Like most issues that people experience today, anxiety and stress can be caused by un-resolved trauma in one's past. Trauma can leave a wound when it has not been processed and resolved. This wound, when not delt with, can lead to other issues including anxiety and stress. An effective way to treat anxiety and stress is to look at and deal with unresolved trauma in the individuals past and present. An effective way to deal with trauma is through the technique called EMDR. I am trained through the EMDR Institute and have helped individuals heal the wounds left by their trauma experiences. When this occurs, the stress and anxiety can subside and the individual feels better.

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 can act as a major roadblock in one's life. It can hinder our progress towards goals, keep us from new experiences, and put up walls in our relationships. We often don't realize, however,, that a certain level of stress is necessary and keeps us productive and motivated. Learning what healthy, optimum stress levels are for you and how to successfully move stress levels up and down to this level is crucial. Discard unsafe environments and unsafe people. Bring anxiety to a tolerable level and utilize it's energy towards positive action. Positive action builds confidence. Confidence and safe environment/people in one's life lowers unhealthy high levels of anxiety and stress.

You don't have to be anxious anymore! The biggest secret to being anxiety free, lies in understanding what anxiety really is. It is a generalized "fear" with no object. This means that the anxious person honestly answers the question, "What are you afraid of?" with "I don't know." When you come to therapy with me, I will teach how to answer the most important question that you can ask yourself, "What is behind the anxiety?" When you pay attention to the bodily sensations that exist "behind" your anxiety, the change process begins. In time, with successful treatment, you will experience a sense of peace. Calm confidence can become your usual or normal experience as the anxiety fades.

I provide personalized, accessible, and effective evidence-based psychotherapy to clients struggling to cope with anxiety and stress. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with the right therapist has been found to be effective in relieving a variety of symptoms of anxiety, including excessive worry, nervousness, restlessness, sleep difficulty, muscle tension, and more. Although CBT cannot erase stress from happening, when tailored to your unique needs and goals, it can improve confidence in your ability to cope with a wide range of stressors as they come about.

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.

We hold our anxiety and stress in our body. We feel tension, gut problems, hot flashes, disrupted sleep and more. I work with anxiety and stress by helping individuals learn and develop tools to re-regulate their nervous system. When we have a coherent and fluid nervous system, we can do difficult things without feeling paralyzed by overwhelming fear.

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.
