Meridian Psychology Practice is a group of therapists in Rochester and Buffalo NY that specializes in providing evidence-based therapy for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD, treated with DBT skills), and Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs). Meridian was started by Dr. Lauren Wadsworth, PhD ABPP with a goal of providing trustworthy evidence based therapy with no wait time. In the midst of a therapist shortage and significant need, especially in Western NY and the suburbs of Rochester and Buffalo, we strive to make it easy and fast for people to find a skilled therapist. Clients can start therapy within a week of contacting Meridian.

Our Style: Therapy is personalized for individuals to process and explore their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and to learn skills to meet their goals. All of our providers are trained in evidence based techniques (e.g., Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD, etc.) for treating anxiety, depression, and other challenges.

We offer telehealth and in person services in Rochester NY.

Diversity Statement:
All Meridian therapists are enthusiastically willing to support clients with any/all marginalized identities.

We have therapists who identify as people of color, within the LGBTQ+ community, lived experience with OCD, and other marginalized/equity-deserving communities.

All therapists have access to materials and training on the ways that sociocultural identities can shape client experiences/symptoms/treatment and are encouraged via the clinic owner and case consultations to engage in continued self reflection and learning about identity related considerations.
