Patricia Thornton PhD
My practice is primarily focused on the treatment of anxiety disorders and OCD in adolescents and adults. About seventy five percent of my practice is for the treatment of OCD. I utilize CBT, and in particular ERP for my OCD patients. I also treat body-focused repetitive behaviors. I am a preferred provider for the treatment of anxiety disorders and OCD for NYU students. My office is in Manhattan on the Upper West Side.
Often patients will present for treatment with other issues that need to be addressed in addition to OCD. In particular, issues related to family conflict, accommodation, and marital discord co-occur in the treatment of OCD. I have extensive training and experience in the treatment of families and couples.
I provide teletherapy for patients in CT and NY.
I received my PhD from NYU and have treated OCD for over fifteen years. I attend professional workshops on a regular basis to keep abreast of current research and treatment techniques. I recently participated as a therapist in Reid Wilson’s intensive treatment of OCD patients in Los Angeles.
