High Quality Service
My family has experienced a multitude of mental health issues. CBI was very quick to address each family members concerns. From the very first appointment my family experienced relief, was hopeful and immediately felt that they would find a way through. The staff at CBI are kind, caring, professional, open, ethical and brilliant. As a mother, I have found CBI to be the perfect support for my family and has helped us sort through life's challenges without being labelled or stigmatized. Thank you CBI. You are exceptional and are a blessing to this area!

I had my first panic attack in third grade and suffered on and off throughout my teens and twenties with anxiety. I saw many therapists throughout my life and not only was most ineffective I had also gone misdiagnosed for the majority of my life. Dr. Caridad was the first person therapist to even suggest CBT therapy to me. He also never pushed me to just take medicine as most other therapists had done to me. Dr. Caridad is extremely caring and has taken my calls while I was traveling and needing help and has taken appointments with me short notice and was after normal hours. He is calm, and always made me feel very comfortable and safe. Although CBT therapy was difficult at times Dr. Caridad always encouraged me and allowed me to go at my own pace. He continually gave me new exercises to help me gain control of my fears. He is the first person to truly help me understand my OCD and anxiety and the first to actually teach me skills that we effective and improved my quality of life. I would highly recommend anyone who is suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, etc to see Dr. Caridad. He has made a world of difference in my life.

Outstanding Art Therapy for kids
My daughter has been doing art therapy at the CBI. Not only is her therapist in tune with her needs, but he communicates her strengths and goals with me to help me be a better mom. I love that we are part of a team and all working towards her best interest.

Do You Suffer from Panic Disorder? A Specific Phobia? Look no further than Dr. Caridad!
My teenage daughter has suffered from severe, sometimes debilitating panic disorder due to a fear of vomit. This has gone on since she was in elementary school and she is now graduating. We have searched for years for a GOOD, EFFECTIVE CBT and Exposure therapist in western PA. There is ONE. Dr. Caridad. Before finding him, we had to go out of state for treatment. We are so thankful to have finally found him. He has made the biggest difference in my daughter's life. He stays up to date on current research in the field and even teaches at a local highly regarded university. I cannot emphasize this enough, he KNOWS how to treat panic disorder and specific phobias. He is nationally recognized for his work. Don't suffer any longer if you have panic disorder or specific phobias. He helped my daughter so much, and he is extremely caring. From a mother who has researched effective treatments and help in western PA for YEARS, Dr. Caridad is the real deal. How lucky we are to have found him when we did.
