Anja Schmitz, PhD

Social Worker
870 Market St
San Francisco, California 94102

Narrative of Services:

Most of my clients feel stuck with anxiety and OCD, as well as difficulties during life transitions. I received training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), which are all evidence-based treatments.

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

Training Description:

I always had a special interest in anxiety ever since I started studying psychology in 1998 and have been focussed on research and training in this area ever since. I received a PhD in Psychology in Germany, where I also trained and taught how to treat OCD and anxiety disorders. I have been treating clients with anxiety and OCD in private practice in San Francisco since 2016 and am part of a weekly peer consultation group that focuses on treating anxiety-related disorders. I completed the BTTI in 2019.

Diversity Statement:

As an immigrant, I am especially sensitive to issues of acculturation.
