Wendy R Penzel PsyD
The majority of my patients suffer from OCD and related disorders with approximately 20% having a Body-Focused Repetitive Disorder either on its own or in addition to OCD. Treatment for OCD emphasizes the use of Exposure and Response Prevention and the Comb or Comprehensive Behavioral Treatment for BFRBs. In more than 22 years of private practice I estimate that I have treated over 1,000 patients.
I received my Doctorate in Psychology from Hofstra University in 2000 and my formal post-doctoral training includes the Primary Certificate Program at the Albert Ellis Institute. I have been trained and supervised in treating OCD and OC related disorders in children, adolescents and adults by a noted authority and member of the Scientific Advisory Board. Since becoming licensed I have continued to specialize in these disorders and have also trained and supervised professionals and graduate students in their treatment.
