DAVID CARBONELL, PHD

Effective treatment methods for anxiety disorders were just starting to enter the mainstream when David Carbonell, Ph.D., began his career as a psychologist over 25 years ago. He’s been helping people overcome fears and phobias, and developing new treatment strategies, ever since. Blending humor, compassion, and acceptance with cognitive behavioral methods, Dr. Carbonell, a sought after presenter, has taught his unique treatment methods to more than 5,000 mental health professionals at workshops across the country.

Dr. Carbonell is the “Coach” at www.anxietycoach.com, a popular self help site, as well as the author of The Worry Trick (New Harbinger Publications, 2016) and Panic Attacks Workbook (Ulysses Press, 2004). He was one of the first psychologists in the U.S. to develop a group practice devoted solely to the treatment of anxiety disorders, and maintains a clinical practice in Chicago. He’s the founding member of The Therapy Players, an improvisational comedy troupe of psychotherapists, and a frequent speaker at annual conferences of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. He has a unique blend of CBT, ACT, Metacognitive Therapy to offer people with anxiety disorders, and the professionals who treat them, and it’s his goal for you to leave armed with an approach, and numerous specific tools, that you can use the next day.

Clinicians rave about David’s guiding formulation of the Anxiety Trick, the simple, humorous language with which he describes it, and the way he helps you translate it into practical, powerful interventions. Join him for a day and go home ready to use innovative new strategies for helping anxious clients, bypassing many of the usual obstacles to progress as you guide your clients to recovery.
