Narrative of Services
At any given time, my practice is approximately 60-80% OCD and/or OC related disorders. I have been practicing and utilizing ERP since 2012 and have had a caseload of at least 60% OCD/OC related disorders the entire time. I would estimate I’ve treated at minimum 450-550 cases of OCD, probably more. My entire span of private practice has been in CBT specific treatment centers with a large focus on OCD.
I have experience working with various demographics and a multicultural population. I am fluent in Spanish and when given the opportunity, I enjoy practicing in that language to reach a broader population.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels (ADA accessible): Yes
I trained at Harbor UCLA for my postdoc and took a CBT class that included treatment of OCD there, and treated children and adolescents with ERP. Following that I worked at The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center of Southern California and was supervised by Rodney Boone, Ph.D. I also have done various in-person trainings and workshops including OCD trainings by UCLA and John Piacentini, Ph.D.
My training experience was in multicultural settings providing psychotherapy to low-income families. I have also been supervised in providing therapy in Spanish.
