Julia Goolsby, PhD
Narrative of Services:
I am a clinical psychologist specializing in OCD and related disorders in children, adolescents, and adults. Most of my clients have OCD. Other diagnoses I treat include Trichotillomania, Excoriation Disorder, Tourette’s, Emetophobia, Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Selective Mutism, Social Anxiety Disorder, Separation Anxiety Disorder, PTSD, and co-occurring Depression, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I am passionate about treating OCD and OCD Spectrum Disorders. I received specialized training in OCD, Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors, and Tourette’s as a postdoctoral fellow and staff psychologist at the Behavior Therapy Center of Greater Washington.
I earned my doctoral degree at Catholic University of America (CUA), with a concentration in Children, Families and Culture. After attaining my PhD, I lived abroad, providing therapy to individuals and families from over 20 countries within a private practice and at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. I celebrate diversity and am committed to providing culturally competent and sensitive care to individuals of all backgrounds and identities.
