Virtual Reality

Exposure treatment, with biofeedback, offered for worries and phobias.

Immersion in VR can also increase concentration and emotional regulation.

Our VRx Lab provides VR Exposure treatment designed for children and adolescents. The VRx Lab is in a private, outpatient counseling office.  Treatment is confidential.  Virtual Reality (VR) immersion is fun.  No longer any need to rely on imagination for exposure.  3D digital simulations captivate interest and activate your senses.

Research shows that Virtual Reality immersion exposure treatment WORKS!  This behavioral desensitization therapy has been used with success for over 20 years, to help reduce fears and phobias.  Now, with VR you can train to master fear, or to increase your concentration, emotional regulation, or relaxation, in comfort.

VR with Psious lets us place a person in a virtual environment.  VR is an immersive 3D simulation, a digitally produced world, where feared events can be added.  A person can learn to manage their target fear by developing positive thoughts and feelings of confidence while in the scary place.  Digital environments appear real.
