50% of our clients at Mind Body Health are clients who struggle with OCD or OC Related disorders. It is one of our main specialty areas.
I treat co-occuring disorders such as PTSD, eating disorders, depression, and other anxiety disorders. A target when treating co-occurring disorders is to address the common experiential avoidance through targeted exposures. When necessary, we include other professionals in a clients’ care such as including a dietitian who can help manage eating disorder symptoms, or working collaboratively with a psychiatrist to find medication that might be useful in conjunction with therapy.
I have been utilizing ERP for OCD for 10 years in my practice now. I also enjoy incorporating ACT into my work with clients who struggle with OCD to address areas of life where clients may also be struggling with experiential avoidance and cognitive rigidity that may be hindering their ability to connect with their values. I attend weekly peer supervision meetings with other OCD specialists for case consultation. I am attend regular continuing education seminars on topics related to OCD treatment.
I am a South Asian American therapist and enjoy working with individuals who have multicultural concerns in the context of treatment. A significant portion of my caseload is comprised of ethnic minorities.
