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 with a patient’s primary therapist for those who may need additional support.

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.
