Anxiety in any form is an uncomfortable physiological experience. And it is a natural human habit to want to avoid the situations that cause this uncomfortable feeling. The problem is that anxiety follows us as we go, claiming greater territory in our lives, as we, in turn, shrink away from new experiences and opportunities. As your therapist, I will help you change your relationship to anxiety. Through our work, you will find that by deliberately seeking out that discomfort and embracing it, anxiety retreats. This is the path to regaining lost ground, claiming new territory, and increasing your self-confidence and agency.

I help my clients learn how to self-soothe the part of them that is anxious. You can all do this by becoming aware of what you are telling yourself about a situation or others. Our thoughts often cause our feelings. I can teach you a process to be able to identify your false beliefs, learn the truth and then know what the loving action(s) you need to take to feel higher self worth and calmer.

We all face stress on daily basis- either positive stress, when we get ready for a Birthday party, receive an award or get married or negative stress from the conflict with the partner, loss of a job, or worrying about great sexual performance. Stress if unavoidable. What you can do through the process of therapy with me- is to develop your own tool box of Wellness techniques to help you manage stress and anxiety differently. I can teach you various relaxation and mindfulness methods that we can practice together in the office and then you can take them home and use when needed.

Many people have anxiety. Anxiety is the most common problem that clients bring into psychotherapy. Anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness, and dread. Sometimes you can say what it is bothering you. Your job or relationship may be causing you stress and you want to solve the problems. You don’t know how to deal with the mounting pressures. Friends will often say “don’t worry about it” but that doesn’t help. Sometimes you don’t really know what is bothering you it just is. I can show you how spot these feelings before they overwhelm you and what you can do about it. We’ll get clear on what has been difficult for you and how have you been feeling.

Anxiety can take many forms, including excessive stress, low self-esteem, panic attacks, phobias and compulsions. When fear or anxiety is experienced on a daily basis it can become so familiar that it goes un-noticed until problems arise that grab our attention. These can include health problems, insomnia or feeling stuck in bad relationships. Addressing anxiety can free up your energy and enjoyment, and give you back your life.

David Mark, MS, LCSW
Anxiety Counselor

David Mark, MS, LCSW

School Psychologist, Licensed Social Worker, Certified Gottman Therapist

In 11559 - Nearby to Highlands.

We have all had moments of anxiety and we remain anxious due to the beliefs we hold about our reality and the thoughts we have about our situation. An individual becomes anxious when they overestimate the negative aspects of their situation and underestimate their ability to cope and function in problem situations. The anxious individual will imagine and create even more negative consequences than are actually present. I guide my clients to a more rational approach of focusing on the task at hand, not engaging in or imagining negative outcomes, and not engaging in or exaggerating possible negative outcomes. We focus together on ways that enable coping, behavioral change and flourishing in that situation.

Helping you find wholeness...

In 10016 - Nearby to Highlands.

Stress can be felt from feeling pressure at work (or from not working), from always being on the go but still finding not enough time in the day, from feeling more responsibilities than you can handle, from being unable to deal with small stressors when they come up, from finding some areas of your life having significant effects on other areas of your life, or from many other sources. You can get beyond the effects of this by discussing what is going on and finding alternate strategies to deal with situations. Christopher looks forward to heling you on this journey as you see to come to a place of wholeness and peace.

In these sessions you'll learn how to turn a threat into an opportunity. How you can recognize and than pause when you're in fight or flight mode. This is an old, antiquated program, or story. You'll learn how to challenge this old story, to explore different ones and than to choose and act on your newer , better version. Lastly, you'll begin to understand what it means to "try easier" and how changing your pace and slowing down allows you to move from anxiety and doubt, to confidence and taking control.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

In 11215 - Nearby to Highlands.

I will help you with anxiety and stress in a variety of ways. Sometimes just talking can calm and de-stress you, especially if we explore unhelpful thoughts or poor time management that hinder you. Othertimes, I will teach you breathing exercises, meditation, EMDR and hypnosis that are natural healing agents. I will encourage you to engage in physical activity, spend time in nature, eat foods that are natural antianxiety benefits, or if appropriate, get a pet. If you wish, I will help you gain perspective by developing a spiritual approach.

Anxiety and stress are something we all have to deal with. It can result in panic attacks, phobias, sleep disorders, physical symptoms that can resemble medical conditions, as well as effect our overall physical health. Identifying triggers and effective coping mechanisms are good first steps to helping avoid and alleviate symptoms, but ultimately it is necessary to find out what caused the anxiety in the first place. This may be a recent event or something that happened decades to go. Giving yourself time to work through it is an essential factor, as pressure to improve too quickly and deadlines can be anxiety-producing.
