Amy R Murrell PhD
As mentioned above, my current practice is about 50% OC disorders. The other half on cases, I see almost entirely anxiety or trauma related problems. I have a strong background in applied behavior analysis, and that has historically led to me seeing some with ASD as well.
I attended a behavioral graduated program where I was supervised treating multiple OCD and tic disorder cases. During that time, I attended several day-long trainings on ERP and HR at ABCT, I have been a member of IOCDF for two years now and have attended workshops and conferences through the foundation. I have also had consultations with faculty at Rogers and McLean. I am frequently reading literature as well. My current practice is about 50% OC disorders.
My practice is mostly made up of minoritized and marginalized individuals; 76% of my current caseload is a racial and/or ethnic minority. I see multiple clients who are from the LGBTQ+ population (currently 25% of my practice). In addition, approximately 20% of my clients are disabled and/or chronically ill.
Again, this training started in graduate school. I would say (like with training specific to OCD) I have not kept track well, but I have attended many trainings on these topics. Most recently, I went to a decolonizing psychology training daylong workshop seminar. I have written peer-reviewed articles and chapters on this topic myself.
