We specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), particularly Exposure and Response Prevention (E/RP) and other effective treatment techniques for OCD, anxiety and anxiety-related disorders.
McLean OCD Institute // Houston delivers individualized evidence-based treatment for individuals struggling with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders, phobias, and depression. We offer four levels of care: Residential Support Program, Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Individualized Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Outpatient Services for adults, adolescents and children.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes
In graduate school, I was trained in advanced level CBT courses and practicum for anxiety and depression. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Houston OCD Program (now the McLean OCD Institute // Houston), where I primarily treated obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety disorders, and depression at the outpatient and intensive outpatient levels of care.
Cultural competency was an important part of my graduate training. I trained in a variety of placements in the tri-state area and Houston, which allowed me to gain experience treating various populations. I strive to gain cultural competence through continuing education.
