The majority of my practice is focused on treating youth with OCD and/or related disorders (e.g., tics, anxiety, BFRBs). I typically employ a family-based approach to treatment and utilize exposure and response prevention as the primary treatment component/approach. To date, I have assessed over 100 patients with OCD or related conditions and have treated over 50.
I will work with youth also suffering from anxiety disorders, avoidant-restrictive eating, and emotional-behavioural difficulties (e.g., tantrums, oppositionality). Treatment priorities are set based on the primary underlying function of problem behaviors as well as the areas of greatest immediate impairment/distress.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes
OCD and Spectrum Disorders have been the primary focus of my clinical and research training. I completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of South Florida working in the Rothman Center for Pediatric Neuropsychiatry. My residency in child-clinical psychology was completed at Brown University and included rotations in the Intensive OCD Program and Pediatric Anxiety Research Center. At present, in addition to private practice work, I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Pediatric OCD Program at BC Children’s Hospital.
