Dr. Hofmann is considered a world authority on exposure therapy for the treatment of anxiety disorders.. I am a licensed psychologist (Lic. PSY 6331) who specializes in the treatment of ANXIETY DISORDERS & DEPRESSION including panic disorder,agoraphobia,social anxiety disorder,phobias,generalized anxiety disorder,and obsessive-compulsive disorder. I use cognitive-behavior therapy which has been validated in treatment outcome studies as the most effective treatment for all of the anxiety disorders. It has far superior long term results when compared to psychotropic medication and without the side effects and risks of medication. CBT is generally a short-term therapy which has the goal of getting people over their problem rather than keeping them in treatment on a long term basis. Feel free to contact me,and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
