Narrative of Services:

My clinical focus is anxiety disorders, particularly those disorders that respond to ERP, and primarily complex presentations of OCD (Intrusive thoughts). Obsessive-compulsive cases currently constitute approximately 35% of my caseload (currently 6 OCD sessions a week).

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

Training Description:

I specialize in the use of Exposure and Response Prevention for complex cases of OCD. My trainings include: Anxiety & OCD training at Beck Institute, clinical supervision w/the director at PENN’s Center for Treatment & Study of Anxiety, and a member of IOCDF’s Scientific Advisory Board. I have successfully treated OCD clients presenting w/mental OCD (“Pure O”), Harm OCD, Compulsive Teeth-Brushing. Additionally, I am well-versed in Scrupulosity (“Religious OCD”). I recently ran a 14 hour training for therapists at Sephardic Bikur Holim, a mental health clinic in Brooklyn, NY in strategic interventions for OCD & Anxiety Disorders.

Diversity Statement:

While I have worked with a variety of populations, I currently service the Orthodox Jewish community.
