Narrative of Services:

I work in an outpatient private practice focused on children, adolescents, and families. I see adults with anxiety and depression, yet limit my adult work to those issues I have extensive training in. I have considerable experience working with individuals on the Autism Spectrum and can offer thorough psychological evaluations as needed. As a general practice, the number of OCD patients I see at one time varies. I often receive referrals due to references from former patients to others as well as from several psychiatrists in the area with whom I have a collaborative relationship.

Training Description:

I became aware of OCD during the course of treating many children with anxiety disorders over 20 years ago. I approach OCD from a variety of training experiences which are rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy. After completing the BTTI course, I am actively involved in supervision with a member of the Scientific & Clinical Advisory Board. In treatment, I draw from my 30 years of clinical experience to tailor treatment to each individual and family.
