Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

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.

The experience of chronic anxiety and stress can be depleting on an individual. My goal is to assist clients in challenging the causes and learning ways in which to reduce their stress and anxiety. I examine the long term effects on their physical well being as well as mental and develop plans to achieve a higher level of overall wellness. I often incorporate mindfulness strategies and mediation to center clients and become more in tune with the present. This is particularly helpful in working with my clients who are mothers or who are experiencing fertility issues or miscarriage.

If you experience worries, panic, stress, phobias, or obsessive thoughts, you may have an anxiety disorder and therapy can help this. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the therapy that is most effective in the treatment of anxiety and stress. Cognitive Therapy examines the thoughts that contribute to anxiety and Behavioral Therapy examines how you behave and act in situations in which you are anxious. Our perception of any given situation, not the situation itself, determines the way we feel,

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.

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.

Anxiety can feel so isolating. We feel it in our body as well as in our racing thoughts and feelings of fear and panic. It’s hard to describe and sometimes even hard to pinpoint its cause. In therapy you will experience a safe, non-judgmental space to learn more about the causes of your anxiety, gain skills to manage it and ultimately find relief from the physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety.

Research shows that during high stress seasons in life individuals are more likely to suffer physical, emotional and relational distress. Thankfully, research also shows that having someone journey with you during these moments of anxiety and stress can greatly reduce the impact in your life.

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.
