Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) If you feel uncontrollable or excessive anxiety and worry more days than not during any six month period, you may be experiencing Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). You may feel constantly on-edge, irritable, tired, unable to concentrate, complain of muscle tenseness or have other physical complaints, or your sleep pattern may be disturbed. If anxiety or worry is creating emotional distress, hindering your life, or causing you a lack of achievement or satisfaction in your life, even if you are not experiencing panic attacks, a psychotherapy consultation for General Anxiety Disorder is recommended and I would welcome your inquiry.

The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.

I help people identify the triggers to their anxiety and develop a system to deal with stress before it deals with them! What would your life be like if you weren't continually activated in negative ways by stress? We will work together to make small steps toward change. Clients report less chronic pain when they are managing anxiety in healthy ways. It is possible to reduce anxiety and live life in a more vivid way, even if you situation is not optimal. I can teach you to acknowledge and release these negative thoughts, thus releasing the "trauma" that has built up in your body (stored stress and anxiety)

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.

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.

A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.

I will work with you to teach you proven techniques to recognize and manage your anxieties. You will benefit greatly in making subtle changes in the way you process information, assess your interactions, and cope with problems.

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.

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.

Good therapy helps uncover the root causes of anxiety, and finds ways to transcend the specific current issues and deals with the underlying sense of worry that seems to arise from nowhere. Anxiety arises due to one's own natural energies being turned back on oneself. I help you see that the anxiety and circular, repeated thinking are due to deeply-held messages. These restrictive messages cause you to feel that authentic self-expression is dangerous, not wanted, and unhealthy. Gradually discovering old traumas and hidden beliefs so they are fully understood and digested, frees you to live in more peace and more fulfilled.

Anxiety can take many forms, including excessive stress, low self-esteem, panic attacks, phobias and compulsions. When fear or anxiety is experienced on a daily basis it can become so familiar that it goes un-noticed until problems arise that grab our attention.

Anxiety and stress are two of the most mind consuming elements people have. They are hard to control and manage. They are emotionally draining and fatiguing. You may be experiencing high levels of anxiety and stress and think that only medication can help you. I believe that people have the power within to be more helpful to themselves than they may believe or know. Having a willingness, desire, and commitment to try new behaviors and feel better prove positive for many people I work with.

I have several strategies that have proven to be very effective in helping my clients decrease their anxiety. I utilize cognitive therapy to help clients develop a toolbox with as many tools as possible to help them cope with their anxiety. This helps them get through they day, the hour or the minute so that they can successfully complete daily tasks and pursue personal and professional goals. I utilize psychodynamic psychotherapy to help clients become aware of the underlying issues that may be contributing to their anxiety. Once they have gained this insight, they are able to cope with their anxiety better and live their lives with more confidence and joy.
