Dr. Izquierdo completed specialized training while at the Department of Veterans Affairs providing cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness based treatments for adults suffering from OCD, social/performance anxiety, panic disorder, depression, and trauma-related disorders. She has worked extensively in helping kids, teens, and adults alleviate recurring physical symptoms (e.g., nausea, vomiting, headaches, tension/pain, etc.) often associated with anxiety, by utilizing evidenced based approaches that rebalance the central nervous system and deactivate the stress response. Additionally, she has over 8 years of experience using mindfulness, self-compassion training, and yoga in her approach to treatment.
