Relational Psychotherapist / Counselor

You have this shortness of breath, your heart is racing and your foot won't stop tapping. You can't sit still and you really just want to get up and leave the room. You have hives that are unexplained and this irritating cough that just won't go away. You find yourself yelling at the person in the car in front of you, and you don't understand your kids. Anxiety takes on more forms than we can fully know or understand. Yet when you begin to talk about it, any of it, all of it, your story, your life in general, with someone who is trained to listen and to help see into your life, all of a sudden, the cough lessens, the yelling softens, the hives disappear, and life begins to make more sense.

Anxiety is a common struggle that we all face from time to time. However, for some, anxiety can become an all consuming, unshakeable force that threatens your ability to live with a sense of security and peace. If you are struggling with what seems to be uncontrollable moments of anxiousness, please hear that there is hope; you can once again, or sometimes for the first time, feel a sense of peace and direction for your life.

There are many different types of anxiety and stress. You may be having an adverse reaction to a specific incident or you may be coming to me with a lifelong struggle around generalized anxiety. I work with many clients who have experienced workplace stress and trauma and help them make sense of their situations so they can make informed decisions around a course of action. I help many clients uncover lifelong anxiety that has become so normalized that it may not register as anxiety. Ways of coping with anxiety may be also be causing problems. The goal would be to discover better tools to deal with both the underlying issue and the problems that outdated coping skills may be causing.

Stress, anxiety, panic and PTSD can all be debilitating. I will work with you from a variety of angles: biologically, psychologically, and sociologically. Together we will look at practical issues such as caffeine intake, work/life balance and relaxation techniques. But more importantly, we will explore and help clear the deep neurological pathways formed from your earliest life experiences and later traumas which have wired your brain for fight, flight or freeze. Lifespan Integration is a very effective method for helping to convince the body-mind system that the trauma is over, the past is really the past, and the system can now relax in the relative safety of the present.

We live in an ever-increasing anxious world, and for those who struggle with anxiety, I can help you put your anxiety in it's place. Anxiety and stress can be helpful, but only to a certain degree- and I want to help you lower your stress from a 9-10 to a 2-3.

Anxiety is on the rise - and it pops up in many shapes and forms slowly or suddenly, taking up so much of your mental and emotional space inside that nothing else gets to flourish. However, change is possible! Through a process of coming to know you, your story, the triggers for your anxiety and why it seemingly capsizes your boat leaving you to drown in fatigue and despair, we will find a path forward and you will regain a sense of control and internal strength. In my work I have been honored to help my clients over time to find relief and hope as they regain their lives - or for the first time, to build their life without the crippling experience of anxiety taking over any or all of it.

Anxiety and stress are real problems that keep too many from living healthy, balanced lives. Whether it’s sleepless nights or full-blown panic attacks, we will explore the issues together and determine the best course of action. Current stressors such as relationship difficulties and traumatic events can cause anxiety, however, the cause can also be rooted in the past without your awareness of it. Often the help of a trained therapist can make the difference in finding and healing the source.

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 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.

In today's fast-moving world it's hard not to be stressed out. It can be even harder to determine if the stress and anxiety is "normal" or should be treated.

I help client identify what their stress/anxiety looks like and how to better manage it. Stress doesn't have to be bad, in fact it can be channeled in ways that will make you more a more productive person and help you reach your goals... with the added bonus feeling less stressed and more relaxed.
