The OCD Center of Los Angeles (OCDLA) is a private, outpatient treatment center dedicated to the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders and anxiety disorders. Our mission is to provide highly specialized Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This treatment approach has been repeatedly researched, and has consistently been found to be the most effective treatment for OCD and most related anxiety based conditions.
Therapy at the OCD Center of Los Angeles is tailored to the specific needs of each client. Our individual therapy track generally focuses on 1-2 outpatient CBT sessions per week. Individual therapy is most frequently conducted at one of our four office locations, and may include couples sessions, family sessions, telephone or online sessions, home visits, and intensive daily treatment. Individual therapy frequently includes “in-vivo” field sessions, during which our staff therapists help our clients face their fears in real-life situations.
In addition to individual therapy, the OCD Center of Los Angeles also offers six weekly therapy/support groups for adults with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related conditions. All of our groups are led by our professional staff therapists, and use the same treatment protocol as our individual Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy program. All meetings are conveniently scheduled on weekday evenings or Saturdays, and are limited to eight (8) members. To learn more about our weekly groups for adults with OCD and related conditions, click here.
Online Therapy and Phone Therapy
We also offer webcam-based online therapy and telephone therapy to clients around the world. Both telephone and online therapy have been found by numerous research studies to be as effective as traditional face-to-face therapy, and have been legal in California since 1997. Telephone and online therapy are cost-effective options for clients who have physical and/or psychological limitations that restrict their ability to come to our office, and for those in remote areas who cannot find specialized treatment close to their home.

The OCD Center of Los Angeles also offers an intensive treatment program for those suffering with OCD and related anxiety based conditions. This program is designed to meet the needs of those for whom standard outpatient treatment is either unavailable or insufficient. Our intensive outpatient treatment program is ideal for clients from other states or countries who cannot find effective therapy near to their homes, and for those whose symptoms require a more rigorous treatment protocol.
