Anxiety and stress are two things that bring many people to seek therapy. When I work with a client that wants to overcome anxiety and/or stress, I like to help him or her understand how to recognize the early signs of anxiety and stress, and help the client to identify coping mechanisms that will empower the client to overcome feelings such as being overwhelmed and/or paralyzed.

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.

New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Counseling clients with anxiety and managing stress is my reason for choosing this field to work in. For a period of my life, I was overcome with anxiety and panic attacks. This is no longer the case and my belief and my understanding that this can happen for clients I have seen as a result of getting help. The feelings are painful and in my case, became unbearable. The fear creates the fear. The "what if"? that starts every sentence. Whether it is to assess your options, learn techniques for mindfulness or learning how to deal with triggers, it is my goal as a therapist to assist you with gaining your life back. No one is anxiety free but it should not ruin your life.

Philip Kolba, MA

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.

Anxiety is most often caused by other feelings (fear, guilt, shame, sadness, anger, etc.) that go unacknowledged. I will help you to address your underlying feelings safely, and resolve them, so that your system does not have to pervade you with anxiety. Other times, it is necessary to resolve any traumas or bad experiences that caused the anxiety in the first place. Whatever the case may be, you will be in expert hands, and you will heal and learn new, healthy ways to relate to your feelings!

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

To most benefit clients with anxiety and stress, I use a Progressive Muscle Relaxation Exercise that the client practices at home. This repetition insures that the client incorporates the relaxation techniques as part of his system to combat anxiety and stress. Stress management techniques also are helpful tools to get past trying times. Moreover, I encourage clients to get out in the fresh air, when possible, and to exercise.

Isn't it impossible to go through life and not experience anxiety and stress sometimes? A lyric from the song, "Sunny Side of the Street" comes to me in relation to worry and anxiety: "leave your troubles at the doorstep." Of course, this isn't always easy, or even possible. When you're anxious, you experience it as a body sensation, don't you? Coming in for a session will help you listen to your body. Its tension is a message that we will decode together. Sometimes outside stress triggers old reactions, and your body takes a bigger hit than it would if you were only reacting to what's outside. By coming to see me, you will benefit by learning to manage and reduce your anxiety.

Anxiety and fear are reactions to perceived threat - universal emotions experienced by us all. When anxiety is out of control, it causes us pain and distress, often preventing us from doing the things we want to do. Fortunately, anxiety is among the most treatable psychological problems. I help my clients change their relationship to anxiety through processes such as learning mindfulness skills to handle painful thoughts and feelings, developing awareness of destructive thought processes, increasing emotional flexibility and clarifying core values. While suffering is an inevitable part of life, it is also an opportunity to learn, grow and expand - a springboard to a rich and meaningful life.

As our thoughts and feelings are explored and healed our authentic self can emerge and we live more whole and free - our true potential.

Anxiety is a general term for states, ways of being, or disorders that cause nervousness, fear, apprehension, and excessive worry. Anxiety affects how we feel, think, and behave, and can manifest real physical symptoms. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling, and can be a normal response to stressful situations. Severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating and seriously impact day-to-day life: it interferes with your relationships and activities, it stops you from being functional—that’s when you know you have crossed the line from normal, productive anxiety into the territory of an anxiety disorder and it's time to get help.
