CBT for Anxiety Disorders

Panic Disorder (PD) with or without Agoraphobia

PD is a disorder that involves the experience of panic attacks and preoccupation with the fear of having another attack.  This approach provides education to the client about the disorder, teaches clients to ride the wave of anxiety and gradually increases the client’s exposure to feared sensations and situations.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

GAD is a disorder that is characterized by persistent excessive worry about every day things that interferes with daily living. Clients with GAD often anticipate disaster and are overly concerned about money, health, family, work or other issues.  The treatment provides education about the disorder, relaxation strategies, cognitive restructuring strategies, and exposure to feared stimuli.
