Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders Clinic
This program opened in 2011. The OCD intensive treatment program is staffed by the program director Chris Bedosky, PhD and Felipe Amunategui, PhD a psychologist who uses CBT to address OCD and co-morbid disorders. Our medical director is Molly McVoy, M.D. who is board certified in adult as well as child and adolescent psychiatrist. Because University Hospitals/Case Medical Center is a teaching institution, we also have several child and adolescent psychiatry fellows who work with the program.
Our intensive treatment program is designed to help those individuals who are unable to attend school due to their anxiety or OCD spectrum disorder. We work to get the student — whether a kindergartener or a graduate student — back into school and to the task of learning. All of the interventions and medications used are based on the current best practices as recommended by the leaders in the field. We take a patient-centered approach to treatment, and understand that not everyone is ready to start on page one the first day of treatment. We also understand that the goals of our patients come first, and our goal is to develop a treatment plan that honors and respects the goals of each individual patient.
