Stress and anxiety are often linked; stress may come from thoughts or events that make you feel frustrated, angry or nervous; in small doses, it sometimes helps you accomplish things. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, unease and worry. The source of anxiety is not always known. Individuals should seek help for stress and anxiety when it is getting in the way of their functioning and/or relationships at home, work, school or in the community. In my work with clients we address the physical aspects of stress and anxiety (racing heart, shortness of breath, sweating, trembling, dizziness), as well as the thoughts, feelings and actions that are sustaining the symptoms.

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.

My approach to anxiety and stress begins with listening to learn what stressors are affecting the client's mood and behavior and determining whether other conditions, such as depression, are a factor. I then focus on developing strategies, including cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-oriented psychotherapy to alleviate the symptoms and help clients move past their anxiety and return to functioning normally.

LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR,National Certified

I counsel patients with anxiety and stress incorporating exercise, spirituality and meditation. First we identify the source of the stress and then identify as many factors as possible to alleviate the stress. Counseling identifies all the factors that are out of the patients control.Learning to live with stress and living life on lives terms. Talking about problems, identifying positive responses and alternative solutions. Writing out solutions and writing to identify the problem. Life is meant to be happy, joyful and free.

Anxiety and stress are two things that bring many people to seek therapy. When I work with a client that wants to overcome anxiety and/or stress, I like to help him or her understand how to recognize the early signs of anxiety and stress, and help the client to identify coping mechanisms that will empower the client to overcome feelings such as being overwhelmed and/or paralyzed.

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.

I help people identify the triggers to their anxiety and develop a system to deal with stress before it deals with them! 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. Clients report less chronic pain when they are managing anxiety in healthy ways. It is possible to reduce anxiety and live life in a more vivid way, even if you situation is not optimal. I can teach you to acknowledge and release these negative thoughts, thus releasing the "trauma" that has built up in your body (stored stress and anxiety)

Anxiety and Stress are a natural occurrence in modern life. However, when a person becomes overwhelmed with the stress of daily life, managing work, family life, social activities, commuting, financial concerns, illness and a multitude of other cause it's important to address the stress and anxiety. I work with individuals on developing coping skills and solutions to problems with solution focused therapy.
