Wendy Penzel, PsyD
Narrative of Services:
I am part of a group of licensed psychologists and psychiatrists specializing in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and psychopharmacology for the treatment of neurobiological disorders in children, adolescents, and adults, with a particular emphasis on anxiety, mood, and developmental disorders. I specialize in OCD Related Disorders including OCD and Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors, including Trichotillomania and Compulsive Skin Picking.
I received my doctorate in Psychology from Hofstra University and my formal post-doctoral training includes the Primary Certificate Program at the Albert Ellis Institute. I was fortunate to have been trained and supervised in treating OCD and OC Related Disorders in children, adolescents, and adults by a noted authority on these disorders, as well as a therapist who specializes in the treatment of Tourette's Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder, Attention-Deficit Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder. Since becoming licensed, I have continued to specialize in these disorders, and have also trained and supervised other professionals in their treatment.
