Andrea Millen PsyD
My hope is to inspire people to courageously live in their authenticity by transforming their relationship to anxiety. I offer evidenced-based therapy for people experiencing OCD and/or OC Related disorder.
My specialty is in working with people who experience Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders (including panic, social anxiety, emetophobia).
I believe healing is holistic in nature and often interweave embodiment practices into therapy.
Along with providing you gold-standard treatment, I value assisting you in deepening the connection with your mind, body, and heart.
I was trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), the gold-standard treatment for OCD, in 2009 during my first year of my PsyD program.
Since 2009, I’ve pursued extensive training in ERP, including a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University on the OCD and Related Disorders track. I’ve also had the privilege to be involved in creating and implementing clinical trial studies for OCD and Hoarding at both Columbia University and Stanford University.
I am a graduate of TLC Foundation for Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors Professional Training Institute. Additionally, I’ve provided presentations about OCD and Hoarding at IOCDF and ADAA conferences.
My clinical approach is informed by an anti-oppressive/anti-racist and pro queer/LGBTQ+ approach with a focus on my client’s strengths and dedication to social justice.
The commitment to exploring and dismantling internalized white supremacy on both a personal and professional level is an integral part of my clinical work and training.
I recognize the long-standing barriers for BIPOC to access therapy as well as the impact of systemic racism, inequities, and discrimination. Increasing BIPOC representation in OC research and improving access to culturally-informed mental health care is vital. I invite conversations about how my whiteness impacts our therapeutic relationship and work.
