Clinical Services at CARD

At the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, we provide clinical services for a range of anxiety disorders and related mental health issues. We conduct extensive evaluations and offer cutting-edge treatments for children, adolescents, and adults. Our primary form of treatment is cognitive-behavioral therapy, often referred to as CBT. Cognitive-behavioral therapy involves a number of components including education about anxiety and related difficulties,  and the coping strategies and skills people can use to manage these challenges. Another major component of CBT is exposure, which involves using these coping strategies and skills with therapist guidance in session, followed by generalization into their day-to-day lives through practice between sessions. Typically, treatment here at CARD is provided in an individual therapy environment where those seeking services come for hour-long sessions once a week. We do, however, offer a range of clinical services that span a number of different disorders and treatment types.

As a combination research/clinical program, some of our clinical services are provided through ongoing research projects that offer treatment at reduced or no cost for those who can benefit from and are eligible for such services. Furthermore, we offer treatment with graduate student clinicians on a sliding fee scale (based on income and family size) in order to ensure that we can accommodate individuals at all income levels.  For more information, please call (617) 353-9610, or e-mail our nurse administrator, Bonnie Brown, at
