Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - CBT
Addressing fear, worry, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive spectrum conditions, CBT Baltimore offers outpatient CBT which is tailored to the patient’s needs. Most commonly, patients engage in a weekly 45- or 50-minute session.
Those treatments can be supplemented with family sessions when parents and other loved ones are involved.
This general approach changes if the patient requires additional or fewer sessions per week, or if a longer session is necessary to accommodate behavioral exercises.
When working with OCD, sessions outside the office may be beneficial. As treatment progresses, sessions may begin to be scheduled at a bi-weekly pace and then a booster session further out to ease out of treatment. In some circumstances it is most beneficial to schedule multiple sessions a week or have longer sessions.
