Anxiety Services

Our providers are highly collaborative and work with each individual client and their treatment team (if needed) to asses, create and implement an individualized plan toward recovery and health.  This may involve varying levels of care from individual therapy, to intensive outpatient programs, to a combination of services designed to best address the needs of the client. 

Intensive Outpatient Programs & Day Treatment

Separate programs for Adults (18+) & Adolescents (12-18)

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) & Day Treatment are a group-based, more intensive form of treatment for those experiencing moderate to severe mental health symptoms.  An IOP level of care is designed to meet the needs of individuals who need more support than weekly therapy sessions but are not in need of inpatient care.  Participants will receive psychoeducation and skills teaching including; mindfulness, crisis management, cognitive challenging, regulation strategies, boundaries, communication and emotional expression or containment.  In addition members will have process/emotion group therapy, gain education on nutrition and mood, explore the role of spirituality related to healing and integrate movement therapies for mind/body connection.
