Cynthia Radnitz, PhD
Narrative of Services:
Dr. Radnitz maintains a CBT-based private practice for treating adolescents and adults in which approximately 40% of her patients have OCD or related disorders. She conducts a comprehensive evaluation and provides all the treatment directly. Treatment is tailored to the individual needs of the client, but it typically involves a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). She is committed to providing the best treatment available to her clients, which may involve (at their request) a referral for psychiatric consultation, inclusion of family members, and home visits.
Dr. Radnitz received her doctorate in clinical psychology from SUNY Albany. Her training emphasized a CBT orientation to treating psychological disorders. She has attended several workshops on treating OCD, and has completed advanced training through BTTI. Dr. Radnitz was a member of the clinical psychology doctoral faculty at Fairleigh Dickinson University for over twenty years where she taught Advanced CBT to doctoral students and supervised their cases (many with OCD) at the FDU training clinic. She has presented to the New Jersey chapter of the IOCDF on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for OCD and lectured on treating OCD in adolescents.

Earlier in her career, Dr. Radnitz was employed at the Bronx VA where she provided psychological services to veterans from different backgrounds. Currently, her practice includes clients from different cultures. Dr. Radnitz has attended workshops on Immigration Psychology and conducting therapy from an Africentric perspective.
