Suzanne A Chabaud, PhD
After receiving my Ph.D., I began clinical work in New Orleans. For several years I have focused exclusively on OCD and enjoyed treating hundreds of people released from its trappings. Since 2009, I became increasingly involved in treating Hoarding Disorder and appeared in several episodes of the TV series Hoarders. In 2010, I founded the OCD Institute of Greater New Orleans. My primary focus is on providing a full range of care for OCD. I also provide treatment, support, and education for Hoarding Disorder. I use traditional cognitive-behavioral techniques and mindfulness-based therapy that incorporate unique developmental history and resources of each client. I guide clients to discover internal resources to face life challenges with increased resilience, competence, empowerment and hopefulness.
