Are You Struggling With Social Phobia?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Social Phobia

Social phobia is when a person experiences great fear or anxiety when around others in social situations. Known as Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), social phobia can lead to missed social commitments or interactions, feeling disconnected, or increased anxiety.

Available Treatment Options

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) effectively treats SAD and other anxiety disorders. CBT for SAD includes addressing irrational beliefs, such as a person’s feelings of embarrassment or inadequacy. Addressing and disputing these unhelpful patterns of thought leads to changes in behavior. Counselors may also encourage self-inquiry so a person can gain confidence and self-assuredness. Therapists can also work with people to practice social skills that help guide them in social situations.
