Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CUCARD) Westchester
CUCARD Westchester opened in 2015 as an outpatient clinical service affiliated with Columbia University’s Psychiatry Department. CUCARD Westchester is directed by Anthony Puliafico, PhD and is comprised of Ph.D. level clinicians, all of whom have specialized training in the assessment and treatment of OCD, anxiety and related disorders. CUCARD Westchester specializes in providing accelerated therapy services for children, adolescents and adults requiring a high level of outpatient care. Patients can be seen up to five times weekly and for several hours per day, as indicated by presenting problems. A more intensive treatment approach is often appropriate for children, adolescents, and adults whose disorders are significantly impairing school or work attendance or performance, or ability to complete daily tasks (e.g., washing, eating, leaving the home). We also provide intensive treatment services for individuals or families who travel from out of town for specialized care. CUCARD Westchester also provides standard outpatient treatment for individuals and families in the metro New York area. Standard treatment typically involves once or twice weekly sessions.
