Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a complex and debilitating mental health condition AND it is highly treatable. OCD presents itself in a variety of forms and often people with OCD also struggle with depression and other types of anxiety disorders. Spectrum CBT is a private treatment center specializing in individual (one-on-one) treatment for OCD. We offer highly specialized treatment based on the specific needs of our clients.

Anxiety Disorders are some of the most common mental health struggles individuals have. Anxiety can manifest in startlingly different ways - agitation, stomach distress, muscle tension, fatigue, racing thoughts. We have expertise in assessment and treatment of the full spectrum of symptom presentations.


Depression is combination of symptoms including depressed mood, an inability to feel pleasure, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness, trouble sleeping and a number of other symptoms. It is perhaps the most common mental health diagnosis and it is a common co-occurring problem in people with OCD and/or chronic anxiety. Psychological treatment for depressive symptoms is considerably different from treatment for anxiety. At Spectrum CBT we have an integrated protocol that allows us to specifically target depressive symptoms to help our clients overcome this debilitating condition.

Individual Outpatient Treatment

Our treatment program at Spectrum CBT focuses on using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Behavioral clinical trials consistently demonstrate that CBT is extremely effective treatment for OCD and anxiety disorders as well. Treatment at Spectrum CBT is tailored to the needs of each client. Based on the severity and complexity of symptoms and the client’s willingness, we provide one on one treatment weekly, with each session typically lasting 50 minutes.


Step Up/Step Down Program

Spectrum CBT has extensive specific expertise in more advanced, structured treatment approaches. We have developed a step up program where individuals with with their therapist either twice or three times a week for two hours per day. This is particularly useful for clients who are considering ramping up to IOP treatment (see below) but are not ready for the extensive time commitment. This program is also advantageous for those who have completed Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) level of care and are seeking frequent therapy targeting OCD and anxiety symptoms.


Spectrum360: Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

For individuals who are interested in rapid, effective treatment of OCD, the gold standard approach is to treat clients at the IOP level. Although clinical trials show the effectiveness of treatment, the time commitment and mode of therapy have led to higher than desired drop out rates. After seven years of working at UCLA’s IOP for OCD, Spectrum CBT founder, Sarosh Motivala, PhD has developed a newer approach for IOP level of treatment for OCD that is collaboratively driven and highly effective.
