Services for Clients

Individual Treatment

Outpatient Treatment Program

Dr. Erwin offers treatment sessions that can be scheduled at any frequency. The speed and effectiveness of treatment is maximized with weekly appointments. Once progress has been made, sessions to maintain treatment gains can be scheduled less frequently. Clients might, for a variety of reasons, request less frequent treatment sessions from the start. These clients certainly can be accommodated. Dr. Erwin will travel to meet clients when necessary. With written consent, Dr. Erwin collaborates actively with other treatment providers and schools. Active collaboration with other treatment providers and schools results in more effective treatment.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program

Clients with severe anxiety or who are in a crisis may need to receive treatment multiple times a week. For such clients, Dr. Erwin offers an intensive treatment program, which is short-term and is designed to treat anxiety and related problems aggressively to bring these clients relief.

Group Treatment

The Anxiety and OCD Center offers the only evidence-based groups in the area that specialize in the treatment of anxiety and not behavior problems.  We are proud to announce that our summer stress buster group treatment series will start on Wednesday July 8, 2015 and run for six weeks.  Our summer series offers children, teens, and parents the opportunity to learn cognitive behavioral strategies to effectively manage anxiety and build social skills.  Our summer stress buster groups provide a cost-effective way to treat anxiety.

Summer Stress Buster Groups

  • Courageous Kids Club (12:30-2:00 pm) is for children ages 8-12 years old dealing with anxiety.  Your child will be able to recognize their fears, develop effective treatment skills, become more comfortable in social situations, and meet other children struggling with anxiety.
  • Face Your Fears Teen Talk (3:00-4:30 pm) is for teens ages 13-17 years old experiencing anxiety.  Your teen will be able to identify their worries, develop effective treatment skills, become more comfortable in social situations, and meet other teens struggling with anxiety.
  • Parenting Your Anxious Child Group (5:30-7:00 pm) is for parents interested in  learning to manage problems associated with childhood and teen anxiety and related problems.  Parents will be able to identify  symptoms of anxiety, understand why your child or teen becomes anxious, and develop concrete strategies to help your child or teen cope with anxiety at home, school, and with their peers.
Group treatment is provided by Anxiety and OCD Center clinicians, who are experts in anxiety and stress management.   The first session is an individual comprehensive assessment with a clinician prior to the group start date.  Groups meet weekly on Wednesdays for 90 minutes.

Executive Coaching Services

Picture yourself in the zone, playing a sport, on an interview, in an important conversation. This is where you need to be in high-stakes situations. Stress, anxiety, and self-consciousness take you out of the zone and negatively impact your performance.

High school and college students may feel as though their future rides upon their performance during these demanding years.

Executive and professionals may feel as though their livelihood rests upon their ability to be effective and create an impact in high-stakes situations.

Coaching for Calm and Confidence™ Executive Coaching Program has trained countless executives, professionals, college students, and high school students in experimentally-based, cognitive-behavioral stress management and confidence building strategies. The goals of the Coaching for Calm and Confidence™ Executive Coaching Program are individually tailored and commonly include reducing anxiety and self-consciousness and maximizing calm, confidence, and effectiveness in life’s most important interactions.

Dr. Brigette Erwin, cognitive-behavioral psychologist and expert in anxiety and stress management, provides one-on-one executive coaching through the Coaching for Calm and Confidence™ Executive Coaching Program. Dr. Erwin employs well-studied and effective cognitive-behavioral strategies to identify causes of stress, anxiety, and self-consciousness and to create calm and confidence in the most important situations you encounter.

What our clients are saying:We had tried to figure out what was affecting our child for years, with no success. After a few short visits, Dr. Erwin was able to piece together the puzzle for us and help us come up with solutions.  Working with Dr. Erwin made a world of difference for our family.

Dr. Brigette Erwin has been a tremendous asset to my son, who is dealing with OCD. I would highly recommend her as a caring, knowledgeable source of assistance. – Jeanean Kroninger
