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.

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.

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.

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. 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.

I teach clients tools they can use to deal with their anxiety and stress. Some of these tools are from Dialetical Behavioral Therapy(DBT). I also offer tools I've gotten from other sources. In addition, I do relaxation exercises with clients, mainly guided imagery. Clients will often find meditation, which I can teach them, helpful as well. Sometimes, the cause of clients' anxiety and stress is rooted in past experiences(and, at times, trauma)that continue to run their lives. In this case, EMDR(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)is quite effective and clients notice a great improvement in their symptoms.

Occasional anxiety and stress is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious or “stressed out” when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety or stress does not go away and can get worse over time. The feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships. There are several different types of anxiety disorders. Examples include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment from anxiety and stress.

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,
