Kansas City Center for Anxiety Treatment (KCCAT)
KCCAT was opened in October 2005 to provide the local region with an option for highly trained, empirically based cognitive-behavioral services targeting OCD and anxiety disorders. Originally developed in affiliation with Hoglund Brain Imaging Center at the University of Kansas Medical Center, KCCAT became a fully independent program in 2012, maintaining an academic home through its teaching and research partnership with the University of Missouri–Kansas City (UMKC) Department of Psychology.
We offer many options for working with patients in creating affordable service packages, including no-interest payment plans and masters and doctoral level professionals. When available and deemed appropriate, portions of treatment plans or sessions are often also delivered by reduced rate and training therapists (e.g., advanced master’s, doctoral students, or post-doctoral fellows) working under the close supervision of our fully licensed psychologists. The treatment team approach assures a high level of consistency and quality. We also offer a unique “coaching service” within the greater metropolitan area (at a very nominal fee, with no travel charges). This service is ideal for individuals who may lack appropriate social support for further ERP coaching between clinical sessions, or those who simply need help monitoring home-based assignments, maintaining hoarding protocols, etc.
