I completed my graduate training at Binghamton University, gaining a strong foundation in evidence-based practices. This training was CBT focused with an emphasis on exposure therapies. I continue to use evidence-based practices, including ACT, CBT, and ERP. As part of my continued OCD training I have attended a workshop on ACT and ERP for OCD in children and adolescence provided by a psychologist at the McLean OCD Institute for Children and Adolescents. I have engaged in ongoing consultation with this same psychologist.
