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.

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.

I want to help you get relief from your anxiety. Living with a lot of anxiety can feel like you don’t quite get to be yourself. It can leave you not enjoying life as much as you’d like. Sometimes it can impact your relationships. We’ll look at the situations that trigger your anxiety. We’ll track what your perceptions are, what behaviors you do, what other feelings are there along with the anxiety. Once we have a better understanding of the anxiety, we can explore more effective ways of managing it. I will also help you learn the practice of self-compassion, as well as tools that can help reduce anxiety.

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.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Damascus

There are many things that cause us to feel uneasy or uncertain as we move through our daily activities. We may be worried that we will be late for work or may feel anxious about getting a job. Together we will look at ways to reduce stress and make changes to make life less complicated. Sometimes the level of anxiety always is very high and I will help you find interventions to reduce that feeling of being overwhelmed. We may be able to use cognitive behavioral techniques along with meditation and tai chi movements. All sessions will focus on helping you move toward a less stressful life.

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.

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Marianne Riley, M.A., NCC, LCPC

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.

Anxiety Counselor

John Rhead, Ph.D., CGP

Licensed Psychologist

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.
