Because anxiety is a unique experience from person-to-person, we start by learning about your anxiety. Through dialogue and exploration, we help you map your anxiety and how it shows up in your thinking, emotions, actions and ultimately in your relationships. Having a map as a building block may help you develop a response plan for when symptoms of anxiety begin to fester. Using a blend of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness and dialectical behavioral therapy to develop a wise-mind approach to life and reactive emotions is how we approach anxiety. From there, we explore your psychological and emotional needs to help you build insight on what to do about them.

Anxiety is an energy sucking beast. It is distracting, demanding, and discouraging. While fear is helpful to our existence, anxiety is anything but helpful. Treating anxiety can sometimes look like surgery-removing the trigger for it and allowing for your mind and body to heal. I’m here to support you in finding what best works for you in managing anxiety and finding healing.

I begin by understanding how you experience anxiety/stress because how you experience them is unique for you. Then we begin to increase your tolerance for how you experience anxious/stressful thoughts, feelings, memories, and/or situations. This is necessary so the anxiety/stress stops being an overwhelming experience that interferes and gets in the way of your life. It's crucial to be able to become more comfortable when you experience anxiety/stress because they're a part life. The problem is the distressing and limiting to debilitating effect they have on you. As you learn to be able to do this, you will begin to experience more peacefulness, calm, hope, self-confidence and self-esteem.

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 like an evil and corrosive thread that work their way through every aspect of a life. It can rob the joy that can make life worth living. I know from both personal and professional experience how anxiety and stress can take the joy out of life and also how to overcome these issues and put them in your past. With the aid of tools like EMDR CBT and guided visualizations I can help you overcome this issue and heal from the issues that drive it. Additionally, I can provide tools, coping skills, and other resources to help you manage this particular issue, and experience increased relief from these symptoms with each session.

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.

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.

Anxiety can be difficult for some to identify and sometimes it's hard to distinguish anxiety from depression. Anxiety and depression can be so closely knit that teasing them apart can be the first step towards generating understanding and emotional change. I will work collaboratively with you to understand what your personal and unique experience is with your anxiety. We will explore your history and make links between your past and present to help increase awareness and develop new ways of coping with your anxiety. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative and I will work hard to help you better understand and manage your anxiety.

Anxiety feeds on the demand for certainty and comfort, and during these incredibly crazy times, we find these two staples to be in short supply! No wonder you are feeling stressed and anxious right now. The key to working with your anxiety is to befriend it - as anxiety-provoking as that may sound - because having a relationship with anxiety will actually help you to understand what it needs and how to soothe it when uncertainty and discomfort are the prevailing themes of our time. I can help you to do the scary but courageous thing - to hold it and listen to it, drawing it in and providing it with the safety, warmth and welcome it has been longing for!
