Kate Gibson PsyD, ABPP
About 35% percent of our referrals are for OCD and/or OC Related Disorders including PANS/PANDAS and BFRBs. I have treated over 50 children or teens with OCD and/or OC Related Disorders. This area is an important focus of the group practice that I own and operate.
I am a licensed psychologist who is board certified in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology. I have extensive training in CBT for children and teens for a variety of challenges including anxiety, OCD and OC Related Disorders. I have been treating children and teens with OCD using ERP since 2010. I received supervision on treating OCD during my APA predoctoral internship and my postdoctoral fellowship at Astor Services for Children and Families. I continues self guided learning until completing the Pediatric BTTI through IOCDF in 2016.
I have experience working in a variety of settings including schools and community mental health where the clientele represented diverse backgrounds.
I completed several graduate courses in multicultural competence related to the provision of assessment and psychotherapy to diverse populations. My APA internship incorporated regular workshops surrounding culturally sensitive practice. I have provided services to a diverse range of children, teens and families.
