Katie M. Lear LCMHC, RPT, RDT
I offer in-person and virtual ERP therapy for children, and heavily involve parents in the therapy process so they can support their child at home. Children and teens with OCD make up about 40% of my therapy practice.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help children and teenagers with anxiety disorders.
In addition to attending IOCDF’s Pediatric BTTI training, I’ve attended a number of postgraduate workshops to deepen my knowledge of how to effectively treat OCD in children. I also have personal experience with a childhood OCD diagnosis, which helps me to empathize with my clients and the challenges they face as they overcome compulsions and worries. I’ve focused on children’s therapy with an emphasis on anxiety and OCD since opening my private practice in 2018.
