Hugh Baras, PhD
Narrative of Services:
My treatment philosophy is short term therapy for long term results. I specialize in all anxiety disorders which involves a large percentage of OCD people. I work collaboratively with patients in decision making and in treatment goals, but we are always guided by the evidence based research indicating the best strategies to be used for each presenting problem (usually some variation of CBT plus exposure and response prevention).
I have been treating and OCD Spectrum issues for over 24 years, first as a staff member of the Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Department at Stanford University School of Medicine and then in private practice. I have also trained many medical residents in the evidenced based cognitive and behavioral skills to successfully treat OCD.
