About Us

The clinicians at the OCD & Anxiety Program of Southern California, located in Los Angeles, deliver individualized evidence-based treatment for individuals struggling with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders, phobias, and depression.  The therapists specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), particularly Exposure and Response Prevention (E/RP), which is considered to be the gold standard for the treatment of anxiety and related disorders. The treatment team also utilizes other effective treatment interventions, such as mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

Patients and staff work collaboratively. The cognitive-behavior therapist and patient design the treatment plan together and then work to implement it in realistic situations. Home visit options are also available. By engaging in treatment in real life settings the therapists maximize treatment effectiveness and build confidence in the individual to maintain treatment gains post discharge.

We offer Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Services:

  • The Intensive Outpatient Programs are designed for clients who are either unable to access outpatient treatment or are not benefiting from their current outpatient treatment.
  • The Outpatient Clinic at the OCD & Anxiety Program of Southern California provides diagnostic and treatment consultations, and evidence-based individual CBT for children, adolescents, and adults.

Part of the OCD & Anxiety Program of Southern California’s mission is to advance treatment outcome research in the field of anxiety disorders. These findings demonstrate that our clients, in general, benefit greatly from receiving treatment in our treatment programs that are designed to fit their individual needs.
