My approach to anxiety is holistic. Anxiety can have many sources. I have found it helpful to examine both historical issues as well as various aspects of the client’s current life. These include family of origin issues, trauma related issues, current relationships, employment issues, beliefs about yourself and the world, as well as environmental , nutritional and spiritual factors. I use a variety of techniques including conventional talk therapy based upon multiple theoretical orientations, Cognitive Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), as well as other mind-body techniques. Clients who have worked with me on their anxiety, have reported that they not only feel le

Stress affects all of us. There is good stress ("eustress"), and bad stress ("distress"). Stress cannot be avoided in all areas of our lives, so we have to learn healthy ways of managing it. Psychotherapy can help people to learn positive, healthy coping skills for managing stress. Anxiety is a response to a perceived threat, whether that threat be a physical threat, an emotional threat, or even something like a deadline at work. Sometimes we know the source of anxiety, and sometimes we need someone to help us locate the source. Either way, there are many effective therapies to help people to cope with or eliminate anxiety.

Anxiety is fear. We are prone to feel fear as a survival instinct. It's a good idea to feel fear when confronted with a wolf in the woods. It helps to get our feet moving. But feeling like there is a wolf bearing down on us when there is no wolf can lead to some problems. The least of these problems is discomfort, but anxiety can be crippling, making it agonizing to leave the house. Anxiety leads to many physical problems, but in general leaves a person feeling miserable. It doesn't have to be this way. There are many different ways to approach helping a person diminish their symptoms of anxiety and have a more expansive, fear-free life. I happen to know some of these ways.

Anxiety and Stress are very common today. We live in a high stimulation environment. I am experienced working with issues such as work-related stress, personal stress and trauma. Understanding how to reduce your stress begins with taking the time to explore. I can help. Anxiety has to do with how we process external stimulation and/or our concerns for our future needs and/or biochemical imbalances that we may have. First, we determine where your anxiety is coming from and go from there. I approach both the short term and long term needs you may require. Therapy sessions can be a first step to relieve your anxiety and stress and give you the relief you seek!

Druid Chase Office Park, 2801 Buford Highway NE, Suite 540 (N.Druid Hills, Lenox Rd, 85, 400), Atlanta, Georgia 30329 | 770-310-9305

As a therapist, I know that positive thinking alone and relaxation breathing alone will not resolve your anxiety. I have helped clients with generalized anxiety, social anxiety, presentation anxiety, interview anxiety, and anxiety related to accidents or traumatic events. "Kalpana helped me tremendously to get through a difficult time and helped me see how all the anxiety I have experienced most of my life was linked to early unresolved childhood trauma. My anxiety is still way down and not all-consuming the way it used to be. The therapy I did with Kalpana has helped me more than any other therapy I've done in my whole life. I finally feel "unstuck" and able to move forward".

Unfortunately we all can relate to feeling overwhelmed and “stressed out.” We help clients focus on the physical and emotional effects of stress, the unhealthy ways we normally try to “cope,” and learn positive techniques for coping in healthy ways. There are a number of effective strategies that help with managing and reducing stress. Anxiety can be result of prolonged or intense stress. It can also be more biochemical in nature. We take a varied approach to dealing with anxiety so that our clients experience relief from what can be debilitating symptoms. Panic and anxiety are our body's way of saying something is wrong. Let us help figure how what to change so that you can live freely.

Adults tend to view the world of children as happy and carefree. After all, kids don't have jobs to keep or bills to pay, so what could they possibly have to worry about? Plenty! Even very young children have worries and feel stress to some degree. Stress is a function of the demands placed on us and our ability to meet them. These demands often come from outside sources, such as family, jobs, friends, or school. But it also can come from within, often related to what we think we should be doing versus what we're actually able to do. So stress can affect anyone who feels overwhelmed — even kids. In preschoolers, separation from parents can cause anxiety. As kids get older, academic and social pr....

Anxiety and Stress usually have both physical and mental symptoms. Physical symptoms like sweating, nausea, difficulty breathing, tense muscles, and rapid heart rate. And mental symptoms like racing thoughts, easily getting distracted, or not being able to turn your mind off. I can help you become aware of your reaction to anxiety and stress, both physically and mentally, and develop coping strategies to manage these symptoms so you can feel relief. I can teach you relaxation strategies and mindful exercises. I can help you examine your thinking patterns in an effort to reframe and reprogram them, as a lot of anxiety is caused by the way we think about things.

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.
