When stress and anxiety get out of control, life can become agony. We can become irritable, irrational and lack the focus we need to enjoy our life. I help you develop better ways to cope with the stresses in your life and to make use of anxiety in order to improve your day to day situation and life. Not all anxiety is bad. But when it leads to panic, loss of sleep, and physical problems, there needs to be intervention.

Anxiety, panic, and phobia treatment are OCAC's sweet spot. This is where we do 95% of our work. The other 5% is in related disorders. If you find your thoughts controlling you or find yourself unable to step away from what you know are irrational thoughts, there are solutions. Many patients hear “Just relax" from friends and family, and while momentary exercises like breathing or meditation may help some, they really only subside surface symptoms of underlying cognitions that really need to be addressed. The inability to “just relax” will often exacerbate anxiety further, and there is a reason. If your needs are beyond common stress management, our average treatment is 14 weeks.

I have been working with anxiety and stress for many years and utilize somatic experiencing therapy in this work. Many of the symptoms of anxiety and stress are experienced in the body and it is important to incorporate these bodily experiences into the therapy process. Somatic experiencing helps the body to expand its tolerance of unpleasant anxiety sensations and increases its ability to experience positive emotional and physical states. This combined with traditional talk therapy is very effective for treating anxiety and stress.

A little bit of anxiety and stress can be helpful and even enjoyable. If that weren't true, we wouldn't ride roller coasters, or push through to meet that deadline! But too much anxiety or stress can be harmful, both to relationships and bodies. Therapy cannot necessarily remove the sources of stress or anxiety in your life, but it can help you respond to them differently. You will learn that your perception of events is what dictates your response. As you learn to perceive things as less-threatening, you will feel calmer. This calmer response will result in better health, both physically and mentally.

How does anxiety and stress play out in your life? It is a vital aspect of our lives, important at very specific times. Yet when anxiety is the ruler and someone is helpless it becomes a life limiting function. Anxiety might also be an avenue to avoid more intense emotional feelings and thoughts. A valuable goal might be to respect and manage one's anxiety and stress in order to live a more free and productive life.

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

Anxiety and stress seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

Babies are born with a drive to stay close to a caregiver. This human survival instinct persists into adulthood as the drive to form a secure bond with a partner. No matter how old we are, emotional connection still feels like safety, while isolation feels like danger. It makes sense then that if you don’t feel securely connected to another person, you will be more vulnerable to anxiety. Yet often the anxiety itself makes it difficult for you to form the secure connection you need so much. Emotionally Focused Therapy can help you break this cycle and form secure bonds that serve as both a safe haven when you need support, and a secure base from which you can confidently go out into the 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.

Anxiety and stress are inevitable in any walk of life. We experience both as a response to situation in which we do not know the outcome or that we don't have the adaptive coping skills to abate the negative feelings and emotions. Therapy teaches individuals about what triggering events cause anxiety and stress, how to reframe it into a positive, and what self-regulation techniques one can use to calm down and navigate through the situation productively.
