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.

Do you have the same type of fears day in and day out? Do you continuously go over situations in your head? I can help you get out of this exhausting and debilitating experience. I can assists you by helping you recognize the fear and then teaching you how to cope with that fear so it is not overwhelming. I can help you focus on the things that you are happy and excited about rather than the negatives that "may" happen or the "what ifs" that stop you from even trying.

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.

Anxiety and stress take a hold on you and never let go, leaving you trapped and frozen. I help my clients to learn all about the magic of mindfulness practice. It's one of the most effective ways to put you in control of your emotions, rather than them controlling you. Imagine how great it would be to have an internal place of peace and serenity that you can use at any time to relax and become grounded. Mindfulness is an ancient practice that is also supported by scientific empirical studies. It's one of the best ways to change your life.

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.

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.

Does your life feel overwhelming to you? Do you spend too much time struggling to make decisions? Are dread and nervousness part of your daily life? Do you feel anxious spending time alone and/or full of dread at the prospect of socializing? Sharing your concerns in a safe environment can help dampen down anxiety and provide an opportunity to address the underlying issues.

Manhattan, New York 10001 | 1-877-606-6161

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.

Psychotherapist

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.
