I personally have suffered from anxiety and come from a family where anxiety was a pervasive undertow. I know how anxiety can dominate a life and stress the lives of others. Medications may have been tried and and medical services utilized and proven not enough. In counseling I work with my clients individually, sometimes together with a spouse, in a conversational manner to get at the thought patterns contributing to stress and anxiety. Helping the client to get to the base of their anxiety, how they are stressing themselves out in their given life situation and how specifically to change these entrenched patterns is my goal. Referrals are made for other forms of help as necessary,

Anxiety and stress are two issues I commonly address in therapy and are often the first to be addressed due to the importance of getting back on track with your lives. Adlerian therapy helps to understand past issues that may be affecting you currently, and Internal Family Systems will help to identify and quell the parts of you that feel most anxious or stressed.

Occasional anxiety and stress is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious or “stressed out” when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety or stress does not go away and can get worse over time. The feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships. There are several different types of anxiety disorders. Examples include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment from anxiety and stress.

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.

Our modern lives often put us in a state of persistent stress, leading to restlessness, irritability, and anxiety. What perplexes us is: the more we try to get rid of our anxiety, the more the anxiety seems to have a tight control over us — a phenomenon called the "control paradox." People often try to get rid of their anxiety with a coping strategy called “experiential avoidance.” Unfortunately, avoiding what we fear only ends up perpetuating our anxiety. The good news is: anxiety disorders are highly treatable with counseling/therapy. Don't allow anxiety to take your life quality away from you! You can reclaim your inner peace and equanimity. Help is available.

I have worked with many clients experiencing anxiety and stress in relationships with family, friends and colleagues or as a result of addiction and relapse, or health issues. Mindfulness practices are incorporated directly into my therapy sessions from the very beginning to allow my clients to begin to calm their overactive stress response systems and feel a reduction in their anxiety immediately. Over the long term, clients see the benefits of taking a moment to pause and reflect that they have a choice in how they respond in the moment to challenging interactions.

Stress and anxiety is very prevalent in our society. How it is experienced is very individualistic and therefore requires treatment to be tailor-made for each person. Thoughts and beliefs will be examined because this is where substantial changes can be made. We all have "stressors" in our lives while "stress" is the way we respond. I am very helpful with the individual's stress response and symptoms. I train the client in how to maintain their own regulation which teaching each person how to breathe and stay grounded as we know that when the sympathetic nervous system is aroused, there can be numerous symptoms that need to be addressed which are individual fear responses.

I work with many patients living with daily anxiety and stress. Anxiety and stress can rob a person of their quality of life and can ultimately negatively effect their physical health. Accordingly, I look at it as almost a personal safety issue. Quickly developing strategies to manage anxiety and stress is essential for my patients. Honestly, sometimes a person can not do it without medication, at least in the short term. Accordingly, I refer patients to one of several caring psychiatrists who can treat them as a supplement to talk therapy.

I am trained in evidence-based CBT, ACT, DBT, Mindfulness, and other effective therapies for anxiety and stress management. However, I believe that therapy goes far deeper than mere symptom management. I treat clients as a whole person. Effective therapy has its roots in a strong therapeutic relationship. Through my clinical experience, I have learned that tangible treatment techniques are only effective in the long-term when combined with a therapist steeped in passion and care for a client. This type of therapeutic relationship is evident in empathy, hope, respect, and an openness for connecting on deeper levels with clients. I am ready to go with you on this journey, whatever your pace.
