Vanessa Litoff PsyD
I’m a clinical psychologist and assistant professor of psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital. I specialize in treating adults and adolescents with OCD. I have experience working with a range of OCD subtypes–including emotional contamination, responsibility/checking OCD, harm OCD, sexual obsessions and relationship OCD. I use Exposure and Response Prevention, which is the best-supported treatment for OCD. I provide individual therapy and lead an OCD skills group.
I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from Roosevelt University in Chicago. I completed my pre-doctoral internship in the PHP at McLean SouthEast Hospital and the outpatient clinic at South Shore Mental Health. During this time, I received extensive cognitive behavioral training in the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. I completed my postdoctoral fellowship at The Reeds Center, a practice that specializes in treating OCD. After my fellowship, I worked at Grand Central Psychology where I continued to treat clients with OCD and anxiety disorders. In addition to CBT, I integrate mindfulness, compassion-focused and relational approaches into my work.
