Velizar Nikiforov LCPC
I specialize in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based approaches to treating anxiety and mood disorders. My primary specialization is in treating OCD using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), the type of CBT that decades of research have shown to be most effective in helping people manage and recover from OCD. At any time, at least half of the clients I am working with are focused on addressing OCD.
I have been working with people experiencing OCD and using CBT and ERP since 2014. During this time, I have been attending consultation groups for OCD specialists through OCD Midwest as well as workshops and conferences on the topic. More recently, I extended my specialization by completing the BTTI training through IOCDF.
