Johanna M Lewis, PhD
Dr. Lewis uses a cognitive-behavioral approach, including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), in her treatment of children, adolescents, and adults. She began working with patients diagnosed with OCD in 2006/2007 beginning with a young patient with PANDAS. This led her to specialize in treating OCD and related disorders with the majority of her caseload focused on OCD, Tic disorders, Anxiety Disorders, and Body Focused Repetitive Disorders. Her current group practice also has other psychotherapists trained in ERP as well as many psychiatrists and ARNPs to whom she refers.
