At The Center for Stress and Anxiety Management, our psychologists have years of experience. Unlike many other providers, our clinicians truly specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety and related problems. Our mission is to apply only the most effective short-term psychological treatments supported by extensive scientific research. We are located in Rancho Bernardo, Carlsbad, and Mission Valley.

Social Anxiety Disorder/Social Phobia/Extreme Shyness

According to the National Library of Medicine, social anxiety (or social phobia) is a persistent and irrational fear of situations that may involve scrutiny or judgment by others, such as parties and other social events.

People with social phobia become very anxious and self-conscious in everyday social situations. They can worry for days or weeks before a dreaded situation. This fear may become so severe that it interferes with work, school, and other ordinary activities, and can make it hard to make and keep friends. Although many people with social phobia realize that their fears about being with people are excessive or unreasonable, they are unable to overcome them on their own.

Social phobia can be limited to one situation (such as talking to people, eating or drinking, or writing on a blackboard in front of others). Or, it may be so broad (such as in generalized social phobia) that the person experiences anxiety around almost everyone other than family members.

Physical symptoms that often occur with social phobia include:

  • Blushing

  • Difficulty talking

  • Nausea

  • Profuse sweating

  • Trembling

Some of the most common fears of people with social phobia include:

  • Attending parties and other social occasions

  • Eating, drinking, and writing in public

  • Meeting new people

  • Speaking in public

  • Using public restroom

WHAT CSAM DOES NOT TREAT: Please note that while anxiety disorders can co-occur with other concerns, at CSAM we specifically focus on treatment of anxiety disorders. We do not treat clients with suicidal ideation, self-harm (e.g. cutting, burning, scratching, or similar), substance abuse disorders, or bipolar disorder. For symptoms and conditions such as these, involving significant emotion dysregulation, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a superior treatment option. For recommendations for providers in the area who specialize in these issues and in DBT, please see our referrals page (Resources): https://www.csamsandiego.com/usefulresources *
