I have been in practice for over 20 years, and have worked in multiple settings to include inpatient and outpatient hospitals, Intensive outpatient programs, school systems, and private practice, treating Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and OCD Spectrum Disorders.
My private practice consists of approximately 90% of the clients with Anxiety OCD, and OCD Spectrum Disorders.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety, Phobias
I have over 15 years experience treating individuals with Anxiety Disorders, OCD, and OCD Spectrum Disorders. I have advanced training with the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation (IOCDF), through The Behavior Therapy Training Institute (BTTI), under the supervision of Alec Pollard, Ph.D., of the Saint Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute.
I am also intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), under the supervision of Alan Fruzzetti, Ph.D.
DBT skills provide valuable tools to assist with painful emotions that accompany OCD and Anxiety disorders.
Additionally I have advanced training in Inference Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (I-CBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT).
