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.

We live in stressful times and many people struggle with anxiety that can range from simple daily worry to debilitating fear. Identifying the triggers underlying anxiety, big or small, can help you develop strategies for dealing with the thought patterns and fixed beliefs that are preventing you from living life to the fullest. As we begin to process your anxiety together, we may find that it is caused by past trauma or events in your family history. Developing skills to cope with immediate anxiety, while slowly working through past trauma or family issues can help to decrease the experience of anxiety in daily living, as well as in your life, overall.

I provide counseling for anxiety and stress at the Narrative Couples Center. Through collaborative conversations, we discover alternatives that can replace the oppression of anxiety. Are you wanting peacefulness, more balance, less overwhelm? I look at how problems interfere with people’s hopes, and use a strength-based approach that supports resourcefulness.

Anxiety Counselor

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Pacific Palisades

Many clients present with increasing levels of stress and anxiety in their lives. Therapy becomes centered around identifying triggers for anxiety symptoms, recent stressors in their lives, and identifying symptoms. Often times, we find together that anxiety has been in their life for a long time and that old patterns of behavior has accompanied it. We explore some of those patterns to identify the triggers and find new coping skills to practice when stress arrives. I find it helpful to collaborate with the client on setting goals and working at a speed that is comfortable to each client. This provides empowerment and confidence in working toward new ways of handling the stresses of living.

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

Worried or stressed out about things? I have successfully treated anxieties of all types and phobias to make life more manageable and fulfilling. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been shown in research to have the best results when dealing with stress and anxiety. This approach that I take helps you understand that your thoughts (" I am going to fail" or "I am going to look like a fool") are connected to your feelings (anxious, stressed, or afraid) which are connected to your behaviors ( such as not going to a particular place or being stuck in an area). For a free consultation, call me and be free of stress and anxiety today

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Pacific Palisades

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 prolific and rampant in our society. So many individuals walk around feeling constantly plagued by anxiety and stress. Believe it or not, we all have a choice whether or not we are controlled by stress and anxiety. I work extensively with individuals suffering from anxiety. You do not need to live a life where anxiety is controlling you, vs. you controlling it. Through our therapy process I will help you implement skills and a way of being which will not only minimize anxiety, it will also allow you to control it.

Are you worrying about life on a daily basis? Do you constantly feel on edge, have difficulty falling or staying asleep? Together, we will work to reduce your overall, level, frequency and intensity of anxiety, as well as stabilizing your anxiety level so that you can increase your ability to function on a daily basis. We will do this by identifying what has happened or is currently happening in your life that forms the basis for your present anxiety. Sometimes, anxiety is a response to difficult, real-life stressors and other times it is a response to stressors from your past. Either way, therapy is an effective way to combat anxiety. You don't have to suffer.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

You might be longing for change that can bring some sense of peace to the anxiety and stress you carry daily but are afraid of the unpredictable and the unknown and find yourself moving aimlessly from one distraction to another. The relationship between therapist and patient has a context, a sharing of subjective experiences that cannot help but play out in unique and meaningful ways. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore and discover the context of your anxiety thereby helping you to manage it more productively.

Is anxiety, panic, or stress overload taking over your life? Is it keeping you from things you need to do or want to do? It is very common to try to avoid anxiety or panic, or lower the stress, by avoiding situations that trigger it. By avoiding anxiety triggers, your world starts becoming smaller. It may feel safer, but it starts feeling like a prison. A prison created by fear. There is hope and help. I specialize in helping anxious people become more confident and to enjoy life more. I offer effective, drug free tools and strategies, mostly based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We would work together to create a plan that works for you. Call me today to learn more.
