We are doing this study to see if our new telehealth Virtual Reality clinic is as helpful as standard telehealth when providing therapy for people with strong fear of snakes, dogs, or spiders. This study will take place over three months and include spending 30 minutes during a first visit completing a few questionnaires and a short interview; participating in 12, weekly 1-hour therapy sessions remotely; spending about 30 minutes a few days per week practicing skills learned during therapy; and spending 20 minutes completing questionnaires half-way through and at the end of treatment. You will complete 13 study visits including 12 therapy sessions. All questionnaires will be completed during session. You will be randomly assigned to the VR group or the Telehealth group during the first study visit.
