In this episode Erica and Dr Barr begin by discussing MRIs and claustrophobia. Erica recently had to get an MRI done and was able to find an incredible alternative to make the experience non-claustrophobic. 

Also in this episode… Ever wonder how a licensed clinical psychologist and anxiety specialist treats anxiety in their office? Erica asks Dr. Barr questions such as: 

  • When is it appropriate to recommend a patient get medication?
  • What key things do you look for to determine if someone is having true mental illness or a bout with severe anxiety?
  • Why the difference between feelings of unreality (depersonalization) and actually losing touch with reality are so important to identify as a professional.

Also…How Dr. Barr treats those who are dealing with specific phobias… including a young woman with a dog phobia who Dr. Barr was hired to help on the show “The Dog Whisperer.”
