Stephanie Sacks, PhD
Currently, I have a private practice in Boca Raton, Fl where I provide outpatient and intensive outpatient psychotherapy to adults and adolescents with a wide-range of difficulties. My expertise is in evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapies. Most of my clients suffer from anxiety disorders with approximately 1/3 of my caseload at any point receiving ERP for OCD.
I treat many anxiety disorders, including Panic, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety, GAD, Illness Anxiety Disorder using exposure-based treatments. I also am an expert in treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder using Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy.
I completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Miami, where I received specialized training in cognitive-behavioral therapy. I completed my predoctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship focusing on Trauma at the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and later worked at the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center as a Staff Psychologist. I later worked at the Capital Institute for Cognitive Therapy in Washington DC and at this time received specialized training and attended numerous workshops on ERP for OCD.
