Susan Wagner, PhD
Narrative of Services:
Currently my practice consists of about 50% patients with OCD and another 10% with OC Related Disorders. I never refuse a new referral of a patient with OCD unless I do not feel qualified to treat that individual. Ten years is a long time. I cannot give a total for the number of patients with OCD I have treated over the course of this time.
I work with people who have both eating disorders and OCD as well as those with histories of emotional/physical/sexual abuse and OCD. Often treatment begins with getting stabilized with medical and/or safety issues. Once those are in place it depends on the individual whether it is possible to treat both disorders simultaneously or one at a time.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: No
In addition to the BTTI, I have attended a workshop with Aureen Wagner, Ph.D., and had multiple private supervision sessions with a current member of the IOCDF Scientific Advisory Board. I have been treating patients with OCD for over ten years. Furthermore, I have specialized in the treatment of restricting anorexia nervosa for nearly 30 years. This disorder has many components of OCD. I was on the faculty of NY Presbyterian for 15 years and supervised all therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, medical students and interns.
