Erika L Poladian, LMFT
Narrative of Services:
I am an LMFT at Mind Study Center, a multi-discipline mental health organization in Pasadena, CA. At Mind Study Center, we treat many patients who struggle with OCD and OC related disorders (e.g. body-focused repetitive behaviors, eating disorders, BDD). A fair amount of our patient demographic are under care for OCD and OC related disorders.
Depressive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Substance Use Disorders
I completed an 18-month clinical externship at the UCLA Adult OCD Intensive Outpatient Program. While at UCLA, I worked under the supervision of senior clinicians with expertise in OCD/OC related disorders treating patients using ERP. I also trained in the private practice of one of UCLA’s senior OCD clinicians for three years where I acquired additional clinical experience with OCD. Furthermore, I worked as a program therapist in a residential eating disorder treatment center for two years where many patients had co-occring OCD/OC related disorders. I utilized CBT, ACT, and ERP to address both eating disorder and OCD symptoms.
