Anxiety can be such a constant struggle. But . . . you do not have to be alone, isolated, and overwhelmed anymore. You can reenter a place of peace and confidence. Often a trauma, loss, or other tough season leads to anxiety and keeps you feeling unsettled and unsure even if that particular situation has passed. Mindsight/ mindfulness wheels are one area we will develop and make sure you go home with practical comforting tools to deal with anxious moments. Let's talk and find a new rhythm for you in this season.

In a world that feels increasingly chaotic, anxiety and stress are common challenges that can feel anywhere from overwhelming to debilitating. I enjoy working with clients as they practice new skills to feel calm. I provide psycho-education about the connection between mind and body, along with practical tools to reclaim areas of agency clients have in their own mental health and wellness. If you feel overwhelmed in your work or at home, counseling can act as a "reset button" to slow down and evaluate what could be different. If you feel fearful or uncertain with racing thoughts or panic attacks, counseling can be the first step in finding relief.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In the end, I want to give you the tools so you can handle any new stressor without fear.

Does worry interfere with your responsibilities or daily life, disrupting normal activities, causing you to miss social events? Does it seem like you can’t stop your mind from racing as you worry about all kinds of things and often expect the worst? If you answered yes, you may be suffering from generalized anxiety. It may seem like your worries are coming from the outside, people and events that are causing you stress. In fact, your worrying may actually be self-generated from your own internal dialog running in the background. I will help you calm down and learn to override the negative thoughts while teaching you valuable self-soothing techniques, bringing peace back to your life.

Anxiety and stress are obviously two of the most common therapeutic issues we deal with in this modern world. In my work with clients who are suffering from anxiety and stress, I focus on helping them rebalance or reprioritize the areas of their lives so they can feel in charge again. Clients benefit by exploring where the disconnect is between their own perceived expectations about their lives and what is really reasonable.
