By definition, a phobia is a “an exaggerated, usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation.” This phobia may be something you have dealt with your whole life, or a single experience might have brought about a terror of similar circumstances that has a crippling impact on your day to day life. It is always all right to be afraid, but it is never all right to live in fear. Roy Spiegel, MSW, specializes in phobia treatment in Bergen County that can help you take control of what you have a fear of and get back to your life.
Some of the most common phobias people have include:
- Fear of spiders (arachnophobia)
- Fear of snakes (ophidiophobia)
- Fear of heights (acrophobia)
- Fear of open spaces (agoraphobia)
- Fear of thunder and lightening (astraphobia)
- Fear of enclosed spaces and tight areas (claustrophobia)
Roy Spiegel has twenty years of private practice doing phobia treatment in NJ, and his philosophy has always been that every person has individual needs that are unique to him or her and must be accommodated as such. There is no “formula” for Bergen County phobia treatment, but rather every patient is always treated as an individual.
