In Deep with Angie Coiro: Robin Zasio

  • Kepler's 1010 El Camino Real Menlo Park, CA, 94025 United States

One psychologist called it "Election Stress Disorder"; others call it "The Trump Effect". Before, during, and after the election, mental health professionals nationwide reported increased anxiety in their clients - and anxiety has terrible, even life-shortening effects on the human body and mind. What's the healthiest way to cope with anxiety, and what special challenges arise when that stress derives from world events? Dr. Robin Zasio visits In Deep with insight and advice. The hour will also touch on her work in reality TV - Hoarders and My Extreme Animal Phobia.

Dr. Robin Zasio specializes in cognitive therapy in the treatment of anxiety and compulsive behaviors, and the founder of The Anxiety Treatment Center,  The Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center and The Compulsive Hoarding Center, all in Sacramento. Dr. Zasio is a featured doctor on the Emmy Nominated A &E hit series HOARDERS, Host of My Extreme Animal Phobia on Animal Planet, and author of THE HOARDER IN YOU: How to Live a Happier, Healthier, Uncluttered Life. She's a past president of the Sacramento Valley Psychological Association and currently serves on the Scientific Advisory Board, Clinical Advisory Board, and the Speakers Bureau for the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation.
