The Anxiety and Behavioral Health Clinic offers cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for anxiety and related conditions. Decades of scientific research, including large-scale clinical trials with thousands of patients, have demonstrated that CBT significantly reduces or eliminates symptoms of anxiety. Treatment typically involves 10-20 weekly sessions approximately an hour long each. See Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies for more information about evidence-based practices and cognitive behavioral therapy.
If you are interested in receiving treatment, please contact us to participate in a brief phone interview. If it seems that our services will meet your needs, you will be scheduled for a more thorough, in-person diagnostic assessment conducted by one of our anxiety specialists. The fee for the in-person assessment is $250. Each standard treatment session is approximately 50 minutes and costs $60. We do not accept insurance. In some cases intensive, outpatient treatment programs can be designed for motivated clients who do not live in the Tallahassee area.
In order to overcome barriers to treatment presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Anxiety and Behavioral Health Clinic is now offering virtual therapy visits via telehealth. Telehealth enables you to remotely connect with an anxiety specialist for individual therapy services by phone, tablet or computer. Utilizing user-friendly, HIPAA-compliant video and communications technology, this service allows you to see and speak with an ABHC therapist just as you would during an in-person visit — all in real-time, respectful of social distancing practices, and from your own home, office or anywhere you may be. If you are interested in receiving virtual treatment via telehealth, please contact our clinic.
In addition to standard treatment, you may receive information about research participation options, which may include receiving free or low-cost treatments. To learn more about some of our research participation options, please visit our Research section.
