Narrative of Services:
As the Co-Executive Director of the Center for Anxiety & Chronic Worry, and Licensed Clinical Psychologist in California & Nevada, I treat ONLY individuals with a diagnosis of a specific Anxiety Disorder; primarily OCD. Our out-patient Clinics are located in Westlake Village, CA., and Incline Village (Lake Tahoe), NV (www.anxietytreatmentinclinevillage.com). My primary treatment strategies include Cognitive-Behavior Therapy and Exposure/Response Prevention. Individual and group sessions are offered, as well as intensive (6 hours/day) weekend sessions. Clinic, community, and home sessions (depending on geographic location) are made available. Treatment protocols are short-term (8-12 sessions), and skills based in nature.
