Anxiety is a paradox: the harder we try not to feel anxious, the more anxious we get. Similar to chinese finger cuffs, the intuitive solution to anxiety - trying to control what we think or feel - doesn't work. I offer therapy that helps clients avoid this trap and use state of the art CBT and mindfulness tactics to help clients move through and past anxiety.

If you suffer from anxiety in any form—including panic attacks, insomnia, having a generally nervous predisposition, experiencing a kind of anxious depression, or general lifestyle stress—the good news is that these are very treatable conditions. By teaching you mindfulness and breathing techniques, as well as using other modalities and working directly with the underlying source of anxiety, I'll help you learn to self-regulate when you're feeling anxious, and teach you how to relate to your anxiety differently, allowing you to feel more natural states of ease and well-being.

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.

Would you like to feel calmer -- while experiencing more satisfaction in your life, and have closer connections with your loved ones, friends and co-workers? Psychotherapy can be your gateway to a life with more happiness and balance. I am experienced at helping you understand and utilize your strengths as a foundation to help create the life you desire. This isn’t a magical cure - walking this path may take some time, energy and focus. Yet the rewards can be great. For some, the goals are more about resolving old hurts and trauma - for others, improving relationship skills, and communication skills. In all cases, my aim is to increase your ability to create the life you want.

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.

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.

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.

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 most common conditions that result in physical ailments, disease and impairment in living. I show you how to use the whole body to both contain stress responses and to find a more solid, stable foundation with which to process anxious and stressed places. These are usually aspects of ourselves that do not feel safe or supported- so grounding in the whole body, breathing, letting the body unwind tension allows for a way to not get caught up in these stress patterns. Rather we then learn how to enter into the places of anxiety/stress- so that these parts of ourselves feel safe to experience, express and release what they have been carrying- including unresolved traumas.

Anxiety tends to feed on itself, and can hit you just when you can least handle it. It can become a vicious cycle. Talking with me about your anxiety or panic attacks may seem hard, but can actually give you some immediate relief. For that relief to last, you need to allow yourself time - both to understand what triggers you, and to practice thinking in a different way that will help you respond differently. This helps to break the vicious cycle, and begins to create a virtuous cycle so you can handle more and more situations with less anxiety, or with confidence rather than fear. I'll walk with you through this, listening, helping you take each step, giving practical suggestions.

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.
