Maria Fraire, PhD
Narrative of Services:
My career has always focused on working with children and adolescents with anxiety and OCD. I utilize empirically-based treatments including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). I am also currently integrating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in to my practice. I believe working with the family as a system is important to the success of the child.
My training has always been focused on treating anxiety and co-occurring disorders. I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Child and Adolescent OCD Institute at McLean Hospital, where I currently work as a staff psychologist. In addition to clinical work I am an active researcher and I strive to translate research to clinical practice.
