Anxiety in my experience works similarly to depression. If depression is caused by unexpressed feelings, anxiety is caused by unexpressed fear. It may be a therapist cliche to talk about creating safety and trust, but this is especially true of helping to heal anxiety. It really is about helping the client feel safe to express their fears and worries and to learn to feel safe to have the full range of our emotional expression.

In the world we live in today, anxiety and stress is rampant and it can be difficult to figure out how to sort through our feelings and still be productive and content individuals. In therapy, I focus on slowing down rapid thinking that is often rooted in anxiety and stress. I encourage the use of calming behavioral techniques in conjunction with altering negative and anxiety provoking thoughts to alleviate symptoms.

Anxiety and stress are two of the most common reasons people seek therapy. Sharing our feelings with family or friends can leave us feeling like a burden to the ones we love. When exercise or a vacation are not enough, therapy can help you learn how to minimize the amount of anxiety and stress in your life. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy has been shown to be an effective tool in the treatment of both everyday anxiety and stress, and the anxiety and stress that result from a traumatic event or crisis. Clients can learn to identify triggers and develop a "toolbox" of ideas to help them manage the often overwhelming feelings that can affect us everyday.

Anxiety can range from mild stress that is manageable to overwhelming stress that turns into traumatic activation. Through our somatic and relational therapies, you can feel whole again. Together, we look for what strengths and abilities you have that can be built on. Somatic resources generate an awareness of the sensations in the body that feel pleasant and grounding for the client and help them mediate the debilitating symptoms of trauma. Often clients don’t recognize the symptoms of trauma and are dealing with anxiety, fear and depression on their own. Many trauma clients do not seek therapeutic assistance right away, either because they don’t take the traumatic experience seriously or they think that “time will heal” or because of shame and...(view profile to read more)

Fear can affect our quality of life in powerful ways. It can interrupt our sleep. When anxious, one may isolates them self from others who would otherwise offer us companionship. Fear rob us of opportunities for sex or romance. When we are afraid, we are not ourselves. The primitive physiological responses of fear are related survival or are about having no hope at all. You can learn to calm yourself, so the world appears more objectively. We are actually better able to protect ourselves, when we are able to distinguish what is factually dangerous and what is safe. When we relax, we are able to see creative possibilities in our relationships and our work.

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.

Who doesn't experience anxiety and stress in this life? We all do. In some cases stress comes from the ongoing challenges we encounter in daily life. Exercise, good diet and relaxation through doing fun things to doing a stillness practice re-centers us. But that isn't true where trauma or ingrained negative thinking has control in our life. But there are tools and processes that can restore us to a more peaceful normal. Using a blend of EMDR and energy psychology tools we can bring your anxiety symptoms down from totally controlling your life to getting you back to living your life again. Plus you can learn the process for clearing your stress and anxiety yourself.

Anxiety and stress are obviously two of the most common therapeutic issues we deal with in this modern world. In my work with clients who are suffering from anxiety and stress, I focus on helping them rebalance or reprioritize the areas of their lives so they can feel in charge again.

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.

Anxiety is a debilitating disorder that deprives people of their happiness and sense of well-being. I work with children and adults to help alleviate their suffering. Together we explore their anxiety "triggers" e.g. what brings on their anxiety, and work with question those assumptions. Next I help my clients learn how to use tools to combat the thoughts that can paralyze and torment them and bring their negative thoughts back under their control, helping them to feel happy and confident once more.

In addition to being a licensed Marriage Family Therapist, I am also a ceritified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner as developed by Dr. Peter Levine, and a certified Structural Integration Practitioner as developed by Dr. Ida Rolf. Using these body-based technologies in what we call a "bottom up" approach to anxiety and stress is a lot more effective than the "top down" approach of traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. That's because anxiety and stress are artifacts of the reptillian brain and limbic system not the neocortex where CBT works.

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.

Trying to balance work commitments and family can often cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. I can help you find better ways of coping with life's stressors while helping you create balance for your specific needs. Sometimes anxiety seems to appear out of nowhere and that could very confusing and isolating. For deeper rooted causes of anxiety, I use Cognitive-Bahavioral-Therapy and EMDR. CBT helps you understand the thought processes that may be causing your anxiety. EMDR helps us explore some past traumas that maybe getting triggering anxiety and then work to desensitize the trauma for more relief from the symptoms.

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.

Is the weight of the world on your shoulders? Is it difficult to get up in the morning and face the day, even though it was difficult to fall asleep and turn off your mind the night before? Are your relationships suffering because you feel stressed and worried most of the time? A little anxiety can be a positive push toward action, but too much anxiety and stress are unhealthy and unhelpful.
