Since our inception, we have been committed to providing the best possible anxiety treatment whenever possible to the citizens of the Reno/Tahoe area.
Further, we have continually identified a lack of well trained, competent referral sources for stress and anxiety disorders, which happen to be the most commonly diagnosed psychiatric condition nationally. The great news we discovered in our research: Anxiety disorders are also among the most treatable!
In late 2017, our agency is officially rebranded and changing our primary (though definitely not only) focus toward the treatment of stress and anxiety disorders as The Anxiety Treatment Center of Nevada. Our full intention is to be a "one stop shop" for those who struggle with stress and anxiety every day, with the hope of making our community stronger, one success story at a time!

In fact, in October 2017, our agency contracted with The Beck Institute to have Dr. Amy Wenzel, PhD fly to Reno and exclusively train all of our core clinical staff in the use of CBT. In fall 2019, we had our staff trained further by The Beck Institute in CPT and Prolonged Exposure for PTSD and trauma. No other outpatient agency in our region has committed the time, energy and financial resources behind a training of this magnitude!
