At MidAtlantic Center for OCD & Anxiety (MCOA), our priority is to provide quality, evidenced-based treatment in a collaborative, compassionate way. We strive to provide problem-focused, time limited treatment to help clients experience positive changes in their lives. Our approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), including exposure based therapies, such as Exposure and Response Prevention and the Comprehensive Behavioral (ComB) model. We believe that this focus on scientifically-supported interventions leads to improved client outcomes.
MCOA recognizes that each person’s reasons for seeking services are unique. We work collaboratively with each client in the initial sessions to gather information, identify treatment goals, and develop an individualized treatment plan. An early emphasis on education about diagnosis and treatment as well as skill-building prepares clients to actively participate in the next phase of treatment, which typically involves exposure-based therapies (for anxiety disorders), such as ERP (for OCD) and the comB model (BFRBs).
