Do you have panic attacks? Do you have obsessive thoughts? Is your anxiety impacting your relationships? Do you wish to find a way to cope with your anxiety?
Do you abuse drugs or alcohol most days? Do you use drugs to help you cope with stress or a past trauma? Is your addiction impacting your ability to work or to be in a relationship? Do you want to find a way to stop your addiction?
A phobia is an irrational fear of an object, situation, or living creature. A phobia can be a fear of animals or insects, blood, or flying in an airplane. A person will try anything to avoid the perceived danger
A panic attack is a sudden intense fear reaction accompanied by heart pounding, sweating, and difficulty breathing. For several minutes you can feel like you are losing control and having a heart attack.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Dan Sharir for about a year now. I’m in my late 20’s and suffer from social anxiety/social phobia. Dr. Sharir is very easy to talk to and has helped me a lot in this past year…. He is very knowledgeable and has taught me how to view life in a way that is less fearful. I would recommend Dr.Sharir to anyone who is seeking help. -V.G.
Dan Sharir has helped me tremendously . I am 57 and still dealing with an eating disorder, depression, self hate, social phobia and have been in therapy since my 20’s and on antidepressants. I have …seen Dan for about 3 months and he has taught me DBT skills to teach me how to live in the present day, how to live a happier, freer life, how to feel comfortable with myself. He is always available, very easy to talk with, says it like it is but in a way that helps me want to change and shows me how. -R.S.
I was referred to Dr. Sharir by a friend after I wasn’t happy with with my therapist I had been going too. I was a little nervous, but after the first appointment he made me feel very comforting a…nd calm. My anxiety is the biggest issue and he gave me amazing advice. I highly recommend Dr. Sharir for his professional approach and his deep knowledge. Most importantly he is just a very nice and warm person. -A.G.
Pandemic, protests, police, and politics — welcome to 2020. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, you probably feel both energized and confused at the same time. There’s so much to learn, to think about… so much that needs to be done. But this does not mean all of us can immediately jump up and get started.
Corporations have logos. People and products create brands. With protests, the entry point is often a slogan. Something as pithy as “save the whales” has become engrained within our pop-culture vocabulary.
Under the best of circumstances, a protest can be a stressful experience. It’s impossible to know who and how many will turn out. The marching or sign-holding or chanting may draw the attention of law enforcement officials or possibly, counter-protests. Passions are high all around. All of these factors are exaggerated in the face of a pandemic.
