Nicole Marek possesses experience and training in the treatment of anxiety disorders using a cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) approach. This approach involves understanding and challenging one's irrational thought patterns, maladaptive behaviours, and emotional responses in order to develop more effective coping strategies.

Because anxiety is such a strong motivator, you may be hesitant to challenge old behaviours for fear of negative consequences. CBT can help train you to test the evidence for your fears and will result in more adaptive functioning. Even though CBT is more structured that other therapeutic orientations, Nicole Marek will work at your pace to resolve your anxiety and panic. CBT is also a very effective therapy for general stress and perfectionism.

Here are some anxiety issues Nicole Marek is trained in treating:

-social phobia (social anxiety disorder)

-specific phobias

-generalized anxiety disorder

-panic disorder

-agoraphobia

-obsessive-complusive disorder

-perfectionism

-chronic pain
