Phobia therapy

Phobia therapy can assist individuals with overcoming their fears and leading more manageable lives.

Uncontrollable, irrational and persistent fear of a specific objects, situations, or activities can be paralyzing to phobia sufferers. The fear can be so great that some individuals go to extreme lengths to avoid its source.

Phobia therapy can assist individuals with overcoming their fears and leading more manageable lives. Modalities include in-vivo exposure, where patients, in the presence of a behavioral health professional, are slowly introduced to the source of their fears in a safe, controlled and supportive environment. Virtual reality technology can also be utilized in phobia treatment, using cutting-edge technology combined with other psychiatric interventions.
