Jasmine, what I have found to be the most successful treatment for specific phobias is called "systematic desensitization." Basically this technique calls for a list of different levels of fear related to specific stimuli, treated one at a time, moving up as you go. There is more to this, of course, than this simple explanation, but any competent behavioral therapist should be able to help you to use this technique. You can find more information by typing "systematic desensitization" into any search engine. If completed properly, it has a very high success rate. Good Luck!
