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.

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.

Does your child seem more anxious or stressed than normal? I work with youth aged 3-25 who are experiencing some level of anxiety, or experiencing some level of stress. This may include homework stress, behavioral issues, self-harm, sexting, tantrums and arguing/talking back. I can support parents in different techniques, because even good parents need extra support at times. Kids don't come with owner's manuals, and we tend to default to our own family's dynamics as parents. Simple changes can have a significant effect on your child's behaviors. I also help youth identify their feelings and make better choices. Don't hesitate to call for a free phone consultation!

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.

Similar in approach to the treatment of depression, I take a holistic approach to the treatment of anxiety and stress disorders. I seek to restore function and break the momentum cause by ineffective habits that were created as a knee-jerk way of responding to anxiety symptoms. The instinct to try to control our emotional experience is strong and understandable, but often creates difficulties that make anxiety symptoms more entrenched and difficult to treat. Learning techniques of relaxation and mindfulness are instrumental in the effective treatment of anxiety symptoms and regaining the kind of balance lost in the unrestrained experience of anxiety symptoms.

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.

First, take a deep breath; hold it for 4 seconds; now let it out and say "Ahhhh". Anxiety and stress are a part of life and there is no way around it. But the symptoms can be managed well. Which type do you have? The six major types have their own distinct set of symptoms: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder (anxiety attacks), phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Treatment for each type varies. I use a variety of methods and techniques such as hypnosis, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, self- esteem / self -care & psycho-education. Go ahead, take another deep breath and see yourself feeling better.

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 is what we feel when we worry too much about the future or overthink events from the past in the present moment. It's a physiological experience that can feel overwhelming, even frightening at times, it can prevent us from making good decisions or prevent us from making any decisions at all! Fortunately anxiety is treatable, in many case without medication. I will help you understand anxiety and provide you with tools and strategies you can use to begin to free your mind. Within a few sessions, most clients are able to think more clearly and make better decisions. They feel more at ease and relaxed to do the things they'd like to do to lead a happier life.
