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 reduction and an underfocus on skill development for distressing anxiety symptoms.

What is functional mental health
Treatment for chronic anxiety

Functional mental health treatment emphasizes treating the causes of chronic anxiety. Dr. Nabors focuses on restoring functioning through acquired skill development that empowers clients to skillfully and confidently manage distressing levels of anxiety rather than chronically focusing on anxiety symptom relief. This is done through the delivery of an advanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program.

What is Advanced
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy? 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for mental health conditions. However, it is not always delivered in an empirical way. Advanced CBT is a higher-quality of CBT that takes a structured scientific approach to its delivery.

A Scientific Approach 
To Addressing Unmanaged Anxiety
Cognitive Component for Thoughts

  2. Identify triggering/problematic belief systems.

  3. Implement effective mental techniques that offset triggering/problematic belief systems 

Cognitive Component for Emotions
  1. Create comprehensive emotional profiles of sensations/feelings when anxious.

  2. Identify most triggering/problematic sensations/feelings experienced when anxious.

  3. Implement effective mental techniques that allow one to be more flexible to most triggering sensations/feelings when anxious. 

Behavioral Component
  1. Create comprehensive lists of behaviors that reinforce triggering/problematic belief systems and sensations.

  2. Modify triggering problematic behaviors when anxious.

  3. Reinforce through strategic exposure new behaviors that help limit distressing cognitive & emotional experiences when anxious.
