Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Manhattan, New York

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 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.

Anxiety Counselor

Daniel Minuchin, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

280 Madison Avenue, Suite 208, New York, New York

i work with people experiencing general anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, anxiety and depression, and procrastination related to anxiety. Generally I use a mix of hypnotherapy and other therapeutic modalities. My experience is that hypnotherapy can be a useful tool for dealing with anxiety. I also usually use a more traditional therapy approach, looking at family background and the roots of the anxiety. And problem solving approaches, looking for concrete ways to reduce anxiety and using more strategic approaches.

Anxiety Counselor

Heidi Seifert, LCSW-R, MA

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

85 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York

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.

So much of our stress has to do with perception: the messages we picked up throughout life from others, parents – the glasses through which we view self and others. There are the events and circumstances, and then there's how we see and interpret them. Let's face them, explore them, take a good look at them, shrink it all down to size, get you feeling capable and confident. And then make changes: removing stressors and adding in meeting your needs.

After excluding any substance or alcohol use/abuse and/or medical illness playing a role in the patient's presentation (asthma, hypoglycemia, cardiac disease (including arrhythmias), hyperthyroidism, pheochromocytoma, and/or seizure disorder, for example, consideration of medications taken and caffeine use, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and learning tools and coping techniques and elements of other psychotherapies will be implemented. With regard to the emotion of anxiety, I target cognitions related to present and future threat of harm (either physical or psychological), physiological responses when confronted with anxiety-relevant stimuli, and behavioral tendencies to avoid anxiety trigger

Here, as with depression, the problems come in many many forms and involved many different additional feelings as part of them - anger, depression, rage, discouragement, frustration, resentment, and so on. Your particular constellation of these feelings, your unique collection of symptoms, and of course your personality - your way of experiencing and handling life - all play into how your therapy will go. Some relief is usually quick with simpler anxiety and stress symptoms. More ingrained anxiety, forming your longer standing mode of interacting with the world, will take longer to abate.

Anxiety Counselor

Michael Picucci, PhD, MAC, SEP

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

44 East 12 Street, New York, New York

Most anxious/stressed clients feel trapped by the circumstances that life has presented them. By introducing some elegantly simple tools, you will discover that there are openings (physically and energetically) that can dissolve frustrating anxiety/depression. Importantly, you become aware of perceptions and experiences not previously available to you. The tools/exercises that we use in session experientially shift us out of our everyday minds - This allows us access to another intelligence within a naturopathic pathway supported by our bodies, our hearts and nature.

Stress is not only an internal problem but is evoked by environmental impingement such as family, business, and political currents. All individuals have varying levels of stress in their lives. One of the focuses of psychotherapy is to help with increasing a capacity to move through it. An enhanced capacity for imagination and creativity can be a result.

Anxiety Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA


Available for Online Therapy

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Annee Ackerman, Ph.D.


302 5th Avenue, Suite 801, New York, New York

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.
