Narrative of Services:

I conduct two monthly groups for OCD — one is closed and the other is an open support group for anyone with OCD experiences. I present a model that is useful for recovery and speak about an area of OCD/anxiety for approximately 25 minutes. The meeting then opens for sharing and discussion. Some attendees have been in recovery for many years and others are just beginning to understand their journey. I make a point to have the room be warm and supportive for everyone. In addition to the OCD Groups, I see individual clients with a variety of concerns.

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

Training for OCD and EXRP from the University of PA Anxiety Clinic provided a strong desire and ability to work with OCD, My approach along side of treating OCD is geared toward individuals uncovering their true potential and discovering a life to celebrate, one that increases Self Leadership. I’ve also practiced Transcendental Meditation for 25 years.nd Trauma training.
