The Centre for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Our specialty is the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders using cognitive therapy and exposure based treatments.  Exposure, and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) interventions represent a gold standard in the treatment of panic disorder, specific phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), health anxiety, social anxiety disorder and agoraphobia. Most people who are anxious tend to avoid phobic objects, activities, or places associated with their fears. They may also take extra special precautions to cope.  Avoidance behaviors and coping strategies known as “safety devices”, as well as distraction efforts, work only in the short term, but then ultimately serve to perpetuate the problem. If you are struggling with any of these problems, be aware that our skilled clinicians will provide you with the tools that you require to overcome your difficulties.  All you need is a willingness to evaluate and observe your thinking and begin to confront the situations or activities that you have been avoiding. 

Janet Caryk and Wes Miller have over fifty years combined clinical and counseling experience.  Our trusted associates have been trained and supervised to a high standard in the provision of CBT.  After providing consent, clients can have the advantage of a senior master clinician overseeing their treatment plan, should they choose to.
