Many, if not most, of us experience symptoms of anxiety and stress at times throughout our lives. Being human in an unpredictable world leaves even the most unflappable individuals shaken by trauma, loss, and unexpected change. During therapy we discover the roots behind these symptoms, we work to understand the nature of trauma, we utilize time-tested principals that help diminish the symptoms, and we discuss, as needed, the help of other professionals along the way -- such as nutritionists, physicians, and spiritual directors.

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 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.

Residential Addiction Program

Tampa, Tampa, Florida 33633 | 813.775.2098

Anxiety disorders commonly coexist with addiction tendencies. Anxiety can severely inhibit a person's life, causing them to feel an irrational amount of panic, fear and other negative emotions in any given circumstance. Severe anxiety may influence a person to avoid leaving their house, or to become paralyzed in situations they interpret as stressful. Many people who struggle with anxiety will try to self medicate with alcohol or drugs, which ultimately makes their symptoms worse. A dual diagnosis of addiction and anxiety requires special treatment considerations; the kind that Valiant Recovery provides.

10014 N. Dale Mabry Hwy. Suite 216, Tampa, Florida 33618 | 813-416-8094

Anxiety, stress, and worry can run havoc on the mind and body. It is common for people to suffer from bouts of depression when suffering from anxiety for an extended amount of time. The mind and body can only take anxiety or stress for so long before depression hits. I provide clients with techniques and tools to identify and calm their response to the stress pattern.

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.
