Thomas P. Tokarz, PhD, ABPP
Narrative of Services:
My treatment center specializes in treating all forms of OCD: contamination concerns (hand washing), doubting and checking concerns, incompleteness and ordering concerns, religious obsessions, sexual and aggressive obsessions, and perfectionism issues. We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches based on empirically validated research such as: Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Habit Reversal, Cognitive Therapy, Paradoxical Challenging, Acceptance and Mindfulness, and Adjunct medications via liaisons with local PCP's.
I am the Clinical Director and was formerly on the staff of Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital for eight years, supervising interns and residents in using CBT approaches with OCD and other anxiety disorders. I am also Board Certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Psychology.
