Anxiety Research & Treatment Team
The Anxiety Research and Treatment Center is a specialty clinic offering state-of-the-art assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders throughout the life span. Services are provided for children, adolescents, and adults experiencing difficulties with anxiety such as panic attacks, obsessions, compulsions, social anxiety, fears (such as public speaking, going to school, separation anxiety, etc.) and worries.
Mindfulness in Health Team
This program integrates clinical practice and research based on mindfulness, an acceptance-based intervention model. We utilize Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-based psychotherapy in working both individually and in groups with clients facing a wide range of challenging life circumstances, including medical conditions, depression, anxiety, and stress.
Integrative Intervention Team
Integrative intervention draws on a broad range of evidence-based and evidence-supported strategies to address cognitive, emotional, and interpersonal difficulties encountered in a variety of life settings. Integrative intervention is integrative in three ways: 1) across disordered and normal functioning, 2) across types of intervention (CBT, cognitive remediation therapy, mindfulness, narrative, etc), and 3) across clinical theories and practice. The over-arching conceptual framework is that clinical issues are best addressed in the simultaneous consideration of cognitive, affective, and behavioral interactions with the therapist.
The CARDS (Children with ADHD and Related Difficulties) Team
This team specializes in providing state-of-the-art evidence-based services for children and adolescents who have or may have ADHD. Services include diagnostic evaluations, individual and family therapy, and group services (including Parent Training for ADHD groups and the Managing Frustration for Children with ADHD child group).

OCD, Trauma & Depression Team
This program is specially designed for adults and teens suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, traumatic experiences, and/or depressive disorders. Types of OCD treated include contamination fears, doubt/checking, compulsions, sexual obsessions, religious concerns, and other unwanted thoughts. In addition, we address the effects of trauma related to violence, abuse, sexual assault, racism, natural disaster, accidents and other experiences. We also focus on treating depression, in combination with OCD and PTSD or alone. Clients will receive evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for their difficulties, including exposure therapies and behavioral activation.
Geropsychological Assessment and Intervention Team
This team provides a variety of clinical services to older adults and their families including assessment of late life cognitive problems including Alzheimer's disease (AD), Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and other mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, and grief. This can include a full neuropsychological evaluation or a brief screening for cognitive problems. We also provide psychological services to older adults including individuals recently diagnosed with dementia (such as AD). This includes psychotherapy for depression, anxiety, and other psychological concerns associated with receiving a dementia diagnosis. We also offer psychotherapy for caregivers of people with dementia.
