Training Description:

I am extensively trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy for OCD and related disorders (e.g., BDD, compulsive hair-pulling) as well as other anxiety disorders (e.g., social phobia, separation anxiety disorder). I began treating OCD and related disorders in children, adolescents, and adults as a graduate student at Binghamton University (State University of New York), where I served as a clinician in the Binghamton Anxiety Disorders Clinic from 2004 to 2009. I completed both a predoctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship at the VA Boston Healthcare system, where I received additional training in cognitive-behavioral therapy. I subsequently served as a researcher and clinician at the Body Dysmorphic Disorder Program at Rhode Island Hospital/Brown University for two years. I participated in the IOCDF’s Behavior Therapy Training Institute in 2012.
