The Anxiety Clinic
The Anxiety Clinic is designed to assist individuals and their families with the often-debilitating effects of anxiety disorders and stress related reactions. The clinic incorporates well-researched assessment and treatment methods that are therapeutically effective and cost efficient. There are many types of anxiety that can be successfully treated. The clinic psychologists have years of clinical experience working with a vast array of human problems.
Clients referred to the Anxiety Clinic will receive a comprehensive assessment to determine the nature of their concerns. This may include a detailed history, behavioral measures, cognitive measures, and psychological tests. The purpose of this assessment process is to establish the nature of the problem, the factors that influence its appearance, the best treatment option, and to assist in an ongoing evaluation of our interventions. Psychological reports may be prepared at the client’s request.
Treatment for anxiety focuses on resolving problematic beliefs and feelings, and/or somatic responses (sensations in the body). While we use an integrated approach, Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most widely-used therapy for anxiety disorders. Research has shown it to be effective in the treatment of panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder, among many other conditions. We will also help you learn other effective strategies and tools.
