Getting better, together.

3-folks is the international online community for anxiety and OCD treatment.

Engage in group therapy, benefit from social support, and get quality care from a licensed psychotherapist.

What is an anxiety disorder?

Nearly 20% of adults in the US experience an anxiety disorder such as PTSD, OCD, and other specific phobias. Anxiety disorders are the most common and treatable psychological concern in the world.

An anxiety disorder drives you to avoid what you care about—or experience significant distress in order to do what you care about. It is not an indication of weakness—the mind is simply caught in a trick. While attempting to protect you, the mind increases your anxiety and amplifies your distress.

Anxiety and OCD treatment

Modern, evidence-based anxiety treatment understands that experiencing anxiety is a normal, healthy, and adaptive reaction to a real or perceived threat. is the treatment community that delivers accessible, effective cognitive behavioral therapy to help create new thinking patterns, beliefs, and behaviors to alleviate suffering and lead a more meaningful life.

We work together to observe what’s happening in the mind, identify the mental tricks perpetuating anxiety, and support ways to respond differently in those moments.

Our treatment difference


Professionally trained, licensed psychotherapists

Our clinicians are licensed psychotherapists. They have masters degrees and doctorate degrees in clinical or counseling psychology or social work. Training to become a licensed psychotherapist varies slightly by degree. All degrees require two to six years of graduate coursework; over 4,000 hours of supervised clinical work; passing national and state-based exams; and ongoing continuing education to maintain licensure. Many of our clinicians have post-graduate specialty training in anxiety and OCD treatment.

Your fellow group members share the same fears

Unlike one-on-one therapy, brings together the quality care offered by highly trained, licensed psychotherapists with the benefits of social support—resilience, self-compassion, and collective hope.

Mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral group therapy includes exposure and response prevention—and is just as effective as individual psychotherapy. After developing an understanding of what triggers, intensifies, and maintains your anxiety, we’ll work together to find new ways to help you live a life you value.


Accessible and technology enabled

We use technology to increase the opportunity for human connection and for more consistent, accessible care. It has been shown that videoconferencing is as efficacious as face-to-face care—and members report the ability to drop their hypervigilance by video. 

Our video conferencing and electronic health record software is HIPAA compliant and streamlines the intake, diagnostic, scheduling, and billing process.
