Program History

The OCD & Anxiety Program of Southern California is modeled after the Houston OCD Program, one of the preeminent treatment facilities targeting OCD and anxiety related disorders in the United States.  Dr. Throstur Bjorgvinsson, PhD, ABPP, founded the Houston OCD Program in 2009 and Dr. Naomi Zwecker, PhD, joined the team in 2011.  Together, they recognized the need to extend such services to other areas of the United States and established the sister Program in Los Angeles in 2016.   Collectively, they have over 20 years of experience in treating anxiety disorders.

Both programs combine several key ingredients- expert clinicians, a warm and compassionate environment, and a collaborative team network. The OCD & Anxiety Program of Southern California offers intensive outpatient and outpatient services.  Like the Houston OCD Program, we plan to open up a residential program within the next year, offering a full-continuum of services.
