People have told me that anxiety feels like a rubber band being stretched to its breaking point. In fact I've felt that myself, but never described it so well. As unpleasant as it feels, it serves to force us to look for solutions to problems. Sometimes we can't take our minds off of them. The anxiety worsens when we don't like the answers, or can't choose between a few, or, sometimes, can't define the problem but we know it's there. I will teach you quick, time honored techniques that generally ease anxiety quickly, and often help people sleep better and focus better so that problems and issues can be addressed one-step-at-a-time, via traditional counseling.

I work with clients facing overwhelming stress and anxiety by utilizing various modalities tailored specifically for them, I employ a holistic approach and believe through mindfulness, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and emotionally focused therapy that clients feel a sense of relief and calm by being able to take stock of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors and make sense of what the real issues are and by devising a plan to tackle them head-on.

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.

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.

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 occurs in everyone's life, but anxiety can be experienced personally in ways which cause difficulty. Through talking and learning about anxiety, we can strengthen coping skills, look at family dynamics which help or hinder, and change patterns to better deal with and overcome anxiety. Life can be more comfortable as we learn how to cope and continue to grow and develop.

"We have nothing to fear but fear itself!" FDR admonished the nation so many years ago. This is most certainly true, not just as a nation, but as individuals. "You'll never know how courageous someone is until you know how afraid she or he is." For some, it is easy to go to the store, meet a new person, or fall asleep easily at night. They are not courageous for this. For those who suffer with anxiety, panic, OCD, or phobias, each attempt to face their fear, just a little at a time, is, in fact, courageous. I am here as a guide and cheerleader for those who seek such courage and change.
