What type of treatment do you use? We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and/or Exposure Therapy, as research has shown that these are the most effective approaches for treating anxiety disorders. In exposure therapy, patients systematically increase tolerance to feared situations in order to reduce distress. Exposures can be conducted as imaginal (i.e., imagining a feared situation), in vivo (i.e., in real life) and interoceptive (i.e., confronting feared physical sensations). By doing exposures, you will learn that feared consequences are unlikely to come true and that your anxiety will eventually go down even after facing anxiety-provoking situations. In addition to exposure therapy, we will teach you techniques to manage thoughts that contribute to anxiety.

Do you work with children with anxiety disorders? We work with children (8+) with anxiety disorders, and use Coping Cat, a research-backed, CBT-based program for treating children with anxiety.
