Amy B. Young PsyD
Approximately 50% of the clients we treat are diagnosed with OCD or OC-Related conditions. I have treated 400+ individuals with OCD. I have been working in the field of behavioral health since 1995. My clients have described me as collaborative, knowledgeable, practical, warm and determined.
We have 4 offices in SE Pennsylvania including Media, West Chester, Lower Gwynedd & Schwenksville.
We treat a number of co-occurring disorders including the full spectrum of anxiety conditions (e.g., social anxiety, GAD, selective mutism, specific phobias, emetophobia, health anxiety, panic & separation anxiety). We also treat co-morbid depression, ADHD, PTSD, insomnia, 2E, PMAD, gifted, pain, medical trauma, tinnitus, misophonia & cyclical vomiting syndrome.
I obtained my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, a program grounded in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Following my graduate coursework, I completed my post-doctoral training at The Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center (AATC) and worked there for 8 years treating children, adolescents and adults with a variety of anxiety and OCD conditions. My supervisors at AATC were internationally known OCD Spectrum Disorder specialists and members of the IOCDF Scientific Advisory Board. In 2014, I opened the CBT Center for Anxiety and OCD. We have 4 locations and over 40 clinicians on staff.
We have staff with a multitude of cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds. We have queer identifying clinicians on staff and have many clinicians with expertise working with LGBTQIA populations. We have numerous BIPOC clinicians on staff as well as staff with varying religious backgrounds (Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic, Christian).
Our staff have extensive training in diversity, equity and inclusion. We have worked with numerous clients with varying cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds.
We offer several groups including a GOAL group for adults with OCD and a Caretaker of Individuals with OCD group. At times, we have offered a group for teens with OCD.
