Deidre Brunelle LMHC
I primarily treat adolescents and adults struggling with OCD and OCD related disorders. Because OCD often affects the family system, I regularly include family members in therapy sessions to educate them about the disorder and treatment and to help to alleviate family involvement in OCD symptoms. In addition to treating OCD, I also have experience working with people who have anxiety disorders, depression, and ADHD. My practice involves over 70% of individuals struggling with OCD and OC related symptoms.

I am a strength-based clinician trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and utilize exposure and response prevention (ERP) in my daily practice with over two years of experience. I am a professional member of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) and have attended several annual IOCDF conferences and trainings. I also help organize and run the OCD Massachusetts Lecture Series at Smith College. Finally, in an effort to continue my training, I am involved in a weekly OCD clinical consultation group run by well-known and reputable professionals’ that are current members of the IOCDF Scientific Advisory Board.
