Patricia M. Perrin, PhD
Narrative of Services:
About 80 percent of my practice consists of individuals with OCD, and the rest consists mostly of individuals with other anxiety disorders and OCD spectrum disorders. Since 1996 I have treated hundreds of patients with OCD . I especially enjoy treating primarily obsessional OCD and have given numerous talks on this and other OCD topics. I also treat postpartum OCD, Tourettic OCD, hoarding, perfectionism, OCPD, and OCD spectrum disorders, e.g., trichotillomania, skin-picking, and compulsive shopping. Additionally, I treat adult ADHD, eating disorders, panic disorder, GAD, and SAD. I treat all ages with OCD or trichotillomania. Intensive (e.g., daily) treatment is also available.
I received my PhD from Florida State University in 1984. I am a licensed psychologist, have been in practice since 1986, have treated OCD since 1996, was trained in the IOCDF’s Behavior Therapy Training Institute in 1997, and have specialized in OCD since then. My practice is the OCD and Anxiety Treatment Center of Houston. My primary treatment approach is cognitive-behavioral therapy, mostly exposure and response prevention techniques with OCD, and as an adjunct, mindfulness.
