In today’s world anxiety and stress cannot be avoided, they are innate signals that danger is ahead and we should mobilize ourselves against it. So anxiety can be very helpful at moderate levels (e.g. getting us to study for an exam). But high levels of anxiety can be paralyzing especially when there is no identifiable danger. In working with clients around these issues I take a multifaceted approach, exploring his or her current circumstances (e.g. family, work, etc.), and experiences in the past that may have contributed to the current problem. I also focus on helping to alleviate symptoms with practical suggestions like exercise and meditation as well as the use of hypnosis and guided imagery.

Anxiety is at the root of more personal difficulties than can be imagined. It can prompt unrecognizable or unexpected behaviors. It can push us to make decisions that are not in our best interests. It can account for misplacing trust in untrustworthy people or circumstances, and it can prevent us from allowing close bonds to develop with others. The stress we experience frequently points to anxieties that we are often unaware of. Recognizing when we feel anxiety and stress is necessary to curb their influence on our lives. In work with me you will focus on learning to talk about your feelings and experiences so that together we can discover how to make your inner life less conflicted and mo....

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.

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.

You will learn where your anxiety and stress come from and find creative ways to explore it and heal it. Anxiety can be very complicated. I will help reflect characteristics, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions that you are unable to see in yourself. The more you learn about yourself, the more predictable life becomes and the lower stress we experience on a daily basis. Daily stress equals chronic stress. Chronic stress is very unhealthy for us. You will learn coping skills for your in-the-moment anxiety and long-term skills to lower chronic stress. I am a Certified HeartMath Practitioner and can work with you through HRV biofeedback to reduce stress.

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.

While we all live with some degree of anxiety and stress in our lives, there are times when the anxiety and stress levels overwhelm us and our usual ways of coping no longer work. When overwhelmed by stress an anxiety, it is not uncommon to shut down, engage in poor decision making or partake in destructive escape routes. I help clients gain perspective, problem-solve, and find ways to increase support during times of extreme stress, anxiety, loss and disappointment. Clients with whom I work with on issues of anxiety and stress report feeling more hopeful, more capable, reassured and better able to tackle life's challenges and disappointments.

There is so much to do! So much to balance. Am I doing this as well as I could? As well as I should. Anxiety and stress is a sign that the "critic" in us is working overtime. The critic is ensuring that we are not feeling that we are worthy, that we deserve. It tells us that we are lacking, that we are less-than. We need to normalize these feelings, create a safe space, create boundaries and realistic expectations.

Anxiety and Stress hurt. Because loved ones likely don't know what to do for you and can't really understand what you are going through, it's hard for you to feel supported and understood by them. My office is your safe space where anything can be discussed without fear of judgment or ridicule. Especially in stressful times people sometimes lose sight of their own resiliency and their ability to cope. I work from a combination of accepted psychotherapeutic approaches and I will use my expertise, skills, perspectives, experiences and training to work with you in a collaborative approach to help you find and use your own strengths to move forward and succeed in your goal.
