We create a comfortable, friendly space to work through these anxieties and help you rebuild your confidence and energy for social situations. Call 917-737-9475 to start your social anxiety treatment, today.

What Is Social Anxiety?
Social anxiety disorder is a common mental health condition that affects a person’s ability to engage with and enjoy social situations. Social anxiety is more than “shyness.” It is a fear of social interactions with negative self-talk that can dramatically hurt your ability to engage in social connections.
This type of anxiety, which may also be called “social phobia,” has many different symptoms that include:
Fear of being judged.
Fear of being embarrassed/humiliated.
Negative self-talk about your social skills or likability.
Anxiety or panic attacks when faced with social situations.
Avoiding social situations in order to avoid these experiences.
Some people may also develop issues like depression or panic disorder as a result of this social phobia, and others may find it difficult to maintain relationships that they already have because of their self-confidence or self-esteem issues.
Social Anxiety in NYC and Brooklyn
Social anxiety disorder can affect anyone, anywhere. But here in New York City, social anxiety can often be more problematic. We live in the most populated city in the United States. Brooklyn has 2.7 million people alone. NYC is the “city that never sleeps,” with events and activities going on all the time.
It’s hard to have social anxiety, no matter where you live. But here in Brooklyn, social anxiety can be even more damaging, and those that live or work here often need additional support to feel comfortable with the hustle and bustle of the city.
Treatment for Social Anxiety
At Flourish Psychology, we believe in evidence based treatments. Led by psychologist Dr. Sadi Fox, we integrate many effective, well researched treatments into our therapy. Social anxiety responds best to cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT. But within our sessions, we’ll see if there are other treatments that may make more sense for your recovery. We are available to work through trauma, build coping skills, and more.
