Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable.

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.

Symptoms of anxiety, which range from mild to debilitating, include worry, panic, perfectionism, obsessions, compulsions, or physical complaints. People can "self-medicate," and act in ways that may bring embarrassment or confusion. One can become sexually compulsive, use drugs or alcohol, eat emotionally, or shop too much. Therapy will help you to: identify ways to replace irrational thinking with more realistic ones; reduce stress, reconnect to the body; avoid people or situations less; and develop healthier coping strategies. I combine cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and trauma in ways designed to reduce anxiety, and to facilitate healing, growth & wellbeing.

Most people think of anxiety as a terrible enemy. It doesn’t have to be. Anxiety is a normal part of life, and it’s a vital part of your survival. You actually need some anxiety to perform efficiently. The problem isn't anxiety. The problem is when anxiety gets out of control ... That's when you have an anxiety disorder. Diagnosis of an anxiety disorder means you have problems dealing with stress and pressure. You may be ashamed of it, but you really shouldn’t be: as many as 15% of the population suffers from anxiety. Along with depression, anxiety disorders are the most common and widespread psychological conditions. I can help with this condition.

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 anxiety and stress using a cognitive behavioral approach. The goal is to help the client learn that they can manage their anxiety and stress. This is done through gaining insight into their perception and thinking around the circumstances causing them stress. We also work to help them reduce the anxiety through physical activity including exercise and relaxation. Combining the thought process with the physical component work well in reducing anxiety and stress.

Anxiety and stress are correlated with depression and frequently they co-occur. I can help people relax and lower their anxiety with EMDR and supportive counseling. I can also refer them for medications. Many times anxiety is a symptom of deeper unresolved issues which can be addressed psychotherapeuticly.Again EMDR can be used to help create a "safe place" to go too. It can also be teated with cognitive behavioral psychology as sometimes "distorted thinking" is involved.

Anxiety is an intruder! It interferes in an individual's daily life and interpersonal relationships. My approach to anxiety is straightforward: "Either you manage anxiety or it will manage you." The good news is that with knowledge about anxiety and the right tools you can manage this intruder. I teach my clients about the two primary responses to anxiety (one good and the other not good) and give them the strategies and management tools they need to keep this intruder from ruling their thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

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.

Anxiety feels terrible - locking away our natural gifts - interfering with our ability to live a joyful life. There are many interventions which can help us gain control over anxiety. Visualization and imagery, relaxation techniques, biofeedback, thought changing, exercise, energy therapies, music and research-based writing techniques - even good nutrition - are all effective methods for reducing anxiety. You can learn more about some of these interventions by logging on to the website www.mypainmanagement.net. The website contains interactive modules for managing a variety of emotions, including anxiety. I was the content author for these modules and use all of these methods in my practice.

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.

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.

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 can be hard to deal with it. Anxiety can cause worries, fears, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, lack of sleep and concentration. In counseling, you learn about negative thoughts and behaviors can contribute and trigger anxiety. Counseling helps to uncover the underlying causes. Together we find ways to relax, look at situations in a different ways, and to cope.
