PHOBIA AND TRAUMA CLINIC

PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION RESEARCH AND COUNSELING CLINIC

 
General Information
Description of ServiceOffers unique and technologically advanced treatments for patients whose fears inhibit their quality of life. The clinic has also successfully treated clients with post-traumatic stress disorder, a condition caused by an unusually devastating and/or tragic experience. Some common phobias treated at the clinic include: travel on airplanes, trains; public speaking; animals; heights; post-traumatic stress disorder; experiences in a war environment; an accident on an airplane or in a car; unexpected and devastating tragedies, such as the events of Sept. 11 and rape or sexual abuse. Treatment of phobia and PTSD is accomplished by the use of exposure therapy. In exposure therapy, under safe, controlled clinic conditions, patients are immersed in the situations they have long avoided, or asked to confront the traumas they experienced in their lives. Therapists simulate the environments that trigger a phobic response so the patients can learn to better manage their fears. Therapists use Imaginal exposure; virtual reality exposure and in-vivo exposure. The Saltzman Center is open Monday through Saturday. All therapy services are by appointment only. Fees are set at the time therapy is initiated. All services are provided in a professional manner and conform to the ethical standards of the American Psychological Association. Information will not be released without the informed written consent of the client, except where mandated by law or in life-threatening or abusive situations. Call for more detailed information.
