Dr. Danny Derby

World Leading ROCD specialist 

Hey! Welcome to my website. I'm Dr. Danny Derby, and I'm thrilled to have you here. As a Clinical Psychologist with a doctorate in the field of human sexuality, I've dedicated my career to making a real impact in the field of OCD, PTSD and human sexuality. In 2010 I identified a specific subtype of OCD called ROCD. It's been an incredible journey, and I've had the privilege of collaborating with the brilliant Professor Guy Doron to deepen our understanding of ROCD. Together, we've made significant contributions that I'm truly proud of. So, take your time exploring the website, and feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want to know more about my work.

Areas of Expertise

ROCD, OCD, PTSD and Sexuality


My main areas of expertise revolve around Relationship Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (ROCD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and issues related to sexuality. Understanding the unique challenges and complexities individuals face when dealing with these concerns, I am dedicated to providing professional and compassionate support to foster growth and well-being.


As a clinician and researcher, I have witnessed the profound impact that Relationship Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (ROCD) can have on individuals' ability to engage in healthy and fulfilling relationships, intimacy and sexuality. Acknowledging the distressing nature of intrusive thoughts and compulsions centered around doubt and uncertainty, I offer a specialized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach that I have developed alongside my colleagues to specifically target ROCD. Through this therapy, I strive to help my clients effectively manage their ROCD, cultivate a more balanced perspective, and develop healthier patterns of relating to their thoughts.


Drawing from extensive experience working with individuals suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), I am well-versed in evidence-based treatments, such as exposure and response prevention therapy, which empower individuals to confront their fears and regain control over their lives. With empathy and understanding, I provide a supportive environment that encourages growth and empowers individuals to effectively manage their symptoms of OCD.


Recognizing the significant emotional and psychological distress that can arise from experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, resulting in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), I understand the profound impact trauma can have on an individual's well-being and relationships. Through evidence-based interventions like Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE), I assist individuals in processing their traumatic experiences, reducing distressing symptoms, and cultivating resilience on their healing journey.


Furthermore, I recognize the complexity and personal nature of issues related to intimacy and sexuality. In my practice, I am dedicated to providing a safe space where individuals can explore and address concerns pertaining to their sexual orientation, gender identity, and sexual functioning. I approach these discussions with sensitivity, respect, and non-judgment, fostering an environment of acceptance and empowerment.

I am  dedicated to providing a comprehensive array of psychological services tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients. Our range of offerings includes individual consultations, counseling, psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and psychiatric consultations. With a strong emphasis on professionalism and compassion, our primary objective is to create a safe and nurturing environment that enables our clients to delve into their thoughts and emotions, fostering personal growth and progress towards their desired outcomes.
