About Us

Paul J. Peterson MSW/LCSW started practicing therapy in his first year internship in August of 2000. His first session was with an individual struggling with OCD, and this ignited a passion to work with individuals suffering with OCD and other anxiety disorders. Paul then travelled all over the nation, taking part in specialized trainings and conferences to hone in his skills. He maintains his knowledge through the most recent researches, books, conferences and trainings on OCD and currently uses the most effective and evidence based therapies. He has continued to support and train staff and master’s level interns to create a movement of skilled therapists to help alleviate the burden of OCD and anxiety that many of this population experience.

Welcome to the OCD Anxiety Treatment Center

We are so glad you found us. In the State of Utah there are only a handful of true specialists with OCD and Anxiety Spectrum Disorders. If you are any like most of our clients, you have seen a counselor who said they knew how to help you but may not have been helpful and did not provide concrete tools and techniques that truly reduced your symptoms. Fortunately, you have found the right place. Our professionals have been trained all over the nation by the founding fathers of OCD and Anxiety Treatment. We are up-to-date with the latest trainings and research. Our processes work when our clients do their part. We have modeled our programs close to some of the most renowned programs in the world.
