Anxiety can be difficult to manage, but you do not have to do it alone. Life's stresses can bring about anxious feelings which can be confusing. My role as a therapist is to help you navigate through anxiety and stress, and finding healthy ways to cope and get through difficult times.

Anxiety is a normal emotion that generates a lot of energy even in stressful situations. Uncontrolled anxiety is harmful and often counterproductive. Understanding the specific triggers of your anxiety will keep them from tipping you over the edge. Applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will help you learn different ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to anxiety-producing and stressful situations. Developing the ability to remain in the present will help you learn how to control and limit the negative effects of anxiety in your life to promote your well-being.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Anxiety is one of the most common issues people deal with in the U.S. Anxiety can be mild, presenting as a lot of worrying, or it can be as severe as causing panic attacks. Either way, it can impact your daily life, your sleep, and relationships. Counseling has been shown to be effective in helping people reduce both the cognitive (worry thoughts) and physical symptoms of anxiety. Using cognitive behavioral therapy, I can assist you in learning the necessary skills that you can implement on your own to reduce your anxiety and begin enjoying life again. To schedule an appointment with Akeem call TR Counseling & Wellness at 203-819-7650.

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.

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.

People often use the terms "anxiety" and "stress" interchangeably. Though a certain level of anxiety is a normal, healthy and an adaptive response to our environment, many therapists consider anxiety as an internal compass that indicates areas of possible self growth. For others, living with heightened anxiety and stress on a daily basis can be exhausting and potentially crippling. If you feel your anxiety is getting the best of you and has become a daily burden, then let's talk! Like Depression, there are various treatments models for anxiety that can be extremely effective in giving you back you a sense of control over your life again.

What would your life be like if you weren't continually activated in negative ways by stress? We will work together to make small steps toward change.

A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.
