The Pediatric Psychiatry Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Tic Disorders Program, led by Dr. Erica Greenberg, and part of the Center for OCD and Related Disorders (CORD), led by Sabine Wilhelm, PhD, addresses the full spectrum of OCD and tic spectrum disorders in children and adolescents. The Pediatric OCD and Tics Disorders Program, originally founded in 1992 by Drs. Daniel Geller and Barbara Coffey, has been formally rejuvenated under the leadership of Dr. Erica Greenberg in 2018. Dr. Daniel Geller continues as the Director of Research in the program.
The Pediatric Psychiatry OCD and Tic Disorders Program provides consultation, evaluation and ongoing clinical (medication) management (when appropriate). Initial evaluation provides psychoeducation around the presenting condition(s), integrates and formulates an assessment based on symptoms, and provides recommendations for future treatment approaches.
We collaborate and coordinate closely with other programs and services, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Neurology’s Tourette Syndrome/Tic Disorders Clinic, Neuropsychology, and Social Work to help provide appropriate support including referrals to other resources and related care needs (e.g. therapists, school advocates, educational resources, etc.). Our practice focuses on children and adolescents through age 18 years with OCD and related disorders (OCD, body dysmorphic disorder, trichotillomania, skin picking disorder), tic disorders/Tourette syndrome, and commonly associated co-occurring conditions, including ADHD, anxiety, intermittent explosive disorder/rage, etc. PANDAS/PANS is addressed in a separate specialty clinic which focuses solely in this area.
