Virtual Reality Therapy


Research demonstrates that a skilled therapist can effectively treat a variety of problems with VRT.   We now offer VRT, when judged by the client's therapist to be appropriate, for a number of presenting problems. We most commonly use VRT, when clients are comfortable with this method of treatment, for:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Trauma
  • PTSD
  • Addiction
  • Autism
  • Pain Management

and specific phobias such as:

  • Flying
  • Heights
  • Bridges
  • Driving
  • Dogs
  • Insects (spiders, roaches, ect.)
  • Snakes
  • >Dental procedures
  • Blood
  • Needles
  • MRI
  • Darkness
  • Public speaking
  • Crowds
  • Social phobias
  • Test anxiety
  • Claustrophobia
  • Agoraphobia

VRT can also be effectively used in skills development, including but not limited to:

  • Social Skills Development
  • Handling bullying problems
  • Relapse prevention
  • Pain Management
  • Stress management
  • Relaxation
  • Mindfullness

 Virtual reality is a tool, not a treatment. All use of this tool will be in the context of psychotherapy/counseling with a therapist trained in the treatment of mental health issues as well as in the use of VRT.
