A phobia, (from the Greek word for fear), is an irrational, persistent fear of certain situations, objects, activities, or persons. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive, unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Phobias are a form of anxiety, often debilitating in nature. Some phobias can be linked back to a specific event, but some develop over time as a result of an anxiety going unchecked, or sometimes as a way of avoiding a stressful problem.

I can help you overcome your phobia. Together we can explore the reason(s) for your phobia, and find a way for you to rid yourself of the panic and fear.

It can be difficult to even think about your phobia, let alone confront it. You might think it silly, almost embarrassed to talk about. Whatever your fear, you can rest assured that you will receive considerate, sympathetic care and treatment. Contact me today and take that first step to conquering your phobia.
