What is SPACE? 

Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE) is a parent-based treatment program for children and adolescents with anxiety, OCD, and related problems.  SPACE was developed by Dr. Eli Lebowitz at the Yale Child Study Center.  

What makes SPACE unique? 

  • PARENTS are the focus, the child does not need to be present  
  • Treatment works to target PARENT accommodations that reinforce childhood anxiety
  • PARENTS learn to respond more supportively to their anxious child in the moment 
  • SPACE is meant to be short term with the target of completion in 6 sessions or less  


Our SPACE treatment is led by staff clinicians Rachel Kusilek LPCC and Elizabeth Kittleson, LMFT 

There are two options available to access SPACE treatment: 

  • 1:1 sessions
  • Join a cohort of 4-5 families & work through the process together in a virtual setting

Virtual or In Person options available



SPACE treatment is not a service covered by insurance

$200 per individual session  OR  $700 for a package of 5 group sessions + one session individual session
