Dealing with Phobias

A phobia is an overwhelming, irrational fear of something (such as an animal, situation or a place.) The most common phobias are fear of heights, snakes and needles. But, we can develop a phobia of just about anything like a color or a food.

There are two parts to a phobia: an overwhelming fear or panic when faced with the phobic object or situation AND avoidance of situations where they may face that fear. Luckily, phobias respond quite well to psychotherapy. Cognitive behavior therapy has been proven to be very effective in helping clients overcome phobias. Should you live in the north Orlando area and suffer with a phobia, call Dana Nolan, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, at Healthy Living Counseling to make an appointment today.


Finding the right counselor is important, therapeutic relationships are built on trust, honesty and mutual respect between the therapist and the client. It is important to find a counselor with whom you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings AND who has the necessary expertise to help you reach your goals. For that reason, we offer a free brief phone consultation to ensure that we are the right fit for you. If you would like to discuss assertiveness training or some other issue(s), please don’t hesitate to contact Dana Nolan at 407-340-2474.
