Narrative of Services:
At the OC Anxiety Center we use empirically supported treatments tailored to each individual to help overcome OCD and related disorders. We utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with a focus on Exposure and Response Prevention, as applied to Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders. We focus on brief treatment that is protocol driven with the average number of sessions being 15 across all disorders.
50% of our patients are receiving treatment OCD and related disorders, with Dr. Hsia having worked with more than 500 OCD patients over his career.
