Narrative of Services:

I offer CBT (ERP) for OCD and co-morbid disorders. I carry a caseload of between 15 and 18 patients to give optimal attention to each person. Currently, all of my patients are being treated for an anxiety disorder/s. About half have OCD, and 2-3 also suffer from depression.

Training Description:

I have been treating OCD and anxiety disorders for 7 years. I received foundational training at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety at UPenn with the authors of the most recent iteration of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). I have extensive training in the treatment of PTSD, including a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the VA Boston Healthcare System / Boston University Department of Psychiatry.

Diversity Statement:

Diversity can be an important aspect of therapy. I work hard to create a space where these issues can be discussed in an open and productive way.
