Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

Anxiety and stress are prevalent and uncomfortable conditions that can be treated. Constant worry, tension and fear create havoc in the day to day life of an anxious person. The correct combination of stress reduction techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and emotional release contributes to a reduction in the symptoms of Agoraphobia, Panic Attacks, Generalized Anxiety, Social Anxiety, and PTSD. New understanding and behavioral patterns can release you from the painful cycle of anxiety and depression. An eye of the storm exists in every situation and therapy can help you find this peaceful place. I specialize in individualized treatment approaches that can free you from fear.

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.
