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.

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.

I use a variety of therapies - talk, expressive, imagery, biblio (reading), cognitive, behavioral. I adapt the techniques I use and the length of therapy to best help the individuals. Many people come to me for help dealing with anxiety and stress. Some of this is simple or related to single events. Some is chronic. Some is both chronic and profound. Much of my work has been with people who have lived through severely traumatic events. These people have what we now call "complex PTSD." Some have even experienced ten, twenty or more years of hurt, neglect, abuse or victimization. Some have lived through years of incest. Some were used by adults in child pornography or child prostitution.

Anxiety and stress will visit all of us at various times in our lives. When they stay, they interrupt our ability to enjoy life, function, and connect to those we love. The best approach to anxiety and stress is to combine understanding the triggers with changing our physical response to the stressor. When we meet, we will quickly identify ways for you to reduce the anxiety/stress symptoms to help you feel better. Next will be our identifying what situations are causing your feelings, and we will then figure out together how to change those situations to help you feel better and get on with enjoying your life.
