I work with many children, teenagers, and young adults who manage varying levels of anxiety. In the pediatric population anxiety comes out in a variety of ways including social anxiety, test anxiety, school refusal, panic attacks, and constant worries. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced based intervention that I adapt for pediatric clients to help them overcome anxiety. If your child lives in a constant state of fear that something terrible will happen, don't delay another day, call to set up an appointment and start your child on the road to reducing anxiety.

Another name for anxiety is fear or anger. These emotions can be crippling in their intensity. Panic attacks can feel like a heart attack and account for many emergency room visits. I work to help you understand the sources of your anxiety as well as work with several physicians to prescribe medications as necessary. I also teach relaxation techniques, have used hypnosis in severe cases and help you control the "run away" thoughts that feed the anxiety.

Anxiety and stress counseling benefit by sorting through those parts of your life that are unsettling or overwhelming. Anxiety is based on fears, whether conscious or unconscious that counseling discusses in order to understand, problem solve and make peace with. I also teach Breathing lessons to reduce stress from my practice as a yoga teacher.

I help my clients identify where their anxiety and stress is stemming from. Not what triggers it, but what ideas about themselves and the world causes them to respond to triggers with anxiety and stress. After identifying the causes of these uncomfortable feelings, we can find ways to be present and aware of when this comes up and learn to accept and manage it in the moment.

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.

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

There are three things you need to learn about stress, worry and anxiety. First, you need to learn to ignore unhelpful thoughts. Second, you need to learn to accept uncomfortable feelings. Neither of these is easy. Meditation will help and I can teach you to do that; meditation is easy, despite what you may have heard and the research says it is the best way known to minimize the effects of anxiety and worry. The third thing you need to learn is what role worry and anxiety play in your life. You may not be able to be worry free, but you can learn to worry a lot less.
