Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has gained considerable scientific support through research studies to effectively treat the above issues. Each of these specific types of CBT are structured and outcome oriented, meaning the therapy will focus on specific skills and experiences that have been found to improve people’s experience with anxiety and OCD. However, the way in which these skills are learned can be made flexible to fit your specific experiences and rely on collaboration between you and the therapist. For the treatment methods to work, it will be important for you to practice the skills you learn in sessions while you are at home, work or school.

Parent Support and Family Therapy

For children and teens overcoming anxiety and OCD, parent involvement is very important. Parent support sessions and family therapy are often offered to support your youth’s work in individual therapy. This support can take a variety of forms, but most often includes inviting parents to join in the end of each session to learn what the youth has practiced and how you can support their continued practice at home.
