Narrative of Services:
We offer comprehensive assessment and treatment for individuals suffering with mild, moderate or severe OCD. Each patient, regardless of their level of impairment, deserves to be educated about the disorder and presented with different treatment options. It is our belief, that the core processes of ERP and CBT are most effective in the context of a trusting, caring relationship between sufferer and provider. Medication is often a useful adjunct to behavioral work and we coordinate with a number of experienced psychiatrists.
In office and in home sessions available. Family
education and support is also available.
