Stress & Anxiety

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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 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

Patricia Kelly Michals, LCSW, MFT

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Rancho Santa Fe, CA

Anxiety and stress are on a continuum that starts with mild excitement and goes up to terror. I use varied approaches in treating anxiety and stress. The first step is to evaluate how strong the feelings are and what seem to be the triggers. Then the client is encouraged to see if the feelings relate to past events and also with bodily sensations happening while talking about them in therapy. There are many tools to decrease and eliminate anxiety...breathing exercises, mindfulness meditation, and energy psychology. Also learning self soothing techniques that provide calm and safety. We must all be "our own best friend".
