Stress and anxiety can be overwhelming and can leave you feeling as if panic is going to take over your life. Thinking about the future and "what ifs" can create such an intense feeling of loss of control and leave you questioning whether things will change. Questioning whether the anxiety you feel will ever go away. These questions are normal and common. Many clients I work with have struggled with these types of questions. In fact, stress and anxiety are normal reactions to life's uncertainty and change. They can actually be helpful in providing motivation and focus. If you're feeling overwhelmed and need support and care, contact me today. I can help.

Anxiety can be a debilitating condition that manifests in any number of behaviors including such things as isolating, and OCD rituals, to name a few. Many people who experience high anxiety have panic attacks which literally create a physical response that often mimics a heart attack. Panic attacks are terrifying and can sometimes occur without a trigger. When that happens, the fear of the panic attack is as intense as the anxiety itself which often causes more frequent and intense panic. The root of anxiety is fear. There are a number of therapeutic modalities that have scientific evidence that supports their effectiveness. I work to discover the cause and then find the right modality.

Anxiety and stress can feel overwhelming and paralyzing. I engage clients with anxiety and stress from a relational approach and offer strategies to tolerate distressing moments. When clients are ready, and if they desire to, we often explore biology and life events that may have perpetuated or caused their anxiety in effort to offer some relief and a broader perspective.

Stress eats away at our ability to be successful in life by compromising our physical and emotional health. Research now consistently shows the negative health effects of stress and anxiety on our bodies. Unfortunately we can't totally get rid of stress. But there are techniques that can help you learn how to manage it more effectively. In therapy we will work on teaching you these techniques so that you can be more present, less stressed and angry, and feel better in life.

Therapist/Licensed Professional Counselor

3103 Bee Caves Road, Suite 125, Austin, Texas 78746 | (512) 940-7434

I create a safe space so my clients can feel free to share openly. I teach my clients to become aware of how they talk to themselves and how they think about themselves. Sometimes my clients can be very hard on themselves. We look for the roots of why they treat themselves so harshly. In this way, we can search for the truth. So they can update and discover who they really are. I help each client find his or her own voice.

We're all stressed and many so stressed that they become anxious. I use educational psychotherapeutic tools to encourage people to distract their minds from obsessing and ruminating about their stress/anxiety. I emphasize quality and enough sleep, clean eating and reduction of treat food in their nutrition, at least 20 minutes of sweat inducing exercise per day (if physically able) and teach breathing exercises and recommend a relaxations CD to use daily. We discuss other activities that can reduce stress such as giving up talk shows for a while and listening to music that is more neutral than not.

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.

Anxiety and stress -- ah, how I know you both so well. Let's call them the twins as they tend to accompany so many of us this way on our journey in life. My goal in therapy is to help people have a better understand of what makes the twins (anxiety and stress) act out. What are the triggers in life, in their body, interpersonally that cause them to become unruly? These triggers are trying to teach us something. The question is what. For some, it may be linked to self esteem. For others it may be resources they need to engage to help fulfill their dreams. We then address better coping techniques to help people move past these difficulties and onto their dreams. We also use biofeedback.

Anxiety management is my specialty. I am also personally acquainted with it :) Not to brag, but 90% of my clients experience significant improvement in anxiety symptoms after 3-6 months of therapy. You will learn to focus your mind, create peace in your life, relax your body, and have more control over your thinking. We live in such a STRESSFUL world now! Our minds are constantly whirling round and round. True connection is hard to find. Social Media makes us feel less than. We need that "ding" on our cell phone to make us feel loved. Whew! Let's start moving towards peace. Call me. Let's get started.

Anxiety and stress are a part of life in many ways; our emotional cups can only hold so much at any given time. It is important to understand how these affect us, the false thinking that may be attached to them and how we can deal constructively with these issues. For more permanent change, it is important to understand and heal the hurt from present and the past which continue to be the source of our pain, anxiety and stress in the present. I work to help uncover these issues, give care and comfort and to help implement more permanent growth and healing.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

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.

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.
