Jennifer Nikou PhD, LCSW
Psychotherapist/Director of The Harbor Psychotherapy Services, LCSW, PLLC
Dr. Nikou has worked specifically with clients addressing OCD and its different subsets for 22 + years in various settings, i.e., inpatient, outpatient, residential, and private practice. I have extensive knowledge of lesser-known types of OCD such as HOCD, ROCD, TOCD, and Ocular CD. Thoughts centering on perfectionism, moral scrupulosity, and sexual, violent, or otherwise inappropriate images are treated with a combination of ERP and CBT, and active engagement with the client. Habit Reversal Therapy is also utilized to treat skin picking and hair pulling. I work closely with a psychiatrist of choice if medication management is needed.
Anxiety/Depressive Disorders and OCD; Spectrum Related Disorders and OCD; OCD and gender dysphoria
Dr. Nikou’s practice consists primarily of clients being treated for OCD and/or OCD Related Disorders. Over the past two decades, I have treated thousands of patients diagnosed with OCD, Spectrum-Related Disorders, and other co-occurring disorders such as GAD. I have been trained through NOCD, CBT and ERP workshops and anxiety clinics. Currently, I am providing telehealth services.
I work closely with members of the LGBTQ community, in particular individuals identifying as transgender and non-binary. I also routinely work with community members who do not identify in one of the aforementioned categories.
