About Our Child Anxiety Team

Our providers are all hired because they come to EBTCS with graduate and/or postgraduate specialist training in anxiety and related disorders. Once at EBTCS, they receive further specialist training, including at least one year of supervision by experts in anxiety, OCD, school refusal behavior, and related conditions. Our therapists have training and experience in a wide range of evidence-based treatments and are used to working with clients and families with complex symptoms. All of our providers attend regular, ongoing trainings to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in evidence-based care and value a science-based approach to treatment that is tailored to the needs of every individual and family.
