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 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.

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.

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)

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.

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.
