What its Like Working with an Anxiety Specialist

What its Like Working with an Anxiety Specialist

Chronic Anxiety 
Needs a specialized approach

People with chronic anxiety typically take twice as long (5-10 years) to find effective help than someone with chronic depression (3-5 years). The persistence of chronic anxiety typically happens from an over-focus on symptom management and an under-focus on skill development for distressing anxiety symptoms.

Advanced CBT
Treatment for chronic anxiety

Advanced CBT treatment for chronic anxiety emphasizes treating causes not symptoms. Dr. Nabors delivers structured CBT anxiety treatment that focuses on restoring functioning through acquired skill development. Clients are empowered to skillfully and confidently respond to distressing levels of anxiety rather than chronically focusing on anxiety symptom management.
