Social anxiety disorder is a mental health condition that can be very debilitating and persistent. People with this disorder tend to feel extreme fear when going out in public and interacting with others. This fear tends to control people’s lives and affects how they go to school, work, or do daily activities. Symptoms can include feelings of humiliation and self-consciousness, an upset stomach, sweating, rapid heart rate, and finding it difficult to speak or make eye contact. Social anxiety is one of the most common mental health disorders and there are around 5.3 million people who suffer from it in the United States. Treatment for this disorder is usually antidepressants, but not everyone wants to take them because of the way it makes them feel.

We are seeking participants who are between the ages of 18-75 years old. The study will last approximately 16 weeks and include 9 visits to our office.
