Advanced CBT Treatment for
Chronic Anxiety Issues
Clients work 1 on 1 with anxiety specialist Dr. Shawn Nabors in a 6-12 session advanced CBT therapy program. This program is for chronic/unmanaged anxiety issues and is delivered via telehealth.
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.
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.
