At the Anxiety Disorders Treatment Center, we evaluate and provide specialized treatment to individuals experiencing emotional difficulties associated with all forms of anxiety. We offer brief, symptom-focused, cognitive-behavioral treatment in a confidential and supportive environment. Research studies provide compelling evidence that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is effective in the treatment of the anxiety disorders. Our staff has extensive training and experience in providing this treatment to our clients.

Here at the Anxiety Disorders Treatment Center, you can receive a variety of treatment. We offer:
- Diagnostic consultation
- Individual treatment
- Group treatment
- Intensive two-day groups
In the diagnostic consultation, we will evaluate the symptoms, precipitating events, personality traits & family history relevant to anxiety disorders. If treatment is recommended, we will describe specific therapeutic approaches which offer the greatest potential benefit. If psychological treatment is not recommended, we will suggest relevant self-help techniques. We will make referrals for medical evaluations and/or medication assessment if needed.
We tailor an evidence-based treatment program for each client's specific needs. Our therapists take care to clarify each step of the process so that the client is an active, informed and full partner in a collaborative healing process. Components of the treatment may include education about patterns of thinking and acting that can reduce distress, mindfulness, relaxation training, self-management skills during anxiety-provoking moments and specific practice assignments. Our therapists utilize cutting-edge cognitive and behavioral treatments (CBT), including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Processing Therapy.
Individual treatment: the client meets individually with the psychologist for 45 minutes. Frequency of appointments is decided by the client and psychologist.
Group treatment: clients with similar problems work together with a psychologist in 90-minute sessions.
Two-day intensive treatment: This group treatment, led by Dr. Wilson, is designed to quickly provide guidance for clients who are already in treatment with other therapists or who are traveling from distant locations for treatment.
