    Treating Phobias &
    Social Anxiety

    Pop culture often makes light of certain phobias—but for those who have them, life can feel truly terrifying at times.

    Phobias are a type of anxiety disorder rooted in specific, excessive, unrealistic fears of particular objects, situations, people, or animals. They’re commonly divided into two categories—social phobias and specific phobias—and our clinicians treat both.

    Whether you’re terrified of social situations or afraid of something specific, you may feel very alone in your fears… but you don’t have to. We are here for you: both to listen to your worries and to help you overcome them.


    How We Help


    Therapy can help you feel less alone and isolated in your struggle with your phobia. We help you overcome your fears at your own pace.

    Medication management

    Phobias are a type of anxiety disorder, and sometimes medication can help. Our team can determine what’s best for you.

    Root Cause Psychiatry

    If your phobia is a symptom of something deeper, our Root Cause program can determine and address the underlying genetic and biologic causes. 


    Social anxiety or specific phobia?

    Social anxiety

    People with social anxiety disorder feel a paralyzing, irrational self-consciousness about having to interact in social situations.

    Specific phobias

    Specific phobias are an outsize fear of one particular thing that triggers an anxiety or panic attack. Examples include space, doctors, fear of flying, fear of heights, and more.
