Anxiety and Mood Program

The Anxiety and Mood program provides expert care for the treatment of clinical depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, dual diagnosis, and complex co-occurring conditions (i.e. a depressive disorder and substance abuse, anxiety and sex addiction, attention deficit disorder and panic, etc.). After a thorough diagnostic assessment and case conceptualization, the anxiety and mood team will draw from their clinical expertise and the research literature to select an appropriate treatment protocol to effectively reduce your symptom severity. Anxiety and Mood Program clinicians treat children, adolescents, and adults in individual, couples, and group modalities.

Therapists in this program are trained in evidence based treatments including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Prolonged Exposure (PE)
  • Exposure with response prevention (ERP)
  • Interpersonal Therapy

This program is also designed for clients with medical conditions ranging from typical life transitions (e.g., pregnancy) to more complex medical diagnoses. Medical and health concerns often require a multidisciplinary approach to treatment that attends to the stress of health problems on you and your loved ones. Working in close consultation with your primary care provider or specialty physician, clinicians in the anxiety and mood program will provide through assessment of the range of biopsychosocial factors that may be contributing to the maintenance or exacerbation of your medical diagnosis. Clinicians in this program are trained in evidence based therapies designed to change problem behaviors and reduce symptom severity.
