Narrative of Services:

Before opening her own private practice, Dr. Gannon has worked with or been a treating team member for many (over 100) children, adolescents, and young adults with OCD. Her other specialties include Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety, Separation Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Perfectionism, and Phobias. Dr. Gannon also works with other OC Spectrum disorders including Trichotillomania, skin picking, and health anxiety. CBT and exposure-based treatment is applied across these diagnoses. She also highly values consultation and collaboration with schools, physicians, psychiatrists and other treatment providers.

Training Description:

Dr. Gannon trained within the Clinical Psychology program at Palo Alto University between 2013-2019, where she was supervised by cognitive-behavioral therapists treating OCD and anxiety as part of her practicum. Her experience became more specialized with OCD during her Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2020 at Capital OCD & Anxiety Practice. Between 2021-2023, she became a part of the team at the Anxiety Treatment Center of Austin where she also provided the full range of care with OCD and anxiety disorder patients (ages 7-30).

Diversity Statement:

Dr. Gannon is strongly dedicated to advancing inclusive and equitable services for her clients and communities served. She focuses on employing intercultural competence for her clients’ care: respect for race, color, ethnicity, age, national origin, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, socioeconomic status, religion, spirituality, immigration status, and other aspects of identity.

I participate in ongoing training in areas of cultural diversity, with the aim of advancing positive change in the lives of my clients. Furthermore, I am devoted to an open, reliable environment to safely discuss, explore and learn.
