Social Anxiety Therapy

Understanding Social Anxiety Disorder

Living with social anxiety disorder can be overwhelming and isolating. It’s characterized by an intense fear of social situations, making it difficult to interact with others and engage in day-to-day activities. At Cornell & Associates, we recognize that social anxiety disorder is not simply shyness or nervousness; rather, it’s a psychological condition that can significantly impact one’s quality of life. With that in mind, our anxiety therapists are trained to understand and address the unique needs of individuals with social anxiety disorder.

Personalized Social Anxiety Therapy

At Cornell & Associates, we believe in the power of tailored therapy approaches. We understand that each individual has unique experiences and needs, which is why we develop personalized treatment plans for every client. Our social anxiety therapy sessions provide a safe space for you to express your thoughts and feelings without judgment. And using evidence-based therapeutic techniques, we work collaboratively with you to identify the root causes of your social anxiety and develop effective coping strategies to manage your symptoms.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

One of the most effective approaches for treating social anxiety disorder is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Our therapists are well-versed in utilizing CBT techniques to help clients reframe their negative thoughts and beliefs about social situations. By challenging and replacing these unhelpful thoughts, you can develop a more positive and realistic outlook on social interactions. Through gradual exposure to feared situations, we support you in building confidence and developing effective social skills.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

In addition to CBT, we also incorporate Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques into our social anxiety therapy. MBSR helps individuals cultivate awareness of their thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations in the present moment, without judgment. By developing mindfulness skills, you can learn to manage anxiety-provoking situations with greater ease and resilience. Our therapists will also guide you through mindfulness exercises and strategies, empowering you to embrace challenging social situations with a calm and centered mindset.
