Street Russell PsyD
Dr. Russell’s patients know him as “Dr. Street.” His caseload is made up of 90 percent of individuals with OCD or perfectionism. He has treated hundreds of individuals with OCD of all ages using exposure with response prevention therapy (ERP) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). He’s currently practicing at an outpatient clinic that also specializes in the use of ketamine for treatment-resistant depression and PTSD. Dr. Street is well-known in his community as an OCD expert, making several television, radio, and podcast appearances raising awareness of OCD. Dr. Street was a professional stand-up comedian for 10 years.
I treat disorders commonly co-occurring with OCD such as depression and generalized anxiety disorder, as well as PTSD. I use only evidence-based therapy approaches to treat these conditions, often simultaneously with the OCD. I often use an action-oriented approach like acceptance and commitment therapy to help clients pivot their behavior and aspirations in a value-based direction.
Dr. Russell has over 8 years of specialty training and experience in treating OCD, OCD-related disorders, and perfectionism. This includes a post-doctoral fellowship at an OCD clinic, two years of supervision and training with a member of IOCDF’s Scientific Advisory Board, and regular attendance at IOCDF’s Annual Conference. Additionally, Dr. Russell has contributed to a published manual for the treatment of sexual obsessions and been involved in several published articles researching exposure-based therapies across several conditions. He has dedicated his whole career to treating OCD.
Dr. Russell demonstrates his commitment to diversity by remaining involved in consultation and training to expand and develop competencies in treating multicultural populations.
Dr. Russell was supervised for two years by a leading researcher who specializes in multicultural treatment and competency, as well as race-based trauma. Dr. Russell has received consultation, training, and supervision related to the assessment and treatment of African-American individuals with OCD.
I have facilitated the “Relapse Prevention Group” since 2017. The group was once called the “OCD Relapse Prevention Group,” as it was originally intended to be a support group for adults who recently completed intensive or an active phase of OCD treatment. “OCD” was dropped from the name in 2020 as we began welcoming adults who recently completed an intensive treatment program for an eating disorder using exposure therapy as a main treatment component. This integrated support group has been an integral part of so many clients’ recovery processes over the years, and is truly one-of-a-kind. We meet on the third Wednesday of every month 5:30-7:00 pm (telehealth; $65, private pay only).
