How This Evidence-Based
Anxiety Treatment Program Works 

How The Program Works

Adaptive Anxiety Therapy is specialized mental health therapy for anxiety. However, it is not traditional talk therapy. Rather, it is a structured and targeted mental health treatment program designed to teach advanced cognitive behavioral therapy skills for anxiety disorders/issues. Clients in this program work closely with anxiety specialist Dr. Shawn Nabors as they progress through the four stages of the program.

Coaching Component

In between sessions, clients receive coaching from Dr. Nabors via SMS messaging.  Clients are able to ask anxiety-related questions and receive brief anxiety coaching for difficult situations, or for general curiosities about anxiety concepts or techniques.
