Social Anxiety Disorder

It is common for people to feel shy or uneasy in unfamiliar or new social situations. You may be nervous about making new friends or meeting a new romantic acquaintance. For some, however, these feelings can be debilitating and make it nearly impossible to put themselves in social situations. It can also affect their work life if they need to meet with clients or speak publicly.

If you become nervous in crowded rooms, constantly worry about embarrassing yourself in social situations, have a difficult time introducing yourself to people, or prefer to avoid social situations altogether you may have social anxiety disorder. This can range from some nerves and sweaty palms in minor cases to crippling fear and panic attacks in more severe cases. No matter the severity of your case, therapy can help you to manage your anxiety in social situations. With the help of role playing, public speaking exercises, and relaxation techniques you can eliminate or limit your social anxiety. We can help you build confidence and increase your comfort level. Call me today to find out more. I understand how social anxiety can limit you from achieving your personal or professional goals. Through a variety of cognitive behavioral techniques, including role playing, assertion training, relaxation therapy, hypnotherapy, cognitive restructuring, and mindfulness I can help you to overcome your fears and help you move forward in life.

    * Dating/Romance
    * Public speaking
