At The Anxiety Center we believe that optimal treatment begins with high quality assessment. That is why every child, or adult, that comes to our center undergoes comprehensive diagnostic and functional assessments. These assessments are conducted to solidify treatment targets and ensure adequate dosage. Attempting to treat a child or adult before understanding their needs is ineffective and at its worst can lead to frustration and hopelessness. Sometimes patients need a more specialized assessment to answer questions with regards to learning, attention, executive functioning, developmental disabilities, or cognitive and memory difficulties. Our testing program was designed for those children in mind and has the goal of informing intervention development and providing families with clear answers. At The Anxiety Center you will find that we deliver (4As) accelerated, accurate, accessible, and actionable reports written for your family and directly linked to your child's treatment needs.

Treatment ProgramsOur center runs four separate programs. The first is our assessment program which conducts neuropsychological, psychoeducational, executive functioning, and autism evaluations. We focus on delivering accurate, timely, and accessible reports written for the family and directly linked to the child's or adult's intervention needs. Secondly, we have an anxiety program which treats the full range of anxiety and OC spectrum disorders. Treatment protocols in the anxiety clinic are heavily based on current research in exposure therapy, but include other cognitive behavioral strategies based on the individual needs of the patient. Thirdly, we have a mood disorders program which treats depressive disorders, bipolar spectrum disorder, disruptive mood dysregulation disorder, suicidality and self-harm. Treatment in our mood program focuses on core CBT, mindfulness-based treatment, and behavioral activation. The level of integration of each facet depends on the child's needs and response to treatment. Finally, our co-occurring behavior program will take on cases of oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, ADHD, and autism related agression and social skills development. This program is grounded in behavior analysis with moderate integration of cognitive techniques when indicated. While we do welcome all applicants, it will be important to consider if our approach to treatment is a good match for your interest and skill set. We value the contributions of all those in the mental health field, but one of our core values is to deliver treatment that is firmly established in scientific research. If this value is in aligment with the way that you approach treatment and you are willing to engage in harnassing your skills in empirical treatment, then we believe you may be an incredible asset to our team.
