The Anxiety and Stress Clinic believes that the most effective treatments for anxiety and depression rely on the scientific method. Our therapists utilize evidence-based methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP). CBT is an empirically supported treatment for anxiety disorders, and has a learning-based approach in which you will learn and practice skills for weakening patterns of anxious thinking and behavior. Treatment is tailored to your specific needs, rather than being “one size fits all.” Treatments are brief (typically, 3-6 months) and intended to provide the tools needed to overcome your current distress.
Our waitlist is OPEN. If you are interested in being placed on the waitlist for individual therapy, please fill out our screening survey.
Virtual Reality Treatment (VRT)
Virtual reality (VR) has been used for decades as a tool for therapists to administer virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET). VR can be incorporated with CBT to provide an effective treatment for a range of mental health issues.
Using VR technology, anxiety-inducing stimuli can be simulated in a safe, controllable and effective manner. The use of VR can be customized based on individuals’ specific needs for treatment, such as: fear of heights, fear of flying, or fear of certain kinds of animal or insects.
