Carla Shaffer, PhD, LCP
Narrative of Services:
In my practice I work exclusively with children, adolescents, and college-age individuals struggling with anxiety and related or co-occuring disorders (e.g., OCD, ADHD). Approximately 75% of my practice is focused on treating individuals with OCD.
I received my PhD at Virginia Commonwealth University where I was trained in evidence-based treatments with a focus on CBT and ERP. Since then, I have also gained training in ACT and DBT. More recently, I have received training in SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions), a parent-focused intervention that is particularly useful in families working through childhood OCD. I have over 10 years experience supporting families and treating children and adolescents with OCD.
