Anxiety is a gripping, extremely uncomfortable feeling. The natural response to anxiety is to do anything you can to get rid of it. So, when you're feeling anxious, you are likely to engage in a variety of behaviors to help you feel better. These might include avoiding places, situations, or people that have made you anxious in the past or it might involve behaviors that help you feel better for a short time. The problem is that avoidance and behaviors that do not directly address the root of the problem don't work to resolve anxiety. My work with anxiety problems has been extremly successful in helping clients address the roots of their anxiety as well as the anxious feelings themselves

Clinical Psychotherapist

We all experience immense anxiety and stress at some point in our lives, most often, we experience it frequently. Anxiety and stress becomes a problem when it starts interfering with our day-to-day functioning, or when we begin avoid people, places, or things. I truly believe 1) getting to the root of what's going on - is crucial, but also 2) exposing oneself to the anxiety provoking stimuli (with a toolbox of techniques to use when anxious) is ultimately going to be the key to succeed.

Are you overwhelmed? Do you feel anxious, on edge, or do you find yourself worrying a lot? If it feels like your mind is spinning with worries, counseling can help. Some people experience anxiety physically with a racing heart, headaches or sweating. Others feel anxiety in their minds with racing thoughts, repetitive worrying, and intrusive thoughts. Some experience anxiety in their relationships with difficulty feeling connected to loved ones. Counseling can help ease the physical experience of stress, calm the racing thoughts, and help you to improve your relationships.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Damascus

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.
