Emotional Support Animal as part of their treatment plan. I structure each treatment plan according to each client's individual needs.
