Many people experience fears, or phobias, of objects or situations. Common phobias include fear of flying or driving, fear of certain types of animals, fear of medical procedures, fear of death or dying, and fear of germs and illness. Often people recognize that these fears are irrational, yet they are not able to reduce their symptoms of worry and face exposure to these objects or situations. This can result in strain on their relationships, jobs, and everyday routines.
We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address these fears and teach new strategies for relating to and thinking about the feared situation or object. We address, thoughts, behaviors, and emotions and provide a safe, supportive environment for individuals to work through these fears and expand their ability to engage with the world.
