Welcome to The Anxiety Center, where we are dedicated to offering specialized and compassionate care to individuals struggling with primary anxiety, OCD, and related disorders. Our approach is deeply rooted in behavioral therapy, emphasizing the proven methodologies of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In our center, patients engage closely with skilled behavior therapists in individual therapy sessions, focusing on creating customized behavior plans. These sessions, typically held five times a week, are complemented by weekly family therapy, acknowledging the significant role of familial support in the treatment process. We also incorporate educational and active treatment groups, alongside intensive ERP sessions led by our trained clinicians, to provide a comprehensive, immersive treatment experience. The Anxiety Center is committed to guiding each patient through their journey of recovery, ensuring a supportive, understanding, and effective treatment environment.
The Cornerstones of Care
At The Anxiety Center, our foundational approach to care is encapsulated in our Enhanced Treatment Program (ETP), a comprehensive and tailored strategy designed to address the unique needs of each individual.
At The Anxiety Center, Measurement-Based Care forms a critical part of our commitment to accountability in treatment outcomes. By frequently monitoring patient symptoms and feedback through secure digital platforms, we ensure that our treatments are continually adapted and refined. This proactive, data-driven approach not only enhances patient outcomes but also reflects our dedication to holding ourselves accountable for the effectiveness of our care.
Personalized Treatment Strategy
We tailor our therapy packages to each patient's unique needs, recognizing the importance of individualized treatment paths. This approach involves differentiating therapy types, intensities, and frequencies, ensuring that each patient's therapy is precisely aligned with their specific challenges and progress in dealing with anxiety or OCD. By employing a range of evidence-based techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention, we ensure that each patient receives a personalized, effective therapeutic experience.
Integrated Care and Team
The Anxiety Center, our focus is on whole-person treatment, aiming to provide more than just symptom relief. We strive to give our patients a holistic health perspective, a sense of purpose, and a sustainable wellness plan for post-treatment life. Our multidisciplinary Integrated Care Team – including behavioral therapists, family therapists, and psychiatrists – works collaboratively to address biological, psychological, and life purpose aspects. This approach ensures comprehensive care that encompasses all facets of our patients' well-being.
Advanced Treatment Techniques
At The Anxiety Center, we emphasize the use of cutting-edge, evidence-based treatments, ensuring our patients receive the most advanced care. Our teams engage in ongoing professional development at renowned institutions like IOCDF and ADAA, and we rigorously evaluate quality metrics to stay abreast of innovations in the field. This commitment to continual improvement is ingrained in our culture, reflecting our dedication to providing expert-implemented, up-to-date treatment methods for anxiety and OCD.
We are committed to making high-quality mental health care accessible to everyone.

Our efforts are driven by the conviction that quality care for anxiety and OCD should be a right, not a privilege. This dedication to accessibility and affordability is integral to our mission, ensuring that all individuals have the opportunity to receive the care they need.

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.

This program is grounded in behavior analysis with moderate integration of cognitive techniques when indicated.
