Heather Hood PhD, C. Psych.
We offer individual CBT for Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders, including ERP, ComB, and mindfulness/acceptance based therapies. Approximately 50% of the practice involves the assessment and treatment of OCRD.
I completed a PhD at Ryerson University (2014), where my doctoral research examined cognitive, meta-cognitive, and neuropsychological variables associated with insight into the nature and severity of one’s OCD symptoms. I have published peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters related to OCD, including OCD symptom domains and perfectionism-related OCD. I have received specialized training and provided group and individual CBT, including ERP and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, for OCD, hoarding, trichotillomania, and excoriation disorder.
