Specializing in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) For The
Treatment of OCD and Related Anxiety Based Conditions
The OCD Center Los Angeles is a private, outpatient clinic specializing in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder 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
~Phobias
~Body Dysmorphic Disorder (body image anxiety)
~Hypochondria (health anxiety)
~Trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling)
~Dermatillomania (compulsive skin picking)

Unfortunately, traditional psychotherapy has 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 4-6 months.

The OCD Center of Los Angeles has nine therapists on staff, all of whom specialize in using CBT to treat OCD and related anxiety based conditions. We treat adults, adolescents, and children.

In addition to providing individual therapy, we also offers six low-fee therapy/support groups for adults with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related anxiety 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.

Both 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 just west of the 405 freeway in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles, approximately one mile from the UCLA campus. We have office hours six days a week, including evening and Saturday appointments.
