Experience Virtual Reality for yourself. Dr. McMahon will bring a virtual reality headset so you can personally experience three-dimensional, immersive virtual reality. You can “fly” on a virtual plane, “ride” in a virtual elevator or car, address a virtual “audience”, or just relax on a private “island.”
Virtual reality is a breakthrough in treating fear and anxiety problems, helping people overcome fears of flying, heights, public speaking, driving, elevators, enclosed spaces, BART, bugs, and more. It makes treatment faster and easier.
