Rochester Center for Anxiety Treatment is accepting new patients who are adolescents or adults that suspect or know they have an anxiety disorder.  If you have a pre-adolescent child who you think is mature and ready for therapy, we can discuss them on a case by case basis.  Deaf and hard of hearing clients can see a therapist who is fluent in ASL.  

We accept most Aetna plans, including Aetna UR and RIT student plans.  However, due to current NY legislation, we cannot accept Aetna, or any form of, Medicaid or Medicare.  We are also in network for Lifetime Benefit Solutions, Independent Health and PomCo.   We are able to provide you with paperwork for reimbursement with your insurance; please call them to as about your plan's out of network benefits.  You should also be able to use any HSA savings you have accumulated. We are not in network for any of the Blue Cross plans, but many of those plans have out of network benefits. 

Additionally, we offer competitive self-pay rates for the Rochester area.  Clients may also choose to see someone for a nominal fee, less than the average copay, as the center is able to offer sessions with a competent, supervised practicum student.  You can read more about this wonderful person and their background in the "Who We Are" section.

 But what if I also have?

  • Depression

  • Eating Disorder (if supervised by a physician)   
  • You are more than welcome- these only represent a few of the common coinciding issues people with anxiety disorders face that we address.  
  • Although family or couples counseling is not a primary focus of treatment, your support system is always welcome to join you for therapy and is encouraged to play an active role in your journey.

Unfortunately at this time, Rochester Anxiety does not accept clients with any of the following.  These disorders need to be well managed before one is ready to begin intense anxiety work.   If you are already working on these issues under the supervision of a therapist who believes that we can collaborate your treatment, this might be an exception.

  • Dissociative Disorders
  • Personality Disorders
  • Bipolar Disorder
