Rinaldo Charles Simonini, PhD
Narrative of Services:
I have an independent clinical psychology practice within a group setting with an emphasis on treatment of adolescents and adults. I see patients with a variety of disorders including OCD, anxiety, and depressive disorders. My orientation is primarily cognitive-behavioral therapy and includes ERP. We have relationships with various psychiatric consultants who can prescribe medications for our patients. I would estimate that at any given time approximately 10-15% of my patient caseload has OCD or an OC Related Disorder.
