Stacey Kuhl Wochner, LCSW and the team at OCD Specialists maintain a shared philosophy about the specialized treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. It is our intention to help you navigate the difficult and often confusing world of psychological treatment for your OCD. We understand and care about OCD sufferers. We are enthusiastic about helping, because we watch people gain freedom from their OCD every day.
What to expect from a clinician who specializes in OCD treatment:
The majority of your therapist’s practice is made up of clients with OCD.
Has an in-depth understanding of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder as well as experience and training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as applied to OCD.
Explains the Obsessive-Compulsive Cycle and how OCD is reinforced and treated.
Uses Exposure with Response Prevention as one of their primary treatment approaches.
Assigns homework and expects the client to work consistently between sessions.
Coordinates in-vivo exposure in session which means you are “doing” in addition to “talking.”
Is willing to include field sessions or home visits where appropriate.
Stays up to date with the latest OCD research and is active in the larger OCD community.
The Right Treatment. The Right Solutions.
We realize that you may not have received the right kind of treatment for your OCD in the past and feel frustrated and hopeless. We are aware that you have probably spent a lot of time, mental energy, and resources on therapy that hasn’t worked. The good news is OCD treatment is very effective if you receive the right kind of treatment with a specialist in the field. There is hope. We are committed to offering compassionate, evidence-based, and effective therapy for individuals with OCD and OC Spectrum disorders.
We treat clients locally in our Los Angeles office and remotely via Online and teletherapy. Please feel free to call either one of us if you have any questions, want to discuss treatment options or would like to schedule an appointment. .
