Narrative of Services:

I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, anxiety related disorders, and OCD across the lifespan using evidence-based interventions, such as exposure therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, ACT, and mindfulness-based stress reduction. I provide behavior management therapy for parents to help understand the nature of their child’s anxiety disorder and to reduce parental accommodations. Currently, 40% of my caseload is treating OCD and related disorders. I’m working to expand this to about 75%.

I continue to acquire continuing education around cultural competency. I have worked with the African American community in Baltimore City, the low-income and rural populations in Carroll and Frederick County, MD. I have completed psychological evaluations for immigrant youth. I have also worked with Orthodox Jewish population in Baltimore City/County and Montgomery County, MD.
