The New England Center for OCD and Anxiety is a group of specialty clinics in Massachusetts and California that help children, adolescents, and adults who struggle with anxiety, OCD, and related issues find their strengths and learn how to build lives that they love, one step at a time. We provide effective, evidence-based outpatient care for individuals and groups, and offer intensive outpatient treatment. NECOA was founded by Lisa W. Coyne, PhD and Phoebe S. Moore, PhD, licensed Clinical Psychologists. In 2020, they were joined by Evelyn R. Gould, PhD BCBA-D, licensed Psychologist and Behavior Analyst. Together we each bring 20 years experience in clinical practice, training and research to families in Massachusetts  and California.




The thanks that we owe you couldn't possibly fit into one card, so I'll just say this. Thank you for giving my daughter her life back. You have made a difference to our whole family that will last all our lives"

"When I first started working with you, I knew basically how to treat OCD. But you taught me how to go so much deeper and put so much heart into my treatment."

Clinician, Newton

"I have been feeling very grateful to you for teaching me how to feel, how to be in the feelings and just accept them with awareness. How to give space to myself for feeling and for taking care of myself, noticing what I need. It all seems so basic, but I really didn’t know how to to do all that before, and now I find myself able to do that, and it’s such a gift. ."
