Virtual Reality Therapy

Dr. Heafey and his team offer integrated concierge psychology services to provide personalized and specialized care. If you struggle with anxiety and phobias, you’re not alone. Fortunately, today many holistic treatment methods that were once considered experimental are now becoming more widely available.

Virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) elicits emotional responses similar to those provoked by real-life situations. The senses of immersion and presence are characteristic components of this kind of technology. Our VR solution gives us the opportunity to work with difficult-to-reproduce real-life situations. VR technology helps us to hold personalized virtual reality sessions to suit the patient’s individual needs within the safety of our offices located in San Francisco, Oakland and Corte Madera.

The potential of virtual reality as a tool in psychotherapy interventions and evaluations in clinical practice was discovered more than 30 years ago. Research in psychology already provides a broad empirical base that includes virtual reality or augmented reality protocols, with proven therapeutic efficiency (Botella et al., 2012). Virtual reality exposure therapy enables gradual, individualized, controlled and immersive exposure, so therapists can easily implement care that may be more acceptable to patients than in vivo exposure.

Call us at (650) 993-9321 to reserve your private session. We are available to meet with you on weekends for in-home sessions and everyday at our office locations in San Francisco, Oakland and Corte Madera.
