Maybe: This depends on the psychologist and their training and experience. Ocd is an anxiety disorder and can usually be diagnosed by a good psychologist. Tourette syndrome is a brain based neurological disorder and this diagnosis should be confirmed by a physician with experience and proper training such as a neurologist or developmental specialist. Proper treatment requires diagnosis in any problem.
