Meet the Founder: Dr. Elliot Kaminetzky
I love what I do.
I love it because I am able to help transform people’s lives.
Exposure therapy is the gold standard of care for OCD and anxiety disorders. I have dedicated my career to implementing the treatment according to the latest research in cognitive behavioral science.
I have seen the therapeutic progress patients have made when they have totally invested themselves in the treatment.
I received my Ph.D. from Hofstra University – a program awarded for its training in cognitive behavioral therapy. I spent two years of my predoctoral training at The Reeds Center, a practice which specializes in OCD and anxiety disorders. Within Northwell’s OCD Center, where I completed my postdoctoral fellowship, I took a particular interest in group-based exposure therapy and started the Exposure Lab group which I continue to run out of my private practice.
If you struggle with OCD, I am here for you.
