The clinic opened in 2010 when Dr. James Vermilyea identified a need in the area North of Boston, MA for expert outpatient services in treating anxiety disorders and depression. We use on site in vivo and imaginal ERP for OCD and cognitive behavior therapy to treat other co-morbid issues such as depression. We can also do intensive outpatient exposure packages. The clinic has 50% or more of its patients currently being treated for OCD.

We have several doctoral level therapists and offer services to all age groups of OCD patients. Our senior clinicians include the following. Dr. Vermilyea was trained in anxiety disorders and OCD at the State University of New York at Albany at what would become the Boston University Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CARD). He has over 27 years experience treating OCD. Dr. Elaine Borgen is committed to the use of empirically validated interventions for the treatment of OCD and other anxiety disorders and has over 15 years of experience. Dr. Dennis Upper has over twenty years experience in treating OCD.
