Heather Stone PhD
I have a private practice in Fair Oaks, California, and have specialized in treating anxiety disorders and OCD for 25 years. I incorporate evidence-based techniques to maximize treatment outcomes and use quantitative measures to assess therapeutic progress. Approximately 80% of my practice is devoted to treating OCD and OCD Related disorders, with particular focus on “Pure O” (mainly obsessional) OCD. The number of individuals treated estimated to be over 500. I work from a cognitive-behavioral/mindfulness model (CBT and ACT) and provide short term, exposure-based therapy with positive treatment outcomes.
I am a Licensed Psychologist and Board of Psychology Subject Matter Expert, specializing in OCD treatment for the past 25 years. I was trained at the Center for Anxiety and Stress from 1997-2003. From 2004-2007, I launched an Anxiety Disorders Treatment Program at a non-profit organization, where I expanded the agency’s services to include individual therapy, groups, and psycho-education for the treatment of anxiety disorders and OCD. Due to my efforts, the program received a $20,000 grant that was used to treat children and adults suffering from anxiety and OCD.
