Narrative of Services:

Services offered include individual and family therapy, psychological testing, and school support advocacy. When working with children, I always work with the parents to assess for accommodations and include them in treatment planning as well as the steps for exposure and response prevention goals. One third of my practice includes treating OCD, while the remainder includes selective mutism and other pediatric anxiety disorders.

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

Training Description:

My training focused on treating children and adolescents in hospital, out patient clinics, and school settings. In addition to having completed a doctoral clinical program, I also have an advanced degree and have worked as a school psychologist for 10 years, while in private practice. I have been treating OCD and OCD Spectrum Disorders for over 8 years. In addition to completing training to treat OCD, I completed a certification program many years ago and have treated many adults and children who struggle with trichotillomania and other body focused repetitive behaviors.

Diversity Statement:

While completing a Psy.D. program, I received intensive group and experiential training. I have also worked with families from various cultures in treating children with selective mutism requiring sensitivity and honoring bilingualism.
