Narrative of Services:
Center for OCD and Anxiety-Related Disorders (COARD) at St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute is a multidisciplinary program for the study and treatment of OCD and related disorders. Treatments include internet and telephone consultation, cognitive behavioral therapy (with exposure and response prevention), family counseling, medication, and special services for treatment-resistance. Levels of care include professional assistance for self-directed recovery, standard outpatient services, an intensive outpatient program, a day program, and home visits.
I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in 1981-1982 at the Temple University Behavior Therapy Unit where I first developed a specialization in the treatment of OCD and related disorders. Since then, I have published numerous articles and regularly attended professional meetings relevant to OCD and have been active in training others, including service as the Clinical Director of the International OCD Foundation’s Behavior Therapy Training Institute (BTTI)
