Our clinicians are experts in the assessment and treatment of all Anxiety Disorders.
We specialize in the use of Exposure Therapy , the most effective treatment approach for most anxiety disorders.
Each case is handled with sensitivity and care, before beginning exposure therapy, the clinician teaches the patient anxiety-management strategies and ways to address thoughts that perpetuate anxiety. Together, they develop a hierarchy of anxiety-producing situations or stimuli and then begin the process of exposure to the elements identified in the hierarchy.
We strive to deliver high-quality, cognitive-behaviorally (CBT) focused services, including evaluations, therapy, and consultation. We focus on accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of emotional, occupational, and relationship problems. Our CBT emphasis maximizes practical and solution-focused techniques that increase patient insight, productivity, confidence, and happiness.
Using this approach, the person faces their fear in a virtual world, which simulates the feared situation. The patient wears goggles and headphones and experiences visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (or physical) information immersing them in the situation. The patient will “feel” like they are “there,” and with the trained clinician asking specific questions and creating patient-specific events to occur in the software, the patient will respond physically and emotionally as if the situation was real.
