The Baylor College of Medicine Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Program offers individualized evidenced based treatment for individuals with OCD. The gold standard treatment for OCD is exposure with response prevention, also known as ERP, which is a specific form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) known to be highly effective at treating OCD. We offer a team approach for OCD where you can obtain your needed services in one location. Currently, our services include: CBT with ERP, pharmacological and medical management, neuromodulation, and research studies for OCD. We serve all populations and accept insurance as well as self-pay clients, with a mission to serve all individuals who present to our clinic for OCD treatment.
Our team consists of OCD experts, Wayne Goodman, M.D., co-founder of the International Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Foundation and principal developer of the Y-BOCS; Eric Storch, Ph.D. who oversees the OCD clinic and specializes in the nature and treatment of childhood and adult OCD and related conditions; Elizabeth McIngvale, Ph.D., LMSW, nationally known expert in ERP and founder of Peace of Mind Foundation; Jelani Daniel, LPC, OCD expert, co-leader of the Houston OCD support group, and lead of the Houston hoarding support group; Gregory S.

In addition to our standard treatment protocol for OCD, we prioritize clinical research to further advance the treatment of OCD and related disorders.
