My Approach to Helping
At Anxiety Experts of Santa Barbara, we understand that anxiety, panic, OCD and dysfunctional eating rob one's sense of freedom, confidence and self-worth. We treat these issues with a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) called Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP). Research has proven exposure therapy to be the most effective treatment for anxiety. My clients learn how their struggles to lower anxiety actually cause it to grow. The ERP methods help them master anxiety by eliminating the avoidance behaviors or compulsions that prolong their condition.
