Licensed marriage and family therapist (#17142)

In 93065 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

Many of my clients come in suffering from anxiety and stress. I have a wide range of tools to help with these symptoms. First we try to determine the immediate causes of stress and anxiety, and try to remove or lessen them if possible. Then we try to make any lifestyle changes that we can. Next we implement anxiety management tools, including relaxation training, breathing techniques, mindfulness, and perhaps hypnotherapy if appropriate. Most clients experience at least some relief very quickly, and relief of most if not all symptoms with time and practice of the skills we work on. Give a call, and together we'll see what we can do for your stress and anxiety.

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.

California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91103 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

At its core, anxiety and stress is fear. A stressed or anxious person might not think of it as the feeling of fear, but fear is what drives a person to worry and tense up. My clients have frequently told me how they cannot help it, that life just piles heavy responsibilities and problems onto their shoulders. This is true, that life hands us unthinkable challenges. That is exactly why you cannot afford to let anxiety and fear take over your mind--fear and worry cannot solve a single thing, but give you emotional suffering. I know how to help you better manage your stress and anxiety. Therapy does not take your problem away, but it helps you gain control over your stress and anxiety.

Beverly Scott LMFT

In 90277 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

I handle anxiety and stress in many ways but a few ways are through TRAUMA counseling, I can use EMDR which is a way to handle almost any trauma, Brain Spotting, or Havening Touch. All these methods are gentle and can be used on children as well. I also love the 12 step models for using good boundaries and just sometimes learning how to say NO. I was trained by Pia Melody, a master in teaching her CoDependence method. I have also used Hypnosis in the past and can easily use Visualization for my clients. I always give homework for my clients to continue the work at home. Many clients don't know that after they leave my office their therapy keeps on working and may manifest in change!

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.

My primary area of expertise is the treatment of Anxiety Disorders. There are different anxiety disorders such as Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Specific Phobia, PTSD and more.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 91302 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

Anxiety is an emotion about expectations, perfectionism and looking to the future. We hold anxiety in our bodies; we develop anxious behaviors and often disorders develop which involve panic. We can get caught up in the beliefs driven by society of pursuing happiness externally. Anxiety comes in many forms manifested from the conditioned belief of “not being good enough and seeking that place, the place of outer validation and acceptance.” Sometimes our beliefs are only habits and we think without them we would not know how to be in the world. To let go of these old beliefs would be frightening. Our first step is self-compassion. Compassion reminds us that we do belong, as surely as we have been lost in obtaining approval from others rather than...(view profile to read more)
