Jessica Kieras PhD
My practice offers support for OCD, Anxiety disorders, Skin picking and Hair pulling. Together, these issues account for nearly 100% of my current cases. I use CBT/ERP, ACT, SPACE and HRT and tailor my approach to the needs of the individual while still maintaining fidelity to these evidence-based treatment modalities.
While working toward licensure in 2011, I was trained and supervised in the use of CBT for anxiety disorders and depression. After licensure, I participated in regular peer training-consult meetings focused on ACT hosted by Portland Psychotherapy and became familiar with the use of ERP and SPACE after seeking additional training, attending conference presentations and participation in regular peer consultation with colleagues experienced in ERP. I completed the course on the use of HRT through the TLC. My practice has focused on anxiety and OCD since 2017.
