Welcome to AustinOCD!
I have been specializing in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) for over twenty years. I don't treat anything else. I treat adults (age 18+). Often, people with primary OCD or BDD also have other psychological conditions, such as depression, and I do treat those individuals (see also Conditions I treat and don't treat).
In 2002 I founded the Austin Center for the Treatment of OCD, and over the next 12 years, we attracted clients from all over the world and were rated as one of the top ten OCD treatment centers in the world. I decided to close the center in 2014 and semi-retire. Now I can focus on what I enjoy, which is helping people with OCD, and less on running a business. So I still treat OCD and BDD, but I no longer offer intensive treatment.
OCD can be a seriously debilitating disorder, and my goal is to help. If you're not sure if you or a loved one has OCD, or if you are considering treatment, do take a look at the information on this website, but because every individual's situation is different, please also consider giving me a call. Even if you have no intention of coming to me for treatment, I can discuss, at no charge or obligation, what treatment options are likely to be most helpful for you.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not taking new clients at this time.
I will continue to see ongoing clients as well as previous clients. You may wish to read my web page Finding a Good Therapist or look at the forms here both for self-assessment and to show to your OCD therapist. If you’re having trouble finding a suitable therapist, call me at 512 626-3900.
