Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidenced based therapeutic approach that has been shown to help people be relieved of stress and anxiety. It is our beliefs and thoughts creating these negative emotions. This is good news! This means that we can work together to identify, address and restructure the very beliefs and thoughts that are causing such distress in your life. Call me today if you are looking for a solution provided in a caring, supportive and judgement free environment.

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 and stress are at the heart of nearly all emotional difficulties in one form or another. Learning new ways of coping with these realities of life can lead to lifelong growth and renewed sense of purpose. There is a powerful saying: "Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional". My approach is different, in that I don't seek to eliminate what is normal and typical for all of us (stress, anxiety, fear, pain), but rather change how we interact with these experiences. There are powerful tools that successful, happy people have known for generations and you can learn these effective strategies too.

Anxiety is that feeling that you give yourself when you fear that something bad is going to happen. Our bodies made chemicals such as adrenalin to give us strength during a short-time emergency. However, when people respond to long-time, modern day problems (traffic, unhappy job, bills etc) with this same chemical response as a lion attack, adrenalin builds up in our bodies and isn’t released through physical action (running away or fighting). This can lead to increased stress, high blood pressure, anger, anxiety and panic. Fortunately, we can help you can learn techniques to help you respond to stress in healthy ways.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Anxiety, stress, panic, phobias, and obsessions are personal challenges that respond well to cognitive behavior therapy, stress inoculation training, and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. Regardless of the strategy, the focus is to desensitize the issue causing the disturbance. Relaxation training is part of that process. Accelerated Resolution Therapy can reduce corresponding physiological symptoms and desensitize clients to the provoking stimuli. Thereafter, it is often helpful to build skills to help manage future stressful situations.

Anxiety and stress therapy with me is indeed a unique experience. Several assessment tools are used including an accountability chart which guides healthy life balance. Other effective forms of treatment include anxiety management, cognitive therapy and exposure therapy. With anxiety management I teach patients skills that will help them cope. Skills taught include relaxation training, breathing retraining, positive thinking, assertiveness training and thought stopping. Cognitive therapy helps clients change irrational beliefs that interfere with psychological functioning and create emotional disturbances. With Exposure therapy I encourage clients to confront stress/anxiety symptom triggers.
