Justine Dembo, MD
Narrative of Services:
I currently work in private practice and independent contracting for an OCD and anxiety disorder clinic, as well as a trauma clinic, in Los Angeles. I have provided consultations for over 100 individuals (inpatient and outpatient) with OCD and related disorders, and have provided ongoing medication management and psychotherapy for approximately 45-50. I incorporate psychodynamic and existential components into CBT, and tend to favour psychotherapy over medication management.
I trained at the Thompson Anxiety Disorders Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, providing individual and group CBT and ERP for OCD and related disorders, as well as consultations and medication management. I completed my MD in 2007 at the University of Toronto, and my residency training and Royal College of Physicians of Canada certification in 2012. I have given talks on OCD and hoarding at teaching hospitals and in the community, and have published in the areas of OCD and medical ethics.
