Jedidiah Siev, PhD
Narrative of Services:
I have considerable experience working with individuals who have OCD, BDD, tic disorders, and anxiety disorders. I also have a particular interest in, and experience with, scrupulosity. My approach is cognitive behavioral and firmly grounded in the empirical treatment literature. I offer exposure and response prevention, and draw on other CBT techniques as appropriate. Especially in the context of scrupulosity, I am cognizant of the importance of adapting ERP so it is effective and also consonant with the individual’s values. In addition to my practice, I also direct and supervise the NSU OCD and Related Disorders Clinic, a student clinic where treatment is available on a sliding scale.
I am an assistant professor in the Center for Psychological Studies at Nova Southeastern University and the director of the NSU OCD and Related Disorders Clinic. I completed my doctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania, and an internship and fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Florida and a member of the Broward County Hoarding Task Force. My research focuses on OCD and related disorders, and I received a grant from the International OCD Foundation to study scrupulosity. In addition, I have been a therapist on studies of CBT for BDD and tic disorders.
