Matthew L. Free PhD
I have dedicated all my academic and professional life to the study and treatment of anxiety and OCD-related disorders. About 90% of my clients have OCD. Some have mild anxiety/OCD, or are new to therapy. Others experience very severe symptoms, have participated in residential or intensive programs (e.g., IOP, PHP), or have seen a number of therapists in the past. I have years of experience providing individual therapy, facilitating OCD support groups, and providing consultation to families and loved ones.
