My name is Josh Kaplan and I'm the owner of Growth Counseling Group. Chances are, you found my practice because you are looking for help with OCD or anxiety of some kind. Maybe you have tried therapy before or have tried to cope in ways that just haven’t seemed to work. Growth Counseling Group specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Related Anxiety Disorders. Every day, I help adults, teens and children break free from this painful and time-consuming illness.
I'll help you defeat your OCD and teach you
the skills needed to be your own OCD therapist
I started Growth Counseling Group with the goal of providing specialized, convenient and effective treatment for adults, teens and children suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Related Anxiety Disorders. Qualified specialists in OCD/Anxiety are difficult to find and often limited to urban metro areas. In order to meet the needs of those diagnosed with this disorder, I wanted to ensure I was providing the most effective form of therapy and also make that treatment accessible to as many people as possible.
I specialize in a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Exposure and Response Prevention is an evidenced based therapy widely considered to be the Gold Standard in OCD and Anxiety Treatment. This therapy is proven to be the most effective form of treatment for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
In order to reach as many people as possible, I not only offer traditional in-person sessions, but also offer video sessions via a confidential HIPAA compliant platform. This allows me to reach patients in more rural areas who would not otherwise have access to specialized OCD treatment as well as those who prefer to get help from the comfort of their own home.
Please contact me via email or phone to ask questions or schedule an appointment. Even better, contact me to schedule a free 30 min consultation during which I will answer your specific questions and provide an overview of both OCD and Exposure and Response Prevention.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and other Anxiety Disorders. I received my Master's in Social Work from the University of Denver. I received postgraduate training at the Mental Health Center of Denver and in various clinics and hospitals throughout the Denver Metro Area. After several years in general practice, I received specialized training in anxiety treatment at the University of Pennsylvania Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety. I am currently an active member of the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation (IOCDF) and a consultant with the leading online provider of OCD treatment.
Clients describe me as laid back, funny, empathetic, and dedicated. I'm very casual and definitely not a suit and tie kind of guy. I spend my free time with my family, backcountry skiing, hiking, or searching for adventure somewhere.
