The OCD Institute | Texas (formerly the Houston OCD Program) offers a full-time, postdoctoral fellowship. The position provides a unique opportunity for clinical psychology doctoral graduates with an interest in OCD, anxiety and related disorders to obtain specialized training in evidence-based treatments at one of the few OCD-specific residential programs in the country.
OCD Institute | Texas is an 11-bed residential and PHP treatment program for adults with OCD, anxiety and OC-related disorders. Our program provides evidence-based treatment delivered in a compassionate residential milieu environment. Patients receive evidence-based treatment for anxiety and OCD, specifically exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
Postdoctoral fellows serve as a Behavioral Therapist in the program.
Behavioral Therapists serve as the lead clinician on residential and PHP cases and collaborate as a member of an active team along with the family therapist, psychiatrist, residential counselors and other team members.
In addition to residential work, the postdoctoral fellow will also provide individual outpatient psychotherapy, provide family therapy, lead psychoeducational groups, and collaborate in developing other intensive programming initiatives. There are also opportunities to complete psychological assessments, depending on the fellow’s interest.
Postdoctoral fellows will attend didactics, weekly team meeting, daily rounds and have the opportunity to attend grand rounds through Houston Methodist. Fellows with an interest in research have the opportunity to collaborate on outcomes data with a rich dataset at OCDI TX.
Postdoctoral fellows are supervised weekly by licensed clinical psychologists. Fellowship training follows a developmental model of supervision, with greater supervision and support at first, progressing towards greater autonomy, with supervisors taking a more consultative stance, tailored to the fellow’s interests and needs. Postdoctoral fellows also have the opportunity to supervise practicum students and residential counselors.
Candidates must have a doctoral degree (PhD or PsyD) in clinical psychology from an APA-accredited program and have completed an APA-accredited internship. It is helpful for qualified individuals to have clinical experience with cognitive behavior therapy and familiarity with OCD, anxiety, and related disorders. Experience with adults, adolescents, and parents is preferred.

The residential counselor (RC) is responsible for assisting with the provision of care to patients in keeping with the philosophies and standards of the OCD Institute of Texas (OCDI TX).
The program is a specialized, evidence-based program that treats patients with severe OCD and other anxiety disorders with cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), particularly exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy.
In this position, counselors will work with a dedicated multidisciplinary team and will be responsible for direct patient care by assisting patients in exposure work (to manage their anxiety), assisting patients in developing and utilizing coping skills, as well as assisting in some minor activities of daily living in a goal-directed manner—all of which is consistent with each individual’s behavior treatment plan.
Residential counselors are a valuable and integral part of the treatment team and report to the team their daily observations. They initiate and maintain a supportive relationship with patients and facilitate the development of appropriate behaviors, self-expression, and social interaction.
