Samantha mostly works with adults in their 20s and 30s suffering from anxiety. People come to her with a variety of problems including chronic worry, social anxiety, and panic attacks.
Through the use of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Samantha collaborates with her patients to develop coping strategies for reducing stress. One strategy she finds particularly useful and that she uses regularly to help patients reduce anxiety is a thought record. This exercise is a work sheet, which helps people to gain greater awareness into thinking patterns.
You might be wondering, "What kind of problems can we apply this to?" Samantha works with people in a variety of ways tailored to individual needs and schedules. Some people come for short-term work to deal with a fear of flying before an international trip, or anxiety triggered by a major life transition such as graduating from school or finding a new job. Others work on a more long-term basis to reduce worrying, social anxiety or repeated panic attacks.
Samantha’s office is a located just steps from the Borough Hall subway station in Brooklyn Heights. If you have any questions, please schedule a complimentary phone consultation with Samantha.
