The Anxiety Treatment Center of Maryland is a specialty outpatient behavioral health clinic dedicated to providing the highest quality psychological and medication treatment services to individuals with anxiety, stress, and fear-related disorders. Our treatment center - located in Ellicott City (Howard County) - is currently staffed by several clinical psychologists (Drs. Courtney Keeton, Kelly Drake, and Lindsay Borden) who have extensive experience and expertise in treating children, adolescents, and adults with anxiety and related disorders.
Our approach to assessment and treatment is evidence-based, which means that the treatments we use are shown to be effective based on scientific data.
Our clinicians contributed to several landmark studies which evaluated various treatments for childhood and adolescent emotional and behavioral health disorders (anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, ADHD, tics, and Tourette’s syndrome) by completing rigorous training and certification needed to serve as investigators, diagnosticians, and treatment specialists for large-scale multicenter randomized controlled treatment studies.
Based on the available evidence and our own clinical experiences using CBT and related treatment strategies, we are able to individualize effective treatment plans and tailor them to the unique needs of our patients in order to maximize outcomes and enhance quality of life.
