Dr. Clarissa Gosney, PsyD

Licensed Psychologist (PSY 29633)

I help children and adults overcome the mountain of anxiety and traumatic experiences that have left them feeling defeated.  I do this by providing individuals and families the tools they need to conquer anxiety, regardless of where or how it presents itself.  I help my clients face their fears head-on through exposure therapy, while helping them apply the tools they learned in session to help manage their anxiety.  In doing so, they can prove to themselves that many situations are not as frightening as their anxiety makes them seem.  My goal is for my clients to experience the long-term benefits of hands-on, short-term therapy. This way, they learn how they can conquer life’s mountains independently without feeling dependent on long-term treatment.
