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.

I can teach you specific tools to help with anxiety and stress reduction on the physical level. We may also explore the deeper causes of anxiety, your history, and how to find ground in the midst of uncertainty. It is easy to become anxious when our minds are consumed with thoughts of the past or future speculations. By guiding awareness, I will help you to return to the present moment even as we talk, to feel your body and senses in the here and now. Building your capacity to be aware in the present moment greatly reduces anxiety.

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.

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.

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.

I provide a solution-oriented and healing environment for people who are suffering from the stress of living a "real" life.

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!

I enjoy helping clients with anxiety and/or stress issues. First, we want to rule out any physical causes, so it is important to have a recent medical exam. Always remember, though, anxiety and stress are natural and in many ways beneficial feelings. They keep us motivated and productive! However, too much of a good thing is not good by any means. That's where I come in with my tools to reduce stress and/or anxiety.

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 take away your personal power at the most important moments and start to have too much control over your behavior. Over time, chronic stress can break down a healthy view of yourself. Starting from our first session, I will support your understanding of anxiety, its biological effects, and its impact on your relationships. I will support you to build on developing insight and develop habits that support anxiety and stress reduction. At the end of therapy, you will have a clear plan for sustained control over anxiety and chronic stress. I'm reachable through phone for a free 20-minute consultation to further discuss your needs and answer any questions about my therapy approach.

Anxiety can arise from several places - one is the mind - people can think & imagine scenarios in their minds that create anxiety, when their thoughts and imagination may not even be true. Anxiety is also common in people who did not have a safe & secure experience with caregivers as they were growing up. The brain ends up being wired in a way that reproduces anxiety. Fortunately, due to new research in the field of neuropsychology & neuroplasticity, this can be changed!

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.

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?

A little anxiety can be a positive push toward action, but too much anxiety and stress are unhealthy and unhelpful.

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.

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.

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.
