Anxiety and stress seem to the two factors that are running most people's lives. Between, work, performances, home, family, friends, returning phone calls and emails and all the additional pressures of life, stress and anxiety can simply become overwhelming. Counseling and psychotherapy has an outstanding track record for helping people cope with their anxieties and stressors in life. The therapeutic relationship established by a professional counselor often substantially decreases and relieves the wave of anxiety that can paralyze anyone. Counseling along with if needed medical intervention will under most circumstance return needed control, comfort and success.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

441 South Beverly Drive # 2, Beverly Hills, California

The benefits of therapy for people who suffer from anxiety are the reduction of symptoms, and the development of greater well-being. Anxiety is a kind of friction among the moving parts of the self, an internal conflict that is distracting, depleting, and highly unpleasant. It is closely linked to stress, to boredom, and to fear of sadness. Rather than struggling, we can collaborate to turn toward the source of the anxiety and try to resolve it at the roots.

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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 Counselor

Mary Kay Cocharo, LMFT, CIRT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

11340 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, California

My goal is to help clients learn a mind/body connection that can help them understand their feelings of anxiety and stress as well as get control over it. In addition to helping individuals explore their thoughts and feelings which are at the root of anxiety, I also teach breathing exercises and mindful awareness. In this way, anxiety and emotional reactivity is calmed, freeing the individual's creativity and making relationships easier to find and negotiate.

Anxiety Counselor

Sandra Dupont, MA, MS, MFT

Counseling, Coaching & Mentoring for Millennials

1247 7th Street, Suite 300, Santa Monica, California

It takes an act of courage for sensitive young adults to learn to trust and believe in themselves. It takes self-awareness for them to learn to speak their truth. I help sensitive young adults to develop the self-love necessary to fully accept themselves. Ultimately, the key to living a peaceful life lies in knowing who you are and what you feel. I help young people stand strong in what is true for them. I help my clients learn to not waste their time looking to others for approval. Through our work together, I help young people to discover their authentic self-expression and embark on the journey of the dream for their life.

Anxiety Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

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 Counselor

Psychotherapist, Marriage Counselor, Professional Life Coach

There is an old saying that "stress kills". You cannot function fully when stressed and you must do something about it. There are two types of anxiety. One is a normal reaction to a stressful event. The other is an abnormal reaction which can continue to plague you throughout your life. Anxiety can become overwhelming and debilitating. In time, your anxiety may generalize where you may experience anxious feelings and not even know why. Together we can help you to rid the anxiety from your life. To deal with anxiety you must confront it as the symptoms associated with it will only subside by looking at the source of the anxiety and being proactive in tackling the stress you feel.
