Kate Thacher, PsyD
Narrative of Services:
I work with an incredible team of psychologists at Union Square Practice, some of whom also specialize in obsessive behaviors (such as trichotillomania and excoriation). All of us believe in compassionate, evidence-based treatment tailored to each patient’s needs. While we heavily utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy in treatment, we often utilize other treatment styles when needed.
I received my PsyD (Doctor of Psychology) from Pepperdine University in Los Angeles, CA. I have been a licensed psychologist for over 7 years. I primarily use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for the treatment of OCD. Early in my career, I treated veterans with OCD and supervised post-doctoral psychologists using ERP at the San Diego VA Healthcare System. Since being in private practice, I have worked extensively with many individuals suffering from OCD and related disorders.
