Capital OCD & Anxiety Practice is committed to benefiting the lives of Austin’s children, adolescents, and emerging adults by providing the highest standard of evidence-based care. Extensive research supports the effectiveness of exposure-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety or OCD. Exposure and Response Prevention (E/RP) is the behavioral treatment component that involves constructively approaching previously avoided situations. Specializing in these methods, we support meaningful, lasting change through focused, sensitive collaboration.
