Alison Leary, PhD
Narrative of Services:
I am a clinical psychologist in independent private practice in Brookline, MA and work with children, adolescents, families and adults. I specialize in providing evidence based treatment for anxiety disorders, including exposure and response prevention for OCD. I strive to provide treatment that is driven by the most up-to-date science in a way that is compassionate, flexible and warm.
I earned my doctorate in Child Clinical Psychology from the University of Washington in 2007 where I gained extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I completed postdoctoral training at Seattle Children’s Hospital and then spent several years working within the Anxiety and Stress Reduction Center of Seattle, a specialty treatment clinic for anxiety and related disorders. There, I received supervision and extensive experience in providing evidence based treatment for children, adolescents and adults with OCD, anxiety, tic and habit disorders. This work has continued in my private practice where approximately 75 percent of my patients have anxiety or OCD.
