Description:

Spectrum CBT was founded in 2011 by Sarosh Motivala, PhD. We provide individual focused treatment for OCD, depression, social anxiety, generalized anxiety and panic. Spectrum CBT has traditional outpatient treatment and Spectrum 360, an individual-focused intensive treatment program. We do not offer groups; instead we prefer to work directly one-on-one with our clients. In our IOP, a team of three psychologists work together with you during your time in our IOP. We blend emotion-processing theory based exposure and response prevention (ERP) with inhibitory learning based ERP. We carry out these approaches using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

OCD is a heterogeneous diagnosis and also highly comorbid with other DSM-5 diagnoses. We specialize in helping individuals using clinical science informed, evidence based approaches. All our clients periodically provide self-report assessments and interview-based assessments (eg YBOCS) so we can track progress. Our priority is to help the whole person; to serve that aim, we integrate CBT strategies beyond ERP that include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Watkins’ Rumination focused CBT and Wells’ metacognitive therapy.
