Clinical Services

Our therapists are trained in the most current research on assessment and treatment in order to provide up-to-date services for both children and adults. We offer assessment and treatment for the following anxiety and related disorders:


We offer comprehensive diagnostic assessment for anxiety and related disorders. Our assessment typically consists of self-report questionnaires as well as an in-depth, structured diagnostic interview. The purpose of these assessments is to help us determine diagnosis, nature of anxiety difficulties, and prioritize treatment goals in order to provide you with appropriate treatment recommendations.


We provide treatments that have demonstrated efficacy for anxiety and related disorders, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and exposure and response prevention (ERP). CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented treatment designed to modify maladaptive thoughts and behaviors which contribute to anxiety suffering. ERP is a specific form of CBT designed to reduce obsessions and rituals in obsessive-compulsive disorder, and is widely regarded as the gold-standard intervention for this disorder. We offer our treatment in a variety of modalities, including individual, family-based, or intensive format. Typically individual and family-based treatment is provided once/week for 50 or 80 minute sessions, whereas intensive treatment often involves treatment multiple times per week for longer sessions. Treatment format and duration is individualized based on the client’s needs, and is determined during the initial assessment.


Our treatment is on a fee-for-service basis. Fees and treatment will be determined at the initial interview and are based on a sliding scale. We do not contract directly with insurance providers; however, these fees are generally reimbursable through many insurance plans. Please call your insurance company to find out if your plan reimburses.
