Yisrael Z. Schwartz LCPC
I specialize in treating anxiety disorders including illness/health anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, generalized anxiety, panic, and more. My clients usually have an anxiety disorder and about half have OCD.
Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:
Many of my clients with OCD also struggle with another anxiety disorder, behavioral issue, or depression. I work together with my clients to select the best starting place and initial treatment goals.
I have completed trainings in OCD, CBT, ERP, and ACT from the Beck Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital, CBI, PBTA and others. Additionally, I regularly read research and manuals from experts in the field to strengthen my knowledge and understanding of the issues my clients face.
I have been privileged to meet and work with a diverse group of clients from different backgrounds and with a variety of identities.
Cultural competency was an important part of my graduate training. I continue to practice with diverse populations and embrace authenticity and transparency as I continue to learn.
