Amy Rapp PhD
I specialize in providing evidence-based treatment for OCD, anxiety, and related disorders to adolescents and adults. I implement Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety disorders, and Habit Reversal Training for tics and body focused repetitive behaviors (such as hair pulling and skin picking). I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults with OCD, anxiety, and related disorders in several different settings including the Columbia University Center for OCD and Related Disorders, the UCLA Pediatric OCD Intensive Outpatient Program, and the UCLA Child Anxiety, OCD, and Tic Disorders Program.
I am a clinical psychologist licensed in New York and New Jersey. I received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where I gained extensive training and experience in the treatment of OCD, anxiety, and related disorders across the lifespan. My research on the neural and cognitive underpinnings of OCD and anxiety is supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, and I am the author of numerous peer-reviewed publications.
