John also presents workshops on CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and treating anxiety disorders at various organizations including UCLA Extension. He also teaches psychology classes at both Pepperdine University and Antioch University.
He was inspired to treat individuals suffering from severe anxiety disorders and establish The Anxiety and Panic Disorder Center of Los Angeles, because he is also an anxiety sufferer since the age of eight. “It was not until I was in my mid 20’s that I was actually diagnosed with panic disorder. Not knowing what was truly wrong left me feeling broken and uncertain about my future. I experienced many years of fear, angst and self-loathing because nobody had any answers for me. I began to think I was going mad.”
The Center’s mission has been to offer safe, compassionate treatment to those suffering from panic disorder, social phobia, obsessive compulsive disorder and other anxiety related disorders, without the stigma that only weak or unstable people are affected.
The Anxiety and Panic Disorder Center of Los Angeles is located just off the Sunset Blvd exit on the 405 Freeway in West Los Angeles. Please call for a consultation
