If you are struggling with feelings of anxiety or depression a wonderful tool is to learn about Mindfulness Meditation. Once you learn the simple steps, you can practice a little as five or ten minutes daily and see the results immediately. Mindfulness Meditation is easy to learn, has no side effects and is very cost effective. You can use it as a tool for stress management or for deepening your spiritual growth and practice. There is no right or wrong way. You take what works for you and apply it to your life.

Recent studies show that moderate stress can actually make us more productive and successful. But when stress and anxiety become too much to handle, they can make life miserable. I use mindfulness-based therapy to help you increase your own innate ability to decrease anxiety and keep stress manageable. If your symptoms are related to past experiences such as painful or difficult childhood experiences, abuse or trauma, I offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR therapy is a highly effective for relieving symptoms of PTSD and improving performance. Come experience it for yourself!

Anxiety and stress can be debilitating at times. Having a safe place to talk about your stress and learning safe ways to cope is a place to start. Sometimes stress is in relation to family, work, friends, relationships that we long to have work well. We can look at these areas and develop better ways of coping and communicating so that relationships are a source of security and comfort.

Anxiety and stress are pervasive in our society. Sometimes it is clear what is making us anxious or fearful and sometimes it may be harder to understand or manage. Together we will work together to slow things down, look inside and explore what experiences, patterns, thoughts or feelings may be driving how you experience stress. This practice will train your brain and body to work together more harmoniously, giving you freedom to feel more in control of your mind, body and mood.

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.

Your stress may be triggered by job loss, illness, relationships or by "positive" stressors like a new job or a baby. I provide a solution-oriented and healing environment for people who are suffering from the stress of living a "real" life. I provide a place to change the way you talk to yourself so you will stop beating yourself up and start predicting and creating positive results in your, or your family's, future. We will join together to increase your ability to cope with stress and appreciate your strengths as a human being. You can increase your tolerance for making important changes, learn to accept uncertainty, and cope with the things in life that can't be changed.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 94583 - Nearby to Redwood City.

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.

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.

In anxiety treatment sessions with me, you will learn to identify, feel, and let go of fear so that you can live more fully in the present. By better understanding your own unique anxiety process, you will feel more in control of the experience of this emotion. You will also be able to get through tense feelings more quickly. I will teach you valuable relaxation, stress management, and relapse prevention skills so that you can stay calmer in triggering situations even after completing therapy. You will enjoy the freedom of living more peacefully as well as feeling more confident in previously uncomfortable situations. Call me with any questions or to schedule an initial appointment.

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.

Counseling for Anxiety & Stress involves a combination of addressing the external, situational stressors and the client's internal responses to those stressors. I work with my clients to determine where they have control and how they can better exercise that control to reduce anxious feelings, and how to more effectively handle those situations in their lives that are beyond their direct control. I teach clients new stress management skills, practice creating and maintaining healthier boundaries in stressful relationships, and provide new ways of thinking about circumstances to reduce anxiety.

Anxiety and Stress are part of the human condition. Many of us don't realize how much of our brain's real estate anxiety and stress take up - robbing us of being able to be present for what is in front of us instead of reacting to some fear or past trauma. I can help you build your inner resilience and recognition of when you are being driven by anxiety/stress so that you can find your way out of a historic reaction and into a more current narrative.

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.

Anxiety is an internal alarm system that gives us information about our internal state as well as possible danger in the external world. Often, anxiety is a signal of deeper, more intense emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear. It can also be a consequence of not living authentically. Once these deeper feelings are identified and expressed, they can be readily released. For example, when we say "Yes" when we really mean "No," we will often experience anxiety. In this case, the anxiety is providing us with a warning that we are not being honest (living authentically) with ourself and/or another. Therapy is the perfect place to explore this common emotion.

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.

Much of anxiety and stress are related to the negative messages we send ourselves. We worry about what others think of us, what may happen in the future, and how we acted in the past; just to name a few. Because much of anxiety is based in our thoughts; a large portion of the work we do in this therapy is to challenge our thinking. By challenging our negative thoughts, we can experience a more positive shift in emotions and behaviors. We will also discuss and practice mindfulness strategies as a way to work on being more present in the moment and decrease the focus on negative repetitive thinking. Relief from anxiety is possible with effective skills.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

We all struggle with anxiety and stress. It's normal and human. But sometimes the anxiety and stress start to feel like they are taking over. As we work together, I want to help you first create a base of confidence and belief in yourself and your right to be able to share who you are with the world. As we work on that, we also build coping skills both on mindfulness to manage your anxiety and stress and on communication so that you can share who you are with confidence. I look forward to working with you to build a life that feels settled and grounded and accepting.

Anxiety, stress, and fear can affect our quality of life in powerful ways. They can interrupt our sleep, cause us to isolate from others who would otherwise offer us companionship, and they rob us of intimacy, peace of mind, and joy. When we're anxious or afraid, we are not ourselves. Yet, you can learn to calm yourself, distinguish what is factually dangerous and what is safe, and relax and see creative possibilities in your work and relationships. And the online anxiety counseling and stress management services I offer can help! Please feel free to visit my website for more information or contact me today to schedule a consultation... I look forward to helping you move forward again!
