David L. Kupfer, PhD
Narrative of Services:
I work in private practice in Falls Church, Virginia. My specialties are OCD, Panic Disorder, Phobias, and other anxiety disorders. My approach to OCD is essentially CBT. I include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR, and family therapy when helpful. I enjoy working with people who are washers, checkers, hoarders, hair-pullers, or just troubled by obsessive thinking. I think of most of my clients with OCD as good people who think they have to be better. I use exposure and response prevention to help clients make peace with the uncertainty and anxiety that comes with normal healthy living.
