Laura Smestad, LMHC
Narrative of Services:
I provide ERP to children, adolescents, and adults with OCD, disorders on the OCD spectrum, and anxiety disorders. 75-80% of my practice includes individuals impacted by OCD. I take a collaborative, evidence-based approach to my work with clients and believe that by working together, the most effective solution can be found. As OCD and anxiety related problems can impact the whole family, I provide behaviorally based coaching to family members.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington, and I have been working with children and adolescents for the past 6 years. I have received training in treating OCD and OC Related Disorders through Polaris Family Behavioral Health, with a focus on utilizing Exposure and Response Prevention.
