We all deal with stress an anxiety on some level. They are often the result of an over-active mind. Often when we are feeling anxiety we are caught up in the future and find it difficult to be in the present moment. As a yoga teacher, I am a huge advocate of mindfulness practices and work with my clients to develop their own mindfulness and self care practices that work best for them. I understand that yoga and meditation is not for everyone so I strive to help my clients cultivate practices that work for them. I also work with my clients to create lives that are filled with meaning and fulfillment, which research supports helps us deal with stress and anxiety more effectively.

Successfully treating anxiety and stress is often illusive. Don't forget - stress and anxiety are not the same thing - kind of like thunder and lightening not being the same thing. It is possible to feel stress without feeling anxious. But, when anxiety flares up, stress is always waiting in the wings. We know that anxiety is a fear-based emotion. Genetics gone awry is to blame. Getting relief from stress is often easier than getting relief from anxiety. Stress can be managed to some extent, but anxiety is innate. We are born with it. Not great news I'm afraid, but there are therapies that can help overly-anxious people find relief. Medication is often the treatment of choice.

Got Stress? Get Creative! My favorite daily practice is to smile when I feel one of those feelings (stressed, upset, overwhelmed, anxious…) I immediately feel better and am able to respond effectively to what is in front of me (like car going too slow when I’m in a hurry or someone being rude/ unthoughtful/difficult). I learned this during my training over the years in performance and improv… learning to creatively respond to what’s coming at me/being offered by the world with acceptance and openness. And, as a therapist I have seen how creatively responding verses automatically reacting out of anger, fear, stress, frustration, etc can help clients as well as me. In the....

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Drab, M.A., M.Ed.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, Certified Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor

The key to understanding anxiety and stress, is to recognize that they typically caused by self-defeating, habitual ways of perceiving and reacting to situations. Some forms of anxiety can be considered diagnosable problems such as generalized anxiety, phobias, and panic attacks and may require the help of a professional to effectively address them. However, for everyday forms of stress the answer lies in realizing they are not the enemy, but only survival reactions which we can learn to manage skillfully through methods such as relaxation exercises, time management, and cognitive-behavioral approaches you can learn from books, videos and counselors who specialize in this area.

Licensed Psychologist

I will show you how you make yourself anxious about the things you find threatening and challenging. Anxiety and stress are largely self-created by the beliefs we tacitly hold about adversity or potential adversity. I will show you your self-defeating beliefs and teach you how to think so you feel sensible concern and do what you can do to avoid danger and threats. I will show you how to philosophically accept what cannot be avoided and thereby minimize the stress you feel about what cannot be changed or avoided. Using the power of your own ability to think in a self-helping way I will help you to change your feelings of anxiety.

WalkinTalkinTherapy can be a crucial component in the fight against anxiety and stress. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, unease, and worry. The source of these symptoms is not always known. Stress can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. You may have a harder time focusing, feel tired most of the time, or lose your temper more often. Stress may also cause sexual problems. It can also cause problems with falling or staying asleep and nightmares. While scientists have long known that exercise can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows it can have a deeper and more lasting effect when combined with talk therapy.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Riverside

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.
