These days, many of us live with a good deal of anxiety and stress in our daily lives. My way of working with both conditions is to help bring relief to the immediate distressing symptoms (worry, panic, fear, etc) as well as to address and heal their underlying root causes. I help clients access their own self-regulating, inner resources to find a sense of calm in themselves, as well as creating a safe place for them to gently "feel into" and release the emotions behind the anxious tension.

Anxiety disorders are the most common issue that brings people to therapy. Although anxiety is a normal emotion because it helps us not enter dangerous situations, it can take over people's lives. Treating anxiety issues often involves a combination of learning to tolerate some feelings or normative stress, eliminating negative thoughts that contribute to maladaptive anxiety and developing coping skills to decrease anxiety when is arises. In additions, it is often helpful to process when the anxiety disorder first developed. Sometimes when someone can see the connection between the beginning of the anxiety and the way it has developed, they are able to simply stop the thoughts themselves

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.

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.

Fear can affect our quality of life in powerful ways. It can interrupt our sleep. When anxious, one may isolates them self from others who would otherwise offer us companionship. Fear rob us of opportunities for sex or romance. When we are afraid, we are not ourselves. The primitive physiological responses of fear are related survival or are about having no hope at all. You can learn to calm yourself, so the world appears more objectively. We are actually better able to protect ourselves, when we are able to distinguish what is factually dangerous and what is safe. When we relax, we are able to see creative possibilities in our relationships and our work.

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.

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!

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

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.

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.
