Fear of Flying

Aside from my various areas of mental health specialty, I am the creator of an internationally recognized approach to helping people overcome fear of flying. This is based on addressing the most relevant psychological and emotional factors that tend to reinforce fear of flying for people. As fear of flying has different origins for everyone, the way we work is personalized to your own needs and experience, and is designed for you whether you are unable to fly at all, or if you still do fly, but with significant anxiety.

You’ve likely read and heard about how safe flying is supposed to be, yet this rational reassurance doesn’t do much, if anything at all, to help your anxiety; you may know flying is safe, but still feel emotionally that air travel is fundamentally unsafe and that you are in sincere, tremendous danger any time you have to fly.

Our Work Together

In our work together, we will help you to feel safe in spite of certain unknowns and vulnerabilities, similarly to how you experience normalized unknowns and risks in your daily life (such as driving, for example). We focus on helping the mind and body normalize the flying experience as a whole so you can travel more comfortably, emotionally trusting that you are safe.

Another reason people tend to prefer this approach is because the way we work on this issue tends to have a positive impact on dealing with other daily life issues outside of flying as well. While what we’re doing is geared towards fear of flying, we approach this through your emotional process, which often helps with anxiety and general life as a whole. In addition to fear of flying, I have specialties in various other life areas (such as general anxieties, relationships, depression, migraines, and more). Therefore, when emotional and life struggles come up that could use our attention as well, there is room for these conversations to become integrated into our work here.

I have seen many people in my practice who once felt tortured and limited by this fear — similarly to how you may feel now. It is possible to feel relief. The vast majority of people I work with make progress with this approach. Many are either no longer are affected by flying, or actually become excited by flying. While it may be hard to believe this can happen from where you are now, I have seen people go from either flying with tremendous anxiety and fear, or not flying at all, to now traveling frequently with a newfound sense of empowerment, liberation, and freedom.
