Do you feel tense and worry about things that are not likely to happen? Does your worry prevent you from enjoying life? Are you unable to relax because your mind is always racing?

Stress, anxiety, and panic attacks are all too common in our sometimes overwhelming day to day lives: partners, work, children, family and other stressors are constantly pushing us to the breaking point. We also can experience anxiety that seemingly comes out of nowhere, anxiety that seems irrational such as a fear of getting out of the house, shopping, being around people or strange places. I work with my clients to overcome these fears; not only do I help relieve the symptoms with tried and true CBT methods, but I also like to go a bit deeper and look for the causes of anxiety. When these causes are addressed, the anxiety is more likely to go away for good.

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.

In relational psychotherapy, we spend a lot of time on relational feelings. They turn up in your daily relationships with your family, friends, and co-workers. We'll look at what happens in those interactions that leaves you feeling badly about yourself and make you feel anxious or stressful. You might begin to notice patterns there that make you think of earlier relationships in your life. We will talk about how those relationships told you who you are, what you're worth, and what you can get from life.

Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

Working with people who experience anxiety is something that I find very fulfilling. Anxiety can lead people to feel like an inferior version of themselves, affecting social interactions, familial responsibilities, work performance, and confidence in general. Stress is something that we need in our lives, to a certain degree. Without it, we would not have the motivation to do what needs to be done; excessive amounts of stress, however, can lead us to flight, fight, or freeze. Recognizing how stress affects us, and how to manage it in a way that promotes well-being is something that can be learned in therapy.

We all get worries and feel stressful at times. However, if your worries get in the way for you to engage in social activities or participate in particular events or go to specific places, you may experience some anxiety. Also, if your worries, fear or stress affect your sleep, appetite, school/work performance, and relationships, you will need to get counselling to help support you to de-stress.

As a former journalist, I know what it's like to work in a fast-paced world that leaves you feeling stressed, irritable, and not like yourself. Additionally, I'm a published author of a book called "The Anxious Teen," which specifically addresses how teachers, parents, and mentors can help teenagers cope with this diagnosis.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

Stress and anxiety when present within healthy limits can stimulate, motivate, challenge, warn and activate our bodies to react accordingly to the situation. When it's too much, too intense and for too long, stress and anxiety lead to poor functioning, impairment and exhaustion resulting in stress and anxiety overload, contributing heavily to triggering anxiety disorders. In my therapy, I use therapeutic approaches and techniques that help reduce stress and anxiety and enhance the quality of your life and build your emotional resilience. You develop skills to minimize distress and maximize efficacy in many areas of your living and live life in a happier and healthier manner

Stress and anxiety are the biggest preventable causes of unhappiness and illness. They poison your relationships, self-esteem, health, and happiness. The goals in helping you manage your stress/anxiety are to understand what your personal reaction to anxiety-provoking situations are, identify what your related concerns are, and learn to "let go" of anxiety. I will help you become more aware of the internal self-talk and how your thoughts affect your feelings. Thoughts affect feelings - feelings affect actions.

Feeling anxious? or stressed? or overwhelmed? The situation may seem to be so difficult, it maybe the stress at school, or the pressure at work, or the unfairness how others have treated you at work. But, you need the job, and have the anxiety going to work everyday. You can empower yourself by learning coping strategies and use them to handle your feelings and your automatic thoughts.

Anxiety and stress are close conspirators in getting a person immobile. I work to get the person moving, to better manage their stress and anxiety levels. Together, we explore how severe the anxiety is, it's self-sabotaging effects, and it's ability to demotivate and disengage a person from their true worth. I offer tips to manage anxiety, and I also provide a safe environment to discuss deeper, hidden emotions that are causing the stress and anxiety.
