Our goal at Restorative Brain Clinic is to help you conquer your anxiety once and for all. Although this condition comes in many different forms, we offer a range of anxiety treatment options for patients living in the greater Kansas City, MO area. Treatment options can be tailored to each patient’s specific symptoms and needs.
Helping You Relax and Conquer Your Fears
Typical treatment plans involve anxiety counseling sessions that allow you to understand why you react a certain way to specific situations or people. By creating a better understanding of the phobias that lead to anxiety, we can help you develop better mechanisms for coping. Counseling sessions may either be one-on-one appointments with a licensed therapist or with a group of others experiencing similar thoughts and feelings.
In addition to anxiety counseling, a patient may also be prescribed medication to help relieve their symptoms. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an alternative treatment for anxiety which may appeal to patients interested in treatment without medication.
