Portland Anxiety Clinic (PAC) offers a wide range of cognitive behavioral services designed to help clients lead more fulfilling, productive and healthy lives.
We utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure treatment principles primarily to help clients make positive changes in their lives. While we address difficulties clients may be having, we also work with clients to help them identify and employ the many strengths, internal resources and positive attributes that they possess.
We believe that exposure may need to take place outside in the community for the greatest therapeutic benefit rather than in an office setting. The PAC is one of only a few psychological clinics in the Portland area who practice in-vivo therapy.
We offer psychotherapy, counseling services for individuals and couples, as well as groups for those who suffer from anxiety and depression.
In addition to that, we specialize in psychological assessment, ADHD assessment and assessment for learning disabilities. Our assessment services help clinicians and clients quickly identify areas of concern, determine the nature and extent of potential problems and identify targets for treatment.
Together, the clinician and the client can then map out the most effective treatment plan. This process yields a better use of the client’s time, more effective treatment planning, and ultimately, better outcomes.
PAC also works in collaboration with a local psychiatric nurse practitioner to better assist those clients who may benefit from psychotropic medications to help manage their symptoms. We are happy to provide a referral in those cases.
