Anxiety is a signal your mind is sending to alert you of a real or perceived threat. For example, you are stressed about work: perhaps anxiety is a sign that your fear you are not good enough. There are situations in life when you need a signal so that you make the right decision at the right moment; but when anxiety is too intense, you feel paralyzed and cannot make decisions because all options seem to lead to the worst case scenario. I will help you learn from your anxiety so that you can look beyond the discomfort and understand what is the concern or fear underneath it; then we will work directly with that fear or concern.

Anxiety and stress can be very debilitating, and often exist due to past or present life circumstances. Fortunately, there are good therapeutic techniques to manage anxiety and help people return to better functioning and a happier state of mind. I believe that a safe and comforting environment is very necessary for anxiety clients. I work with cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and trauma treatment as necessary to help my clients find peace of mind.

It's hard not to feel stress in today's world. Constant exposure to stress, without tools and practice to manage it begin to affect our physical health as well as emotional and mental well-being. Learning self-hypnosis, mindfulness and breathing techniques and reduce stress and improve how we react to stressful situations. Journaling, doodling, and visioning also reduce the impact of stress. Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, painting and drawing create peace thoughts. Learning a new hobby, such as knitting, whatever your age or gender, is documented to reduce stress. You can learn these techniques, strategies and skills in the comfort and privacy of my office.

At some point, we all experience anxiety and stress. For New Yorkers in particular, anxiety and stress are a part of our everyday lives. They can cause panic attacks, phobias, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), frustration, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), heart disease, diabetes, isolation, high blood pressure, loss of sleep, irrational fears, muscle tension and depression. Often times it stems from genetics, relationships, illness, financial worries, or a major life event, such as marriage, divorce, loss or change of job. With decades of experience, I can help you develop ways in which you can effectively reduce your stress in order to regain a sense of both physical and mental well-being

I have experience with reducing and eliminating panic attacks, curing phobias, and reducing more generalized anxiety. Anxiety can feel unbearable, and give you the sense that you are in danger. Here also looking at relationships can be very helpful to determine where your anxiety comes from (modeling anxious parents, getting a sense that the world is a dangerous place). and what thoughts and feelings your anxiety may be distracting you from. Getting to know you well can be instrumental in giving you relief from anxiety and reassure you that you are not alone.

Some people also experience fears or phobias, as well as panic attacks. The symptoms of all of the above can be on a continuum from mild to severe.

There are six major types of anxiety disorders: post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and phobias. Each type of anxiety has overlapping qualities, but there are distinct symptoms between them as well. Many of my clients come to me suffering from anxiety and, depending upon which type of anxiety my client is experiencing, I customize my treatment to help them find relief. For a therapist, having intimate knowledge about the different types of anxiety is critical in order to provide the best treatment possible.

Anxiety is like a little monster that gets bigger and bigger if it isn't kept in check. I can help you or your child get past anxiety by slowly learning to face each fear. Of course, this is easier said than done! I teach a host of techniques to help with this, such as positive self-talk, role-playing, calming techniques and guided imagery. With children I also introduce play therapy- which usually feels like a lot of fun. Getting past anxiety is an empowering and confidence building experience for clients of all ages!

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.

We all have multiple roles and responsibilities in our lives—as parents, bosses, children, spouses, colleagues and friends. They help define who we are and can be immensely fulfilling and rewarding. They are often, however, the source of anxiety, fear, doubt and other obstacles to our happiness. These obstacles are usually deeply rooted in the expectations of the people, cultures and institutions that have surrounded us all our lives. Using mindfulness techniques, breathing exercises, and relaxation training I help clients realize the sources and triggers of their stress anxiety. I help them create a state of internal strength and calm that allows them to use their natural creativity to find

Psychotherapist

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.
