Milestones opens new Anxiety/OCD Clinic

Stone Belt recently opened the Milestones Center for Child/Adolescent Anxiety and OCD Treatment. This new anxiety center is a part of Milestones Clinical and Health Resources. 

The objective is to help children, adolescents, and their families understand their diagnoses and to provide scientifically supported treatment and recovery with strategies for lifelong management. The clinic offers a multidisciplinary treatment team that includes a psychiatrist and three therapists trained in evidence-based care.

What sets this program apart is the advanced training as master clinicians in anxiety-related disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The treatment team's commitment to care will include a consistent staffing of cases to offer maximum benefit to clients. The clinic offers treatment fidelity and flexibility to meet the developmental needs of each individual.

Stone Belt is committed to providing ongoing professional development through trainings, webinars, and attendance at special conferences for the master clinicians, who include Jennifer Halloran, Deb Mishler, Cindi Winegardner, and Dr. Melinda Weakley.

Diagnostic categories include: GAD, OCD, phobias, social anxiety, panic, trichotillomania, separation anxiety and selective mutism.
