Douglas Zimmerman M.A. Ed., LCSW Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (BTTI Certified)


Mr. Zimmerman's Manhattan ­based psychotherapy practice is tailored per individual. He specializes in treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and associated issues such as Anxiety, Depression, and Relationship Difficulties.

Mr Zimmerman's thought regarding the treatment of OCD: "If you are stuck in an obsessive rhythm and compulsive circle of checking and ruminating – ­scrupulosity, religiosity, seeking perfection and certainty, I will help you to move out of that hell via ERP/CBT (behavioral techniques) and psychodynamic processing. At first, we will bring the symptoms toward remission; and then, through understanding the nature of the symptoms, a deeper, and long term, stronger, healing usually occurs. ­ 

As a psychoanalytic, and behavioral, psychotherapist, Mr. Zimmerman will help you to understand thoughts and behaviors that limit your productivity; old behaviors, based on faulty thinking, and ties to distorted associations, both in the past and present, take on different meanings, and thus one is free to change.
