Narrative of Services:

OCD affects people and their families (especially if your child has OCD). I work with children and adults facing OCD-related disorders. I understand how scary and perhaps shameful it can be to share with others the rules and fears that OCD imposes on you. I use Exposure Response Prevention as a primary treatment modality for treating OCD. I further use other exposure modalities to treat other forms of anxiety, like social anxiety and various phobias.

Training Description:

I am a licensed clinical psychologist, specializes in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety and mood disorders. I was trained and certified by BTTI in Exposure/Response Prevention(ERP) and Habit Reversal Training (HRT), for the treatment of OCD, Tic disorder, Trichotillomania, and Other Body-Focused Repetitive Disorders. I am certified in an advanced treatment modality called TEAM-CBT. But by far, my greatest teachers have been my clients, who shared with me their vulnerability, practiced exposure courageously, and stride with commitment and determination to improve their lives.

Diversity Statement:

I am fortunate to have worked with a wide variety of ethnic groups. It is my aspiration to offer my clients culturally competent treatment.
