The OCD Center Los Angeles is a private, outpatient clinic specializing in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related anxiety-based conditions. Among the disorders we treat are:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Pure Obsessional OCD
Perinatal / Postpartum OCD
Social Anxiety / Social Phobia
Panic Disorder / Agoraphobia
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) (body image anxiety)
Hypochondria (health anxiety)
Trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling)
Dermatillomania (compulsive skin picking)
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Unfortunately, traditional psychoanalysis and talk therapy have little impact on these conditions. Conversely, research has consistently found CBT to be the most effective treatment for these disorders. While treatment may last many years with traditional therapy, most clients make dramatic improvement with CBT in just a few months.
The OCD Center of Los Angeles has four therapists on staff, all of whom specialize in using CBT to treat OCD and related anxiety conditions. We treat adults, children, and adolescents, and provide services in English or Spanish.
In addition to providing individual Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for the treatment of OCD and related conditions, we also offers ten low-fee therapy/support groups specifically for OCD and related anxiety-based conditions. These groups are led by our staff therapists, and use the same treatment protocol as our individual Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy program.
The OCD Center of Los Angeles also offers telephone and webcam-based online therapy. Telephone and online counseling are ideally suited to people in the following situations:
Those who have a physical condition which limits their mobility
Those with psychological conditions which restrict travel
Those who live in areas distant from our offices who are unable to find specialized care near their home.
Telephone and internet therapy have repeatedly been found to be safe and effective in numerous research studies, and have been legal in California since 1997.
Our office is conveniently located in the Westwood area of Los Angeles, just off both the 405 and the 10 freeways. We have office hours six days a week, including evening and Saturday appointments.
The first step towards initiating therapy is to call our office for a free 15 minute consultation. This will give us an opportunity to briefly discuss your symptoms, as well as fees, scheduling, insurance, etc. We can be reached at (310) 335-5443. We look forward to helping you.
