Mental Health and Wellness
Solara Health provides a comfortable, caring environment for clients to address their social anxiety, including their experiences, symptoms, and triggers. This environment begins with our clinicians, who provide expert, compassionate care to all clients. Our mixture of individual psychotherapy, group therapy, and holistic therapies provides clients with comprehensive care, helping them gain insight into the causes of their anxiety and devise a treatment plan that is individualized, specific, and effective, helping clients overcome the negative effects of social anxiety and lead healthy, happy lives.
Isolation to Integration
Social anxiety, which is a greater-than-normal fear of social situations, can feel inescapable. This particular kind of anxiety engrains itself so deeply into your thoughts and feelings that it alters your behavior, ultimately changing the way you feel about and experience the world. Specific symptoms of society anxiety vary from individual to individual, but can include any number of the following:
Extreme self-consciousness and nerves during social interactions
Disproportionate worrying about future social interactions
Physical symptoms of anxiety, including blushing, shaking, or sweating, and/or worry about manifesting these physical symptoms during a social interaction
Excessive fear of being watched and/or judged, or of being humiliated
Compulsively reviewing past social interactions, going over your behaviors and feeling ashamed of your perceived social mistakes
Minimizing social interactions by avoiding people as much as possible
These symptoms can contribute to powerful feelings of loneliness and isolation for clients with social anxiety. Such feelings can be intensely disruptive to day-to-day life, causing withdrawal from social situations, including work obligations, or even interactions with family and friends. But it is important to remember that seven percent of the population also has social anxiety, and you are never alone in your struggle.
Solara Health seeks to help clients overcome this isolation. We understand that the unique nature of social anxiety can make it difficult to seek treatment, and as such, we have fostered a calm, comfortable, and understanding environment for clients that promotes open conversation. As experts in social anxiety, our clinicians know how to create therapeutic experiences that are conducive to progress: our small group environment will minimize social intimidation while allowing clients to practice anxiety management skills in a supportive, judgement-free environment. In turn, clients leave Solara with concrete methods for managing their social anxiety, allowing them to fully participate in social situations and lead fulfilling lives.
While our clients make considerable and rapid improvements, anxiety disorders are often long-term conditions. Understanding this through years of experience, Solara Health provides the entire spectrum of care from in-residence to outpatient to transitional living to continuing, customized case management of long-term aftercare planning to ensure maximum, long-term success. Solara Health is committed and dedicated to freeing our clients from the clutches of social anxiety, and each of our programs is created to ensure this.

What Our Clients Say
I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.
The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.
The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.
We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.
I have never felt better than I do now, since completing your program. The truly caring and supportive staff and the intensive program changed my life. What a neat place to stay for treatment - I love Pacific Beach! I have learned skills and behavior to move forward with my life thanks to you.
Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.
The Solara Treatment Program was a life-changing experience for me. To be able to heal in such a beautiful, peaceful environment, with such a terrific treatment team, was so amazingly positive. I have found my true self, again. I thank you and my family thanks you for helping me become the person I was meant to be.
The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed
Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.
Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.
