The Reeds Center
opened in January 2012. The Reeds Center
is run by three licensed clinical psychologists with extensive experience and expertise in cognitive behavioral therapy for OCD. We developed our treatment programs based on our collective knowledge and experience in clinical research and practice at Columbia University and the
New York State Psychiatric Institute. Our work at these institutions focused on ways to improve response to cognitive behavioral therapies, including ERP for OCD. Each director is closely involved in the
training and supervision of all clinical staff to ensure the
highest quality of care.
The Reeds Center offers treatment for patients with OCD and comorbid conditions. We offer varying intensities of treatment in order to meet the needs of a wide range of patients. We also offer assistance with exposure practice outside of regular sessions.
Of note, we offer a variety of ways to make intensive ERP more affordable for patients, including group treatment, in-home sessions via Internet conferencing, and sessions with pre-doctoral externs and postdoctoral fellows.
The Reeds Center specializes the treatment of OCD and OCD spectrum disorders, which frequently occur with other conditions such as eating disorders, body focused repetitive behaviors, major depressive disorder, and other anxiety disorders (such as panic, generalized anxiety disorder, and PTSD). We also work with many people who struggle with the effects of childhood abuse or later trauma, in addition to OCD. Treatment is planned collaboratively with the patient after a thorough evaluation. ERP and other cognitive behavioral or third-wave behavioral therapies are used.
