Doctor creates iPhone app to treat OCD – Mass High Tech Business News

Dr. Kristen Mulcahy, director at the Cognitive Behavioral Institute in Falmouth, has created an application to treat obsessive compulsive disorder.

Trained at the Behavioral Institute in New York, Mulcahy has been treating patients with OCD for 15 years using exposure and response prevention, and  has applied that same treatment to a mobile app, Live OCD Free. Mulcahy launched Pocket Therapist LLC in Falmouth with funds she received from her mother Carolyn who passed away a little more than two years ago and support from six other people, including former actor Jim Frangione, who provides the voice of some of the characters in the app.
