Gordon G. Ball, PhD

Psychologist
25 Central Park West, Suite 1-I
New York, New York 10023

Narrative of Services:

I have been a Licensed Psychologist in New York State since 1976 and have been in private practice in New York City since 1975. I have concentrated on patients with OCD ever since the beginning of my practice. I use graded Exposure and Response Prevention exclusively, concentratiing especially on the behavioral procedures as I find them, in general, to be more effective than cognitive interventions. In the course of my 33 years of practice, I estimate that I have treated about 1500 patients, with the vast majority showing considerable improvement.
