Pacific Anxiety Group (San Francisco)
We are a professional and collaborative team of highly-trained and compassionate clinical psychologists who are dedicated to helping each patient triumph against OCD and begin living a life free of suffering. All PAG psychologists have extensive training in cognitive and behavioral interventions for the full range of anxiety disorders and specific expertise in providing exposure and response prevention (ERP) to individuals with OCD. Our psychologists have trained at the country’s top universities, internship programs, and fellowships, and many hold faculty or staff positions at local academic medical centers, including Stanford University, UCSF, VA Palo Alto Health Care System, and Palo Alto University. We provide individualized treatment sessions 1-2 times weekly for each client and incorporate both CBT and ACT into our protocols. With a goal of sustained recovery, we discuss relapse prevention strategies and their importance from the very beginning of treatment. We work with patients to design more of their own exposure exercises as treatment progresses and to look for opportunities for self-exposure throughout treatment in order to prepare for termination. When nearing completion, each patient will work collaboratively with their therapist on designing a relapse prevention plan and will schedule booster sessions every 1-2 months, as indicated.
