Narrative of Services:

My practice, Anxiety Treatment Center of Orlando, is devoted to treating Anxiety Disorders, OCD & OC Spectrum Disorders, utilizing a combination of different CBT Modalities & ERP, in office, online & in vivo; in fact, I am one of the few practitioners that offer out of office in vivo treatment. In the 25 years I have practiced, I have treated hundreds of OCD cases; my practice is between 60-90% OCD cases, as well as many with co-existing OC Spectrum issues. In 2010, I was a treating therapist on 3 episodes of Season 2 of A&E’s critically acclaimed series “Obsessed”.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels (ADA accessible): Yes

Training Description:

Since 1995, for the past 25 years, I have been cultivating skills, training & expertise through supervision/practicum, consultation, trainings/continuing education course, along with my own reading & research. My career has been devoted to the study & practice of CBT & Exposure-Based Treatment, including ACT, DBT, Mindfulness, ComB Model, to name a few. My practice is exclusively devoted to treating Anxiety & OCD, in person, online & in vivo, using ERP & I am often the practice that others refer to for complex cases.

My education & initial training began at FIU as a Research Assistant examining culture & race & its impact on accessing services within the diverse ethnic community of Miami. This taught me first hand that the Social Work premise-“Start where the client is”, applies to the entire aspect of their being-culturally, spiritually, & emotionally. Through the vast number of trainings I have attended, reminds me that even therapists need to remember to “check their assumptions” & open their eyes & minds in order to be effective as clinicians.
