Exposure Reaction Prevention (ERP)

Evidence Based Treatment for Anxiety Disorders, Phobias and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders

Here at A New Leaf Therapy, Maryland - We noticed the increase in anxiety disorders during the pandemic.  Several of our therapists sought out intensive treatment in ERP to better answer the need.  We treat patients ages 11 and up directly.  We are able to bill most insurances and offer both individual and group support.  Children under the age of 11 we suggest treatment with SPACE either individual or group.

IOCDF describes ERP treatment as "The Exposure in ERP refers to exposing yourself to the thoughts, images, objects and situations that make you anxious and/or start your obsessions. While the Response Prevention part of ERP, refers to making a choice not to do a compulsive behavior once the anxiety or obsessions have been “triggered.” All of this is done under the guidance of a therapist at the beginning — though you will eventually learn to do your own ERP exercises to help manage your symptoms."  To read more click:
