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.

One source of Anxiety is a life-style full of pressure and stress when you may not be sure why you are so driven but you are moving too fast to slow down and find out what you are really feeling. Another, deeper source of Anxiety is an internal conflict in which one aspect of you is pushing in a certain direction and another aspect is either resisting or pulling in another direction. A third source of anxiety is a history of serious life difficulties when you may have been abused, ignored, or mistreated in some way. All of these kinds of anxiety can be helped if we can sit together and understand these anxieties in more depth. and find new and more effective coping mechanisms

When we feel anxious, overwhelmed or stressed we're often experiancing fear; fear of a future outcome that is not aligned with our desires or our sense of safety. When we dwell on the future (or past) we're not available for the present, where creativity, spontaneity and joy reside. Chronic stress and anxiety also takes a toll on our health, and can result in behaviors ranging from anger, aggression and defensiveness to withdrawal and depression, which in turn negatively impact our relationships and overall wellbeing. I will guide you in forming a sense grounding, support and of safety in your own skin, quieting the chronic worry or fear, and replacing it with more presence, calm and ease.

Anxiety and Stress are part of the human condition. Many of us don't realize how much of our brain's real estate anxiety and stress take up - robbing us of being able to be present for what is in front of us instead of reacting to some fear or past trauma. I can help you build your inner resilience and recognition of when you are being driven by anxiety/stress so that you can find your way out of a historic reaction and into a more current narrative.

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!

There is an almost infinite list of causes for anxiety and stress, probably a few more if you live in a metropolitan area. Maybe your anxiety is decades old from trauma, family of origin, or chemically related. Perhaps it's situational and can be attributed to a recently suffered trauma, is work related, or relationship related. When you are stressed out or anxious, your brain doesn't function optimally. Instead, it functions in crisis mode and impairs your decision making ability and leaves you feeling too drained for the rest of your life. I will help you to regain your control by giving you concrete strategies and tools to manage them.

Recent studies show that moderate stress can actually make us more productive and successful. But when stress and anxiety become too much to handle, they can make life miserable. I use mindfulness-based therapy to help you increase your own innate ability to decrease anxiety and keep stress manageable. If your symptoms are related to past experiences such as painful or difficult childhood experiences, abuse or trauma, I offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR therapy is a highly effective for relieving symptoms of PTSD and improving performance. Come experience it for yourself!

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.

It can feel scary and deeply lonesome to struggle with anxiety stress. I work with clients navigating acute symptoms of anxiety including negative self-talk, cyclical and catastrophic thought patterns, repetitive behaviors, loss of sleep, and difficulty with time management. When appropriate, I employ concrete CBT tools to aid in some immediate relief in tandem with traditional and interpersonal talk therapy to explore the root of the anxiety and provide long-term relief. My goal is to help individuals build a "tool box" of anxiety and stress management tools they can carry with them throughout their lives.

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.

Anxiety and stress are felt when life overwhelms the capacity to experience. When events are too much to bear, too much to make sense of, or tolerate, we feel stress or anxiety. If unable to be with challenging life events we are left in this anxious state, held hostage by what cannot be digested or made sense of. I help people decrease stress and anxiety by increasing their ability to more fully inhabit themselves and be with their own experiences so that events of the past and present can be lived in and more comfortably felt. A sense of self, self-confidence, capacity, and control is restored.
