Big or small, anxiety has a way of effecting our lives. Anxiety not only effects those who struggle to do, but also, those who are already doing so much. We can minimize it, rationalize it, and tell ourselves it's circumstantial but the truth is anxiety is the very thing that keeps you from feeling connected to the moment and those around you. In our work together, I will help you cultivate techniques, strategies and mindsets unique to you that will help you to reclaim your life, allow you to be present to the moment, and create a feeling of wholeness. If you're ready to feel less stress and live in a more meaningful way I'd love to meet you and see how I can support you in your journey.

In anxiety and stress treatment and counseling, therapists often employ a holistic approach, tailoring techniques to individual needs. Clients benefit from a safe, non-judgmental space to explore underlying causes of anxiety and stress. Therapists may utilize cognitive-behavioral techniques to reframe negative thought patterns, relaxation exercises to manage physical symptoms, and mindfulness practices to increase present-moment awareness. Through therapy, clients gain coping skills, improved self-awareness, and a sense of empowerment, enabling them to navigate life's challenges with greater resilience and confidence.

Life has a way of making us feel overwhelmed and out of control at times. Stress and anxiety can build up and consume your thoughts and feelings. I believe that by exploring unmet needs from the past, people can develop healthier relationships today. By working through painful losses and wounds, people can release unhelpful beliefs about themselves and others in order to live more fully in the present and with hope for the future. We are hurt in relationships; we are also healed in relationship, and the therapeutic relationship can be a useful resource. If you are ready to take the next step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they dont treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people dont 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

The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.

We all have stress and anxiety; the question is how we deal with them. Past traumatic experiences may heighten levels of stress and anxiety as well. Therapy which kindly and fearlessly helps pay attention to leftover emotion that may not have been attended to can help relieve suffering, isolation, fear and anger. A therapist may provide the safest place clients have ever had within which to be heard, seen and valued.

Many individuals are surprised when I tell them that not all anxiety is necessarily negative, in fact, it was crucial to our survival for hundreds of year. We still can experience this with our fight, flight, or freeze responses when we preceive danger; however, these are often used to extreme when they are not necessary as they may have been back in the cave man days. Anxious behaviors may stem from inherited characteristics, environmental or learned behaviors, or a combination of these. The result may lead to a significant decrease in functioning for individuals and in many domains in their lives, i.e., work, school, social life; psychotherapy can make a significant positive impact.
