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.

Anxiety can feel overwhelming and at times debilitating. Stress can increase this anxiety to even more unmanageable levels. Learning ways to manage stress can help reduce the anxious feelings. I can work with to learn tools and skills to help calm you and ground you when you begin to feel overwhelmed. The goal is for you to feel like you can manage the anxiety that starts rattling you and to have some tools that you can pull out to calm you down enough to be more effective in that moment. Together we can work to find ways for you to feel calmer, more grounded and more like yourself.

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.

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

Feeling anxious is never comfortable; stresses of life often bring us to that point. Having a safe and compassionate listener can be the beginning of alleviating some of the pressure that causes these disruptive emotions. Being able to talk about your struggle in a trusting space allows you to put some of the angst outside of yourself and begin to look at your anxiety more objectively - allowing you to make sense of it and temper it. When you hold all of this as your own it continues to grow and expand. I can provide you a safe space. I am direct and empathetic so we will honestly explore your "stuff." Call today. Begin to make your life more manageable. You need not do this alone.

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.

Anxiety and stress are so prevalent in today's society. I can help you gather the tools you need to successfully handle those moments when you feel overwhelmed - even if those moments seem like they are all the time. I utilize psychodynamic and/or a cognitive behavioral approach to treating anxiety and stress. I also treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder using Exposure and Response Prevention.

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.

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.

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.
