Licensed Psychologist

Anxiety can be debilitating, especially if you have panic attacks. It can feel like and assault on your senses and makes you want to flee to safety. I liken it to feeling as if a lion had walked into the room. Your brain tells you there is danger and you must fight or flee. For those who suffer from anxiety medication can help but there are also ways that you can learn to manage and control it. I try to help my patients to understand the universalized thoughts and feelings that feed the anxious beats and to learn techniques that will improve the quality of their lives.

Much of anxiety and stress are related to the negative messages we send ourselves. We worry about what others think of us, what may happen in the future, and how we acted in the past; just to name a few. Because much of anxiety is based in our thoughts; a large portion of the work we do in this therapy is to challenge our thinking. By challenging our negative thoughts, we can experience a more positive shift in emotions and behaviors. We will also discuss and practice mindfulness strategies as a way to work on being more present in the moment and decrease the focus on negative repetitive thinking. Relief from anxiety is possible with effective skills.

The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.

Licensed Psychotherapist

In 91106 - Nearby to La Verne.

Many individuals are surprised when I tell them that not all anxiety is necessarily negative, in fact, it was crucial to our survival for hundreds of year. We still can experience this with our fight, flight, or freeze responses when we preceive danger; however, these are often used to extreme when they are not necessary as they may have been back in the cave man days. Anxious behaviors may stem from inherited characteristics, environmental or learned behaviors, or a combination of these. The result may lead to a significant decrease in functioning for individuals and in many domains in their lives, i.e., work, school, social life; psychotherapy can make a significant positive impact.

Some stress and anxiety are normal. It helps us get things done, like starting a new job or school, moving or getting married.. It becomes a problem when we feel overwhelmed and exhibit physical and emotional symptoms. Physical symptons could include a racing heart, rapid breathing, sweating, trembling and dizzyness. Traumatic events can trigger these responses as well. This is accompanied by negative thoughts such as catastrophizing, overgeneralizing and "shoulds". By providing a safe, peaceful place and proven strategies that work, I can help you sort things out to end the self-perpetuating cycle of harmful stress and anxiwty.

My approach to the treatment of anxiety is to use the most effective intervention strategies possible. My treatment for anxiety (including panic disorder and OCD) utilizes exposure therapy, which works by helping a person confront a specific fear or memory while in a safe and supportive environment. The main goals of exposure therapy are to help my clients learn that by stopping the avoidance of what they fear, they actually become MORE comfortable and can reduce their anxiety to a substantial degree - all of which opens doors of hope and increases the potential to reach your desired goals with an improved quality of 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.

When anxiety and stress become overwhelming, it has the power to keep you from feeling like yourself. It takes away from your ability to be present in your day to day experiences, makes it difficult to enjoy your relationships, and takes your energy and time away from important things. You may not have control over stressful situations, but you can be empowered to handle them constructively and not be debilitated by anxiety. In the safety of therapy, we can explore and understand your stressors, identify constructive coping tools for you to draw on, and process through and release the burden of anxiety so that you can be free to enjoy the life you deserve.

Anxiety and stress come from a variety of sources for children and young adults. Further, the behavioral outcome of anxiety and stress varies from one individual to the next. While some may become isolated and avoid stressful situations, others can become behaviorally aggressive and aggitated. I work closely with my clients and families on identifying the underlying causes of this anxiety, and by using cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused methods my clients learn the skills to manage and resolve these stressors.
