Donna E. Burns LCPC
I am in private practice and my office is located on the grounds of Sheppard Pratt Health Systems. I utilize Expsure and Response Prevention (ERP) to treat OCD. I also incorporate other types of Cognitive Behavioral techniques as necessary to augment the ERP. Treatment incorporates in-vivo exposure, imaginal exposure, and the critical component of Psychoeducation. I work closely with a number of psychiatrists if a medication referral is necessary.
I had intensive training in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in 1985. For the past 25 years I have specialized in the treatment of OCD/OC Spectrum Disorders. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor, certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, and a National Certified Counselor. I have been in private practice for 17 years. Prior to this I was employed at Sheppard Pratt Health Systems in the anxiety disorders clinic. I have supervised psychiatrists and post doctoral students from Kennedy Kreiger Institute, Sheppard Pratt Health Systems, and private practice in implementation of ERP/CBT.
