Heather M Pederson PhD
At least a quarter of my clients present with OCD and anxiety-related disorders. I am a board certified couple and family psychologist, and am skilled to address issues associated with OCD that have impact on important relationships (family or romantic). I have a particular interest in working with Relationship OCD and somatic OCD.
I am certified in ERP treatment by Penn’s Center for the Study and Treatment of Anxiety. Additionally, I meet bimonthly with a local OCD consultation group and maintain a fresh perspective on the variable OCD experience and the therapeutic needs of my clients. Although I was certified in ERP more recently (2019), I have educated myself in the evidence based treatment of anxiety, using ACT and CBT-informed approaches, since 2006.
