Description:

At the BCM OCD program we evaluate and treat obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related conditions, including body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), hoarding, and trichotillomania. In addition to direct outpatient ERP treatment and pharmacology for OCD, we specialize in OCD that has not responded to first line therapeutic approaches through device-based interventions including deep brain stimulation (DBS). At BCM we conduct research focused on the neurobiology of OCD with the goal of discovering the causes of these disorders and identifying the pathways to developing more effective therapies. Our research includes the use of brain imaging, genetic testing, behavioral & pharmacological therapies, and NIH-funded studies of DBS.

We employ experts in the OCD field including leading psychiatrist Dr. Wayne Goodman who has over 25 years of experience in OCD, was the co-founder of the IOCDF and principal developer of the Y-BOCS. Dr. Eric Storch is a world renowned CBT specialist specializing in the nature and treatment of childhood and adult OCD, anxiety disorders & anxiety youth with autism. Dr. Elizabeth McIngvale was the first-ever national spokesperson for the IOCDF, is a mental health advocate and OCD clinician focused on OCD treatment through the use of ERP with children and adults.
