One source of Anxiety is a life-style full of pressure and stress when you may not be sure why you are so driven but you are moving too fast to slow down and find out what you are really feeling. Another, deeper source of Anxiety is an internal conflict in which one aspect of you is pushing in a certain direction and another aspect is either resisting or pulling in another direction. A third source of anxiety is a history of serious life difficulties when you may have been abused, ignored, or mistreated in some way. All of these kinds of anxiety can be helped if we can sit together and understand these anxieties in more depth. and find new and more effective coping mechanisms

Most anxiety or stress comes from interpersonal relationships (spouse, children, co-workers, boss, business partners). There is always underlying meaning and emotional content in our interactions with others. Often it represents interactions you had well before you ever met one another. Getting to understand the root causes, and creating in-the-moment behaviors and ways of handling emotion can change the stress and anxiety dynamics. One of the best books I've seen on this is "Difficult Conversations" written by the Harvard Negotiation Team., Stone, Patten, and Heen.

Anxiety is a debilitating disorder that deprives people of their happiness and sense of well-being. I work with children and adults to help alleviate their suffering. Together we explore their anxiety "triggers" e.g. what brings on their anxiety, and work with question those assumptions. Next I help my clients learn how to use tools to combat the thoughts that can paralyze and torment them and bring their negative thoughts back under their control, helping them to feel happy and confident once more.

Anxiety and Stress are part of the human condition. Many of us don't realize how much of our brain's real estate anxiety and stress take up - robbing us of being able to be present for what is in front of us instead of reacting to some fear or past trauma. I can help you build your inner resilience and recognition of when you are being driven by anxiety/stress so that you can find your way out of a historic reaction and into a more current narrative.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Menlo Park, CA

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.

Recent studies show that moderate stress can actually make us more productive and successful. But when stress and anxiety become too much to handle, they can make life miserable. I use mindfulness-based therapy to help you increase your own innate ability to decrease anxiety and keep stress manageable. If your symptoms are related to past experiences such as painful or difficult childhood experiences, abuse or trauma, I offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR therapy is a highly effective for relieving symptoms of PTSD and improving performance. Come experience it for yourself!

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Trying to balance work commitments and family can often cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. I can help you find better ways of coping with life's stressors while helping you create balance for your specific needs. Sometimes anxiety seems to appear out of nowhere and that could very confusing and isolating. For deeper rooted causes of anxiety, I use Cognitive-Bahavioral-Therapy and EMDR. CBT helps you understand the thought processes that may be causing your anxiety. EMDR helps us explore some past traumas that maybe getting triggering anxiety and then work to desensitize the trauma for more relief from the symptoms.

Who doesn't experience anxiety and stress in this life? We all do. In some cases stress comes from the ongoing challenges we encounter in daily life. Exercise, good diet and relaxation through doing fun things to doing a stillness practice re-centers us. But that isn't true where trauma or ingrained negative thinking has control in our life. But there are tools and processes that can restore us to a more peaceful normal. Using a blend of EMDR and energy psychology tools we can bring your anxiety symptoms down from totally controlling your life to getting you back to living your life again. Plus you can learn the process for clearing your stress and anxiety yourself.

Anxiety is an internal alarm system that gives us information about our internal state as well as possible danger in the external world. Often, anxiety is a signal of deeper, more intense emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear. It can also be a consequence of not living authentically. Once these deeper feelings are identified and expressed, they can be readily released. For example, when we say "Yes" when we really mean "No," we will often experience anxiety. In this case, the anxiety is providing us with a warning that we are not being honest (living authentically) with ourself and/or another. Therapy is the perfect place to explore this common emotion.

Fear can affect our quality of life in powerful ways. It can interrupt our sleep. When anxious, one may isolates them self from others who would otherwise offer us companionship. Fear rob us of opportunities for sex or romance. When we are afraid, we are not ourselves. The primitive physiological responses of fear are related survival or are about having no hope at all. You can learn to calm yourself, so the world appears more objectively. We are actually better able to protect ourselves, when we are able to distinguish what is factually dangerous and what is safe. When we relax, we are able to see creative possibilities in our relationships and our work.
