Are fears limiting the quality of your life? Are you a chronic worrier? Are you afraid of flying, driving, subways, heights, social situations, being alone, crowded spaces, public restrooms, being far away from home? Fears come in many forms, all can be successfully treated. I am a cognitive behavioral therapist (CBT) who specializes in the treatment of all anxiety disorders. I work with children, adolescents and adults both in my office and in the actual settings in which the phobic reactions occur. I also use CBT to treat depression and with clients who see me for life coaching.

The central premise underlying my work is that people must repeatedly enter the situations they fear, in manageable steps, to overcome their phobias. In order to do this, I give my clients the skills, knowledge and tools needed to face their fears. This process is called desensitization.

Having been affected by phobias for the early part of my adult life, I spent years trying various talk therapies that did not help. Frustrated and becoming hopeless, I found and recovered using the cognitive behavioral therapy I now use to help others.
