Approximately 1 out of 10 Utah and Florida adults struggle with social anxiety disorder (social phobia) While some individuals may be able to hide their struggles from the people they love, others experience physical symptoms such as nausea, blushing, or shaking. At times, you may even feel like it’s impossible to get through normal activities without breaking into a sweat or feeling as if you’re about to have a panic attack.
Fortunately, social anxiety disorder symptoms can be helped with the aid of cognitive behavioral therapy and the assistance of a good social anxiety therapist. At The Dell Center for Therapy in Summit County, Utah and Palm Beach County, Florida, our counselors understand the struggles and barriers that social anxiety cause our clients. We also work with individuals that suffer from generalized anxiety, anxiety attacks, phobias, and other mental health concerns.
Treating social anxiety isn’t always possible with a medication. Learning how to see things differently and process what’s around you can give you the power to work through social settings and find a happier, healthier way to live life. As licensed social anxiety therapists in Jupiter/Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and Park City, Utah, it’s our goal to work closely with you to identify triggers and modify how you respond to them. If you’re finding it difficult or impossible to get through activities such as speaking to co-workers, attending parties around Park City or Palm Beach Gardens
with your friends, make trips to the grocery store, or other day-to-day social interactions, we’re here to help.
You may need to consult with a social anxiety therapist if you struggle with situations such as:
When it’s More Than Social Anxiety
Sometimes there’s more to social anxiety than what meets the eye. Your personal and family relationships may be affected as well. If it’s a teenager or child that’s suffering from the condition, it’s natural for the parents to want to help. Our social anxiety therapists in Jupiter/Palm Beach Gardens, and Park City work closely with couples, families, and teens to find a place of peace and healing for everyone involved.
It’s not uncommon for individuals with social anxiety disorder to also have depression, or vice-versa. Often, a good Utah or Florida social anxiety therapist may need to work closely with you and your physician to find a balance of therapeutic and counseling techniques that work with your medication, to help you find the best combination of treatments.
Social anxiety isn’t restricted to certain types of settings. It might hit you at any time, even in a place where you feel close to the people around you. The Dell Center makes it easy for you to get social anxiety counseling, because we’ll meet you where you’re most comfortable. Do you have a favorite local coffee shop? Would you prefer to talk over a walk at a Salt Lake City or Palm Beach Gardens park? Hike a Park City trail? Maybe you would rather have an online counseling session via Skype or FaceTime. Our Florida and Utah social anxiety counselors are happy to accommodate your preferences and comfort level.
As your psychotherapy progresses, it’s possible to work on exposure-based cognitive behavior therapy with the assistance of our therapist right alongside of you. Through role-playing, you can learn coping skills and survival mechanisms that make it possible to live in the world around you.
