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.

Anxiety and stress can be paralyzing forces in your life, preventing you from enjoying the important people and moments in your life. Cognitive behavioral therapy is very effective in helping my client to examine the thoughts, fears and assumptions that are driving their anxieties and to replace them with healthier ways of viewing and experiencing the world.

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.

Our approach to anxiety is to first identify patterns in your family of origin. Most clients who struggle with ongoing anxiety are often care takers of their families. Coming to grips with where these do good patterns may actually not be so good can help you as a client lesson your anxiety. Stress is typically more of how a person holds every day anxiety. These forms of anxiety can often be relieved by becoming more familiar with identifying and expressing your feelings in a safe environment.

Anxiety and Stress can be addressed through the use of a two pronged approach - 1) learning how to use practical and accessible tools to manage symptoms, and 2) identifying, understanding and addressing the underlying causes of anxiety and stress. Often there is some type of trauma that has been experienced, but hasn't been integrated so that healing can take place. Working in therapy relief from anxiety and stress can be achieved.

Because people want relief from Anxiety and Stress I give straightforward information and tools that they can use immediately. These tools are based on the most reliable method of counseling--cognitive-behavioral. For example, I present the 'cognitive triangle' a method of examining the various thoughts that arise from a distressing situation, and then the various emotions that result. This helps people choose HELPFUL thoughts.

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.
