Fears and Phobias
Avoiding people, large events, engaging in conversations, going into stores alone. These are just to name a few. Whatever it may be the reality is the more you avoid the harder it is to approach it and you keep the fear alive. Most recently with COVID and quarantining many of us find ourselves more anxious then normal as we prepare for re entry back to some form of normalcy and what this will look and feel like.
There is an effective treatment strategy called exposure therapy or real -life desensitization that is proven to provide significant relief for a range of anxiety disorders.
You may be a candidate if you can answer yes to these questions.
Are you willing to start facing situations that you have been avoiding and maybe missing out on for years?
Can you be committed in practicing the planned exposures on a regular basis?
In counseling we design your exposure therapy together. This is done by setting goals and looking at situations you would like to stop avoiding, creating an exposure hierarchy with small steps and parameters around what the intensity will look and feel like.
At Minds at Peace Therapy I am confident we can help support you in overcoming these obstacles, feeling better, and getting your life back with research proven treatment approaches. Contact Tara Kryman today to see if this is the right fit for you.
