Laura E. Hoffman LCSW
My practice is predominately full with patients who suffer from OCD and OC related disorders. At this point, I’d estimate approximately 60 percent of my clients are meeting criteria for these disorders. Many of my patients have been suffering for years and have never been diagnosed properly.
For the past 25 years I have been working as a therapist. I became interested in OCD and OCD Spectrum Disorders as a young person who was diagnosed myself with OCD. I found resources to be sparse, and therefore I made the decision to educate myself. I have taken countless courses over the years on OCD and OCD Spectrum Disorders. I have had supervision with Dr. Jon Grayson. I have attended IOCDF conferences and read academic literature ongoing.
I am outside of Philadelphia, the fifth largest city in the country. Diversity is the norm for my practice. Many patients are people of color and LBGTQ.
I have lived overseas, and studied in both undergrad and grad school in a major urban university. I lived and worked in Washington, DC.
