Dr Osborn is a psychiatrist who specializes in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder. He has taught psychiatry as a faculty member at Penn State University and the University of New Mexico, and served for a decade as director of mental health and chief of psychiatry at Centre Community Hospital in State College, Pa.
I live in State College, Pennsylvania, where I grew up and then practiced psychiatry for many years, most of them in the student health center of Penn State.
I became a Christian at a somewhat late age–about thirty– and I’m committed to that faith. I have been married for 40 years to my wife, Rosa, and have three grown kids and three grandchildren. What else? That’s about it. I like golf and watching sports. I like reading about religion.
I’ve had my own struggle with obsessions and compulsions, and through my own (sometimes I admit obsessive) study of Christianity, I’ve run across some ideas that I know can be helpful to others with OCD. I know this because I’ve treated a lot of Christians with the disorder. On this website, I’m trying to put enough information to allow a person to understand how he or she can effectively use faith to combat OCD.
