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 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 are actually two different things. Where stress usually comes from actual and identifiable challenges, anxiety tends to be more arbitrary in that there isn't necessarily one specific cause. However, both anxiety and stress tend to develop based on one's specific context--that is what one has experienced through their lifetime. While some anxiety and stress is actually good for us (i.e. propels us toward action), excessive amounts can create both emotional and physical challenges. I work with clients from a top-down/bottom-up approach, working to help the brain to better control the bodily effects of stress and anxiety and the body to control the brain.

Anxiety and stress is something that impacts many people, and having chronic anxiety can cause one to have panic attacks, depression, and can lead to you feeling helpless and not in control. I use CBT- cognitive behavior therapy to help clients overcome their feelings of anxiety. We will work together identify the core thoughts and the triggers that are causing you to be stressed and anxious. By understanding and identifying the triggers we can work on finding ways to make Anxiety and stress manageable.

Any change – or a need for change is stressful and can cause anxiety. Some of us live in a constant state of anxiety. Both are natural. One is struggling to adapt, the other is sensitive to the ongoing uncertainties that we live with day-to-day. Being in a constant state of stress or anxiety may be due to a traumatic experience or it could simply be how you are made. In either scenario, learning to recognize and manage your anxiety can add years to life, pleasure to your relationships, and happiness to your daily experience. This is accomplished through identifying the sources and working with our own particular patterns of response to change, dissatisfaction, and uncertainty.

Anxiety can feel overwhelming and at times debilitating. Stress can increase this anxiety to even more unmanageable levels. Learning ways to manage stress can help reduce the anxious feelings. I can work with to learn tools and skills to help calm you and ground you when you begin to feel overwhelmed. The goal is for you to feel like you can manage the anxiety that starts rattling you and to have some tools that you can pull out to calm you down enough to be more effective in that moment. Together we can work to find ways for you to feel calmer, more grounded and more like yourself.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Anxiety takes so many forms. The root is basically fear that manifests in so many symptoms. I help adults and children that suffer from this debilitating condition by giving them simple tools to practice as soon as they feel anxiety coming on. As they practice and use the tools to help them in their everyday activities, we work on processing where that anxiety originated from - with that the healing begins.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

38 Quail Court, Suite 100, Walnut Creek, CA 94596

I work with my clients to help them understand the differences between stress and anxiety. In both cases, I practice supportive, interactive psychotherapy in which I help my clients become insightful about the sources of their stress or anxiety. In treating anxiety disorders, I have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and/or a gradual approach to Exposure Therapy to be helpful. I generally refer my clients who suffer from anxiety to a colleague psychiatrist, with whom I work collaboratively, for medication management. In working with my clients who present with either disorder, I often teach strategies like meditation, relaxation training and journaling as a part of my therapeutic approach.
