Some people describe themselves as 'born worriers', 'always anxious or afraid', 'hypersensitive since I can remember.' Others may have gone through something that is creating anxiety and stress at levels they've never experienced before. Either way, with a therapist at Bluestone, you will find ways to interrupt your patterns of thinking and behaving that contribute to your anxiety, worry or stress. Once you can interrupt these patterns, you will have the opportunity to calm your body, shift your thinking and choose courses of action that benefit you, your relationships and your life.

You do not need to live with anxiety. You know what I mean, the clenching in your stomach or the butterflies, the all too familiar headaches, the tightness in your shoulders or chest, the difficulty sleeping, the constant worrying. These symptoms and others are the result of anxiety. I offer a confidential, safe, and supportive place to talk about what you are experiencing and what you need to live with less fear more joy. There is a way to greater health and well-being. I can teach you relaxation skills, work with your negative thoughts that contribute to anxiety, help you resolve chronic stress that you may be carrying from your childhood, and teach you compassion and self-acceptance.

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 come up in so many different ways. From worries to full blown panic attacks, anxiety is not a simple thing to be dealing with. But in sessions with me, you will understand how to notice anxiety and deal with it in ways that free you to experiencing the rest of your life. If you find that you worry, therapy with me can help you work with the anxiety instead of against it.

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. We will work together to create coping skills to immediately address the pressing stress. Then, I often use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to get to the root of what is triggering your anxiety. In the end, I want to give you the tools so you can handle any new stressor without fear.

Lower anxiety and stress with helpful tools for you individually, in relationships, or at work. Sometimes anxiety rises because of specific circumstances and for others it has always been there. Our culture adds to our anxiety levels and learning how to avoid excess stress can make a huge difference. Anxiety can also be a reaction to something that happened in our past. Let me help you lower your reactions to stress.

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.

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.

Traumatic pasts, expectations of a scary future, extreme sensitivity to the world around us, and the shoulds we impose on ourselves that breed shame wield seemingly insurmountable power when we are in the grip of anxiety and stress.

From the safe enough place of being grounded in the Now, we dip into and unravel what maintains the power of your fears and shame.

Stress can manifest itself in different ways, many of which are harmful to your mind and body. Stress increases blood pressure, causes sleeplessness, and can reduce your ability to function in daily life. If you’re experiencing unmanageable anxiety and stress, it’s important to seek help. Counseling can help you identify your stressors, while offering healthy ways to cope. I’ve helped people like you who suffer from anxiety and stress by providing them with a safe place to unload their troubles while finding practical solutions. If your anxieties become overwhelming, let me help carry some of that load. It’s helpful to talk with someone who stands outside of your situation.

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.

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.
