Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CUCARD)

We specialize in providing general and intensive outpatient care for children, adolescents, and adults whose lives are impaired by anxiety disorders and related difficulties.

CUCARD is a comprehensive clinic dedicated to delivering evidence-based treatments for any and all anxiety disorders with a special emphasis on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Clinicians work diligently to provide treatments that are supported by research and to personalize and tailor treatment plans to best meet each individual’s and family’s needs. Treatment frequency can range from once weekly to daily for several hours a day, depending on clinical need.
