Narrative of Services:
Cognitive Behavioral Growth, LLC (“CBG Chicago”) is a group private practice primarily focused on clinical populations with anxiety disorders and OCD. We offer outpatient treatment for OCD and OC related disorders using evidence-based treatment methods, including ERP, CBT, and ACT. We provide services in the office, the community, and clients’ homes, including use of telehealth when appropriate to facilitate exposure work.
My clinical experience with OCD treatment started in 2008 at the OCDI at McLean Hospital, where I received training while completing the PhD program at Harvard. Following a full-time internship at McLean Hospital (2011-2012) under supervision of a leader in the OCD field, I have continued to be interested and engaged in treating OCD throughout my clinical career. This includes serving as a licensed psychologist in private practice for over 7 years, and co-authoring a treatment manual that addresses the implementation of effective ERP for OCD in children and adolescents.
