Most of us experience anxiety and stress as part of our daily lives. Sometimes that stress is like the water we swim in--we may not notice our stress level until we are feeling overwhelmed and on the raw edge of an angry outburst or the helpless feeling of hopeless collapse. Learning to recognize our stressors, and the inner drives that cause us to react to them rather than respond is one important transformative tool that can bring us forward on the path to changing our relationship and the ways we respond to our ever changing worlds.

We hold our anxiety and stress in our body. We feel tension, gut problems, hot flashes, disrupted sleep and more. I work with anxiety and stress by helping individuals learn and develop tools to re-regulate their nervous system. When we have a coherent and fluid nervous system, we can do difficult things without feeling paralyzed by overwhelming fear.

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.

Anxiety and stress go hand in hand. Stress is in our everyday life and keeps us moving, learning, and it is important for survival. Oftentimes, though, the mind's reaction is to continue the stress response long after the need for the response is critical and this is where the body and mind have a hard time shutting off. This is usually where anxiety creeps in and becomes a constant , unrelenting companion. The symptoms include inability to get to sleep or stay asleep, a feeling of being constantly on edge, irritable, not being able to enjoy the company of friends and family, heart racing, and possible muscle tension. Mindfulness, biofeedback and neurofeedback can help decrease anxiety.

Anxiety can be overwhelming and paralyzing. Often our head keeps spinning with ideas about "what if?" When working with people struggling with anxiety I start with the importance of understanding anxiety and panic and how it plays out in our brain. After that we can take steps to learn relaxation techniques and coping skills to handle the uncomfortable feeling. This then provides us the opportunity to find what is "behind" the anxiety, stress or panic to minimize its effects and help clients resume a life that is not paralyzed by anxiety.

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.

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.

Anxiety and stress can cause a chain reaction in our lives, leaving us feeling powerless and overwhelmed. Relationships which we hope to be part of our support system can greatly contribute to anxiety and stress, causing communication barriers, sleep issues, and health problems. Therapy can help get to the root of the problem and identify what is contributing to the anxiety and stress, and provide tools to better manage the stressors of life.

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.

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 and stress are related, but not the same. Anxiety is a fear of what may happen. Anxiety is imagining what you most desire NOT to happen. When we trap emotions and fears inside, the energy gets stuck and can manifest as anxiety. Identification of what you are holding onto or fearing is the way through anxiety. We don't get rid of anxiety. We simply learn how to choose better coping mechanism. www.melissaquiter.com

It's challenging if not impossible to live in today's world anxiety and stress free. But for some, anxiety and stress are interfering with the ability to enjoy life, relationships, and work. This does not have to be. For those with a family history of anxiety, a combination of medication and counseling is often a very effective remedy. For those whose anxiety is strictly situational- techniques discovered in counseling and practiced in life are the suggested remedy for empowering one in their every day lives. I can help you in your quest for peace and confidence in this area of your life.

In 78738 - Nearby to Lago Vista.

Stress and anxiety are inescapable in our culture. We have to deal with work, family, school, finances, relationships, health, and spirituality, and all too often, they conflict. It is how we handle it that determines how it impacts our lives. For some of us, our anxiety seems to take over our lives, whether it be generalized or related to specific issues. For others, we often do not realize the symptoms of stress until it overwhelms us. There are mental, emotional, behavioral, and health-related symptoms. If not dealt with, it can impact our relationships, our health, and our functioning. I specialize in helping people learn healthy ways to manage and overcome anxiety and stress.

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.

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.

Anxiety and stress present in different ways, but we know that they can destroy our own bodies and psyches but also make us difficult partners at home and at work. Anxiety and stress have both biological and environmental factors, so we work on this from a holistic perspective. We look at your sleep habits, your overall health, the anxiety handed down biologically and environmentally from family, and the negative, unrealistic thoughts that may be keeping your stuck in an anxious state. EMDR is an excellent non-pharmaceuical treatment for anxiety/stress, because it works from this holistic perspective and pays special attention to the trauma underlying and fueling the negative cognitions.
