We provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help people with OCD, Anxiety Disorders (e.g., phobias, panic attacks), and anxiety due to illness and life events. We also treat issues that come along with anxiety including depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, sexual dysfunction, trauma, marital or relationship issues, and school/work difficulties.
We have a niche specialty is treating OC Spectrum Disorders and practice Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). This is the gold standard of treatment for OCD.
Since anxiety disorders differ considerably, therapy is tailored to your individual needs. Two people with the exact same diagnosis can present very differently. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is not a cookie cutter approach. We work toward clear goals using specific research based techniques, but adjust based on your unique symptoms and needs. Since you are provided with tools and information right away, you can experience short term relief while working toward long term results and change.
