Anxiety is fairly common in today’s stressful, high pressured world. The symptoms of anxiety can often cause significant distress or impairment in daily routines and relationships at home, work or other important parts of life. Fortunately, anxiety, stress and worry are treatable and many people can find complete relief. I use Cognitive-behavioral therapy which has been proven to be helpful in assisting people to recognize and change thought patterns and behaviors that lead to troublesome feelings. It is both oriented in practical problem solving and in identifying, evaluating and modifying thoughts.

Axiety and stress sometimes become part of our daily life. There is a connection between our thinking to our feelings that is very easy to understand and take charge of so that we can create healthy change in or lives. These patterns can often be tracked from the modeling in our family of origin or even possibly a physical imbalance. Coping skills go a long way in creating balance and peace in our lives, but we often need to slow things down to get some understanding of how we are processing information and expectations in our lives and relationships.

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.

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.

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.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) is an evidence-based treatment model. From an ACT perspective, struggling and pain are part of the human experience. The essential components of ACT include stop struggling with unwanted thoughts and feelings, being mindfully aware of the present moment, and committing to a course of action that is consistent with what matters to you in life. ACT helps you stop fighting and/or avoiding your anxiety, develop a new relationship with your thoughts and feelings, and live the life you desire.

Anxiety and panic are some of the most uncomfortable emotions people experience. The key to ridding yourself of fear is to face it. Worrying about a problem is NOT the same as facing the problem. By shining light on the hidden fear, you will immediately diminish its power. Then, through examining your strengths, developing skills and coping mechanisms, and by practicing courage you will quickly turn your anxiety into confidence and power. The situations and people you used to dread will quickly become manageable and possibly even exhilarating.
