COVID-19 Response: A message from Austin Anxiety and OCD Specialists
Our team remains here for you! The health and well-being of our clients and our team is our top priority. For our clients who prefer to meet with their therapist in person, we are taking extra precautions to maintain a safe environment. We are disinfecting common areas in our office every hour, disinfecting our therapy rooms and washing our hands in between every therapy session, and making hand sanitizer available to our clients. We also have a secure, HIPAA compliant client portal for our clients who prefer to meet with us on-line for teletherapy. Many of our clients have been taking advantage of teletherapy for years due to the extra convenience it provides; however, we believe this technology will serve our clients particularly well during the upcoming weeks. Research has shown that teletherapy is as effective as in-person therapy and, because our platform allows us to share our screen with you, we will be able to use the same worksheets, handouts, and videos through teletherapy that we would share with you in the office. Call us at 512-246-7225 or email us at [email protected] for more information.
Compassionate, Goal-Oriented, Evidence-Based Therapy
Anxiety motivates us to prepare for important events and protects us when we are in harm’s way. However, anxiety becomes problematic when it is out of proportion to the situation in a way that interferes with daily activities. Affecting approximately one in eight children and one in six adults, anxiety disorders are the most frequently occurring behavioral health disorders; however, only about one-third of those suffering from an anxiety disorder receive treatment. We specialize in treating anxiety and related disorders like OCD using evidence-based treatment approaches that are supported by decades of research. If you or a loved one is suffering from anxiety or OCD, we can help.
