Phone Sessions for Social Anxiety Disorder

answered 06:36 PM EST, Wed March 07, 2012
Hi Jill,

I have a friend who needs guidance regarding social anxiety disorder.

She is a really nice lady and is looking for somebody to talk to (on the phone).
In particular she is looking for a Christian guide, counselor or sponsor and a 12 Step background would also help.

Do you do that, or do you know anybody who does?

Thanks in advance.

Is she looking for weekly therapy or someone to just talk to one time? Is her social anxiety preventing her from driving to a therapy session in her city? There are many online links to find a therapist in her area. Different therapist profiles might say whether they do phone sessions or whether they specialize in social anxiety. You can try "Psychology Today" or "Good Therapy" for therapists in her area. I think face to face sessions for social anxiety are very helpful.
