Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), along with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) are widely accepted and successful treatment methods for OCD.
Dr. Phillipson and his colleagues at the Center have used CBT and ERP to successfully treat patients with OCD for over twenty years.
Our Experienced Psychologists
The Center is now host to 16 staff members, including licensed psychologists, post-doctoral fellows, pre-doctoral fellows, doctoral students, and master's level students.
Individual & Group Therapies
Here at the Center, we offer individual therapy in the form of in person, telephone, and Skype (TM) conferencing. Individual sessions are 45-50 minutes long and are on a weekly to bi-weekly basis.
We also have several support groups at the Center that meet throughout the week. Groups are 1 1/2 hours long and generally have 8-12 members. Please check out our treatments page for more info!
A conceptual exploration of choice: how differentiating between the voice of your brain and your autonomous voice can fuel the mindful, disciplined choices that facilitate the treatment of OCD, therapy in general, and a fuller, more meaningful life.
