About

Diana Damer, PhD

Anxiety is a necessary and important part of life. It protects you from harm and motivates you to succeed. Anxiety is problematic, however, when it becomes out of proportion to the situation and interferes with your life.

Sometimes the things you do to cope with your anxiety can make it worse. If something makes you anxious, you avoid it or engage in behaviors that help you feel less vulnerable.

The treatment that I provide is geared toward interrupting this vicious cycle by helping you gradually face your fears, eliminate safety behaviors, and build your confidence in a collaborative and supportive environment.

I specialize in treating the full spectrum of anxiety disorders, including: Specific Phobias (such as needles and roaches), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder. I utilize a cognitive-behavioral approach with an emphasis on exposure-based interventions. I often use perfectionism as a conceptual model for treating anxiety and related issues such as depression, eating disorders, body image issues, and anger.
