Training Description:

I have been working with adults who experience anxiety (GAD, Panic, Social phobia, OCD) for the past 7 years. I have been predominately working with adults struggling with OCD since the Fall of 2013. In August 2013, I received a certification in EX/RP for OCD from the Center for Treatment and Study of Anxiety at the University of Pennsylvania. A description of this training can be found on their website here.
