Building Treatment Plans Around Individual Strengths and Needs

When using virtual reality (VR) to treat anxiety, trauma, or fear, it is important to address the unique circumstances and needs of every individual. Specific environmental triggers need to be identified for each person, while the therapist also learns about the history, context, beliefs, and thoughts that shape the realities of the people they are helping. As individuals work at a guided, yet self-determined, pace through the virtual environments, they are able to gradually overcome, and eventually master, the difficulties they are facing in the areas of their lives they have sought help with.

At VR Therapy, we use an open, constantly evolving VR system that is capable of recreating the sights, sounds, scents, and feelings needed to address the unique challenges faced by each person we work with. Additionally, we continually review current peer-reviewed research in an effort to stay abreast of the latest evidence-based approaches to treatment in all the areas we work with. As we begin our work here at VR Therapy, we are committed to helping any individual or family who is seeking help in our community.
