Kathryn (Kathy) Angell, PhD
Narrative of Services:
Approximately 10-20% of my practice is working with individuals with OCD. I also offer evidence-based treatments (treatments research has shown to be effective) for depression, hypochondriasis/illness-anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD, phobias, eating disorders, and ADHD. For couples in distress, I offer the Gottman approach to couples therapy in which couples are taught the secrets of longstanding happy and stable couples, as discovered by Dr. Gottman’s decades of research on them.
I successfully completed training in Exposure Response Prevention, the only OCD treatment the Society of Clinical Psychology of the American Psychological Association identifies as currently having Strong Research Support (as of 10/13/16). I trained at the Center for Treatment of Anxiety (CTSA) at the University of Pennsylvania, a world leader in OCD training and research.
I also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at the Center for Cognitive Therapy (founded by Dr. Aaron T. Beck, the “father of Cognitive Therapy”) and the Centre for Research on Eating Disorders at Oxford and in research-based Gottman Couples Therapy from the Gottman Institute, U-Washington.
