Anxiety Counselor

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

Excessive anxiety & worry interferes with relationships, sleeping patterns, eating habits, work, school, and all other areas of life, including your health. Medications are helpful, and sometimes lifesaving for those paralyzed by anxiety & panic. However useful psychotropic medications may be at symptom reduction, they fail to address the emotional & psychological causes of anxiety, which more often than not, play a powerful role in the formation and maintenance of anxiety. My approach is to help you to focus internally, so that you can begin to understand, unravel, and heal the source of the anxiety. Whatever the cause, anxiety can be reduced, if not resolved completely, with therapy.

When you have a stress reaction (racing heart, racing thoughts, quick breathing, shaking, inability to think clearly, etc) it actually is due to a chemical reaction starting in your brain. It often happens immediately because your brain and body have adapted over millennia to ensure your safety. The fight/flight response is great when necessary, but not so great when a person is not really in danger. I help people understand this reaction and decrease the symptoms using several techniques such as EMDR and self-regulation skills.

Tom Petit, Ph.D., LMHC, CCMHC, CAP

Licensed Mental Health Counselors / Board Certified Coaches

Anxiety seems to have a life of its own. Fear of having anxiety brings more anxiety, even panic. What does one do when anxiety, stress and panic hit? Seems everything that is done makes it worse. Anxiety, stress, panic attacks, seem to come out of nowhere & present with a pressure/demand to “do something” to make them stop or go away. Is it all chemical imbalance…fear from the past or present-a new situation…a fear of the future & what can or might happen...all of the above? I help my clients with understanding of their lives, the roots of their personal anxiety & struggle with it, by providing a safe place and skills that provide “breathing room” to break free from the grips of anxiety.

Anxiety and stress can be debilitating; however, there are ways to keep both emotions in check. I will help you learn skills which include but are not limited to identifying triggers, identifying your body’s response and/or reaction to a stressor or perceived threat, controlled breathing, identifying relaxing activities, staying present and thought stopping in which you assess 1) whether there is reason for alarm, 2) evidence that supports the reason, and 3) whether the reaction is warranted or not.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.
