Stress and anxiety have always existed. Our brains encode fear easily as a way to protect us from danger. A small amount of angst can help us feel motivated, but when it grows, it can stop us in our tracks. With the rise of technology, many people feel submersed in stress. Constant emails make us feel like work never ends. We text at meals times instead of having real conversations. Consider the stressful impact of 24/7 access to negative news reports, traffic filled commutes, over-schedulled lives, and its easy to see a recipe for anxiety. Learning to be mindful, taking breaks and truly connecting emotionally can create confidence to face fears and even dissolve them.

From time to time most of us will experience stress and anxiety. From a neuro-biological perspective, some of us are more prone to anxiety when we feel threatened or defensive. We together can use many strategies to lower the level of anxiety and work through the stress. Some of them include meditation and deep breathing, visualizing and 'anchoring' times you felt competent and have gotten though a stressful event successfully, writing journal of your experiences, using EMDR to visualize experiences in a different way changing your beliefs to positive ones.

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. A variety of cognitive, mind-body, and relational strategies can help you to make some of these lasting changes.

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

There are few things worse than being paralyzed by anxiety and/or stress. I have worked with people experiencing symptoms that mirror a heart attack when faced with a panic attack; it is scary, overwhelming and debilitating. The good news is that there are ways to minimize this overpowering discomfort. I have helped my clients learn simple breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and other helpful coping skills to help them function better when facing overwhelming stress. I want to help you to navigate your life so that anxiety and/or stress is not winning and robbing you of joy in your daily activities. Trust me on this one, I have seen the smiles on my clients who have won.

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.

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.

Anxiety and stress stem from the perception that you are not up to whatever challenges life may present. I help people to take a closer look at the ways in which they think that they do not have the resources they need to meet life's challenges. Sometimes this involves finding strengths and resources inside yourself that you did not realize you had. Sometimes is involves having the courage to look for such strength inside yourself and to ask others (such as fellow members of a therapy group) to help you.

Few things are as terrifying as Panic Attacks, which hit fast & hard, and in which you may have the harrowing belief that you are actually 'dying.' Other forms of Anxiety & Stress may linger over time, and be either all-consuming or subtle. They may cause: strained or depleted resources; sapped or jacked-up energy; and mounting senses of pressures or 'overwhelm.' My job is to help you 'transform' your particular (mental, emotional & physical) Anxiety & Stress experiences. I want to help you build resources that will work for you to deal with the kinds of difficulties & discomforts you face, in order to find your way through the 'challenges' to the 'contentment' that lies on the other side.
