Pacific CBT, in conjunction with National Social Anxiety Center - San Francisco (NSAC - SF), operates an extensive network of treatment services for those challenged by social anxiety. The process begins with a brief phone consultation. You will speak to one of our therapists to determine if scheduling an individual consultation and assessment is in your best interest.  

The individual consultation and assessment occurs over one to three 60-minute sessions. The therapist will use assessment measures and an interview to collect your history and to learn more about you. He or she will present treatment recommendations. You will collaboratively determine the best course of action taking into consideration the availability of services and your resources.

Pacific CBT/NSAC - SF currently offer the following services:

  • Consultation and Assessment Services
  • Introductory Workshop on the Basics of Social Anxiety and Group Therapy
  • Individual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy using the latest research findings and techniques
