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. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

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.

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 is considered a 'common cold' of psychiatric disorders. We offer psychological and counseling services to patients who suffer from generalized anxiety, panic disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, phobia, social anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorders. Our approach to therapy is individualized which is determined after a careful initial evaluation. In some cases, we offer hypnosis (hypno-analysis) and EMDR as modes of therapies. We also include spiritual counseling in many cases. We have a high rate of success in treating these disorders. We also collaborate with physicians if medication is indicated.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Our modern lives often put us in a state of persistent stress, leading to restlessness, irritability, and anxiety. What perplexes us is: the more we try to get rid of our anxiety, the more the anxiety seems to have a tight control over us — a phenomenon called the "control paradox." People often try to get rid of their anxiety with a coping strategy called “experiential avoidance.” Unfortunately, avoiding what we fear only ends up perpetuating our anxiety. The good news is: anxiety disorders are highly treatable with counseling/therapy. Don't allow anxiety to take your life quality away from you! You can reclaim your inner peace and equanimity. Help is available.
