Free 30 minute zoom call - Anxiety can arise from several places - one is the mind - people can think & imagine scenarios in their minds that create anxiety, when their thoughts and imagination may not even be true. Anxiety is also common in people who did not have a safe & secure experience with caregivers as they were growing up. The brain ends up being wired in a way that reproduces anxiety. Fortunately, due to new research in the field of neuropsychology & neuroplasticity, this can be changed!

Licensed Psychotherapist

6310 San Vicente Blvd. Suite 410, Los Angeles, California 90048 | 323-692-7781

Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed. I provide a particular approach to anxiety that may not only help you to lower your anxiety threshold (leading to less anxiety and fewer panic attacks), but to identify the myriad feelings that make up your particular type of anxiety. Then, as we figure them out, understand them, and find new ways of expression, it may naturally help lower your anxiety level. We might also use certain stress management techniques that I developed when I taught stress management courses for several years.

650 Sierra Madre Villa Ave., Pasadena, California 91107 | 213-640-9182

Big or small, anxiety has a way of effecting our lives. Anxiety not only effects those who struggle to do, but also, those who are already doing so much. We can minimize it, rationalize it, and tell ourselves it's circumstantial but the truth is anxiety is the very thing that keeps you from feeling connected to the moment and those around you. In our work together, I will help you cultivate techniques, strategies and mindsets unique to you that will help you to reclaim your life, allow you to be present to the moment, and create a feeling of wholeness. If you're ready to feel less stress and live in a more meaningful way I'd love to meet you and see how I can support you in your journey.

Psychologist

321 S. Beverly Drive, Suite "L", Beverly Hills, California 90212 | (310) 772-0520

Stress or anxiety don’t always get in the way, but sometimes they do. Learn to identify the sources, recognize how they stop you, and change the impact they have on you and your life. Learn how old patterns shape your self-image, self-esteem, and expectations, and discover new ways of dealing with that. Fear doesn’t have to stop you from having what you want in life. And, sometimes it’s a valuable asset, like knowing which is the lion and which is the lamb. Psychotherapy with me helps you to sort out when to listen to the fears and when they no longer apply. You’ll also learn coping strategies that can help when you’re caught up in the fear. Your fears don’t have to control you.

Because anxiety is a unique experience from person-to-person, we start by learning about your anxiety. Through dialogue and exploration, we help you map your anxiety and how it shows up in your thinking, emotions, actions and ultimately in your relationships. Having a map as a building block may help you develop a response plan for when symptoms of anxiety begin to fester. Using a blend of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness and dialectical behavioral therapy to develop a wise-mind approach to life and reactive emotions is how we approach anxiety. From there, we explore your psychological and emotional needs to help you build insight on what to do about them.

People have different thresholds and levels of stimulation that are ideal for them. Too little and it is difficult to engage, to be interested. Too much and the mind races, has difficulty focusing, and you become anxious and exhausted. The right amount creates focus, creativity and productivity/efficiently. This can translate into your level of stress. Too little and it’s difficult to be motivated. Too much and it’s counter productive. The right amount helps you become engaged and focused. In Counseling we explore and find what you need to manage your stress & anxiety?

Los Angeles, California 90077 | 1-877-606-6161

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.

It can be extremely overwhelming trying to navigate your responsibilities at home and work along with taking care of other people. It can be stressful having to give up your responsibilities to take care of a loved one, especially when you're unable to find guidance and support.
