Many people live each day with anxiety and stress. But you can learn to cope and manage your anxiety to make each day more enjoyable. With the use of cognitive-behavioral techniques, you can take control of your negative thoughts. With my research and specialization focus on trauma and chronic traumatic exposure in parents and children, I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which allows the child (along with their parent) to process, understand, and cope with trauma and improve symptoms.

Stress is a very general term encompassing many factors in one's life circumstance. Defining stress for the individual is the one issue that needs to be undertaken first and foremost. Clients can expect to identify and evaluate various stressors in their lives, gauging each one on it's influence. Stress can directly impact your feelings and needs to be mitigated in order to avoid the common pitfalls of inappropriate levels of anxiety.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Scared or worried a lot? Agitated? Feel unable to cope adequately? Unable to focus? These are some of the uncomfortable symptoms of anxiety. And, try as you might, these symptoms are hard to control. Treatment for anxiety involves carefully building or rebuilding the injured self and treating the underlying causes of the anxiety. Often, treatment includes specifically designed behavioral modification tutorials that are incorporated into the therapy. The benefit of seeking treatment for anxiety includes reducing the painful symptoms associated with feeling anxious, and resuming a full and unhampered life.

Psychotherapist

My experience is that everyone can overcome anxiety. Whether the anxiety is experienced as physical discomfort in the belly, chest or throat; or annoying, intrusive thoughts in the form of "what if's;" or general restlessness, counseling can be wonderfully helpful and curative. My own method includes: 1. teaching relaxation and breathing techniques, 2. mindfulness practice or hypnosis to enhance your ability to focus, as well as to support your sense of control over your own thoughts, and 3. psychotherapy to help you move forward in your life by understanding and overcoming the deeper causes of your worries and discomfort.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Wantagh

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Fear is about the past, anxiety is about what we imagine will happen in the future. Fear and Anxiety mean, by definition, that you are not living in the moment. In order to help you identify what is causing you anxiety, the approach is for you to vent what you are feeling and how it is hindering you. I will ask strategic questions that will make you think, behave differently, and take back your life! I will offer you as many approaches to handle your anxiety as you will need to relinquish the hold it has had over you. Stress occurs when we feel out of control. I will help you manage it and even reduce the instances of stress in your life.

Anxiety Counselor

David Mark, MS, LCSW

School Psychologist, Licensed Social Worker, Certified Gottman Therapist

Within driving distance of Wantagh

We have all had moments of anxiety and we remain anxious due to the beliefs we hold about our reality and the thoughts we have about our situation. An individual becomes anxious when they overestimate the negative aspects of their situation and underestimate their ability to cope and function in problem situations. The anxious individual will imagine and create even more negative consequences than are actually present. I guide my clients to a more rational approach of focusing on the task at hand, not engaging in or imagining negative outcomes, and not engaging in or exaggerating possible negative outcomes. We focus together on ways that enable coping, behavioral change and flourishing in that situation.
