Narrative of Services:

My practice focuses on providing CBT with a focus ERP for OCD and HRT for tics/trichotillomania. Over the past ten years, 20-25% of my clients sought treatment for OCD. I have particular expertise in individuals with OCD and co-morbid Tourette Syndrome/tic disorders. I estimate I have treated OCD specifically in 80+ cases and supervised students and post-doctoral fellows in an additional 80+ OCD cases.

Training Description:

Over the past 10 years, I have received extensive training and experience in providing cognitive-behavioral therapy/exposure and response prevention (CBT/ERP) for adults, children, and adolescents with OCD. Over the past five years, I have trained and supervised numerous graduate student clinicians and post-doctoral clinicians on the evaluation and treatment of OCD. As the recent director of the Tourette Syndrome Program at Rutgers University, and the recent director of the Trichotillomania/Tourette-Syndrome Specialty clinic at the Manhattan Center for CBT, many of the cases I treated/supervised involved OCD in addition to tics, and/or trichotillomania.
