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.

Chronic stress and anxiety are so prevalent in our society today. Especially with all of our gadgets and the fast pace of everything. It's difficult, and sometimes even near impossible to slow down. Anxiety can contribute to physical illness, sleep deprivation, and cause you to generally feel miserable. By giving my clients multiple therapeutic techniques, I've helped most of my clients successfully eliminate the need for their anti-anxiety medications. After working with me, my clients have experienced a significant reduction in chronic worrying, physical symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, etc.), and improved the overall quality of their lives.

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.

To help people reduce & manage their stress I utilize clinically proven psychological concepts of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) & Mindfulness. CBT helps to address the way we process information because what we think & how we process that information leads to how we will feel which leads to how we will or will not behave. DBT concepts help us to regulate our emotions in a healthier way & Mindfulness is a very particular way of living in the present moment of life, leaning to notice things vs judge & respond vs react.

Consistent worry, fear and a feeling of being unsafe or unsettled can have a serious impact on relationships, work and self-esteem. Stress slowly diminishes are ability to live a full and engaged life and is often difficult to control on one's own when it has spiraled to unmanageable levels. My work with mindfulness and meditation, on a personal and professional level, has led me to believe that it is very effective for teaching us how to successfully walk through a world that is becoming increasingly hectic and often overwhelming. We will work together to recognize what patterns in the mind/body can be eliminated to leave room for joy and ease to enter into daily life.

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.

Allow me to walk along side you, carrying the burden with you and resolving the source of the stress and anxiety together. I look forward to working with you, don't go it alone.

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 fear comes in many forms yet stems from living a life in the future not the present. Walking through what the fear might be helps the client become strong face what life in the present has in store for them. Focusing not he here and now eliminates many fears and anxieties. Understanding if brain chemistry is playing a significant role in the intense sometimes out of control emotions will need to be determined before effective psychotherapy can be utilized.

Do feelings of worry, anxiety, and stress get in the way of you living the life you envision? I focus on helping people understand the role of anxiety in their life, and work with them to develop the skills to change their relationship to challenging thoughts and feelings. As difficult as it can be to experience anxiety, there is freedom in being able to take action on what matters most even when anxiety shows up. How would your life change if you were able to be the person you want to be without anxiety holding you back?
