Effective Tools for Anxiety Reduction

Anxiety can affect every facet of our lives making our world feel smaller and smaller. Many of our clients who otherwise perform at extremely high levels are held back back by lingering anxiety that pervades their minds.

We give clients the tools to reduce their anxiety helping them reduce indecision and better navigate their day. Anxiety can also come with physical symptoms that become an additional obstacle. Intestinal distress, headaches, muscle tension and chest discomfort are just some of the physical symptoms of anxiety that we help our clients regulate and reduce to help them feel more free.

Located in midtown Manhattan next to Grand Central Station, Behavior Therapy of New York provides psychological tools to treat anxiety by combining cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and biofeedback approaches.
