Gail Martz, PsyD
Narrative of Services:
I collaborate with my patients to gain more freedom from their intrusive thoughts, obsessions, fears and the associated avoidance and compulsive behaviors. We can work together on “pure O” too where it seems like there are no outward, repetitive compulsions. I’ve seen hundreds of patients with a huge variety of obsessions and compulsions. At least 90% of my patients at any one time are working with me on their obsessions and compulsions using Cognitive-Behavioral techniques and especially Exposure with Response Prevention.
I have specialized in the treatment of OCD and Obsessive-Compulsive spectrum disorders (including hair pulling and skin picking) for over 20 years. I hold a Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree and have been a licensed clinical psychologist since 2000.
