Andrea Umbach PsyD, ABPP
I am a licensed psychologist and founding partner at BASE Cognitive Behavioral (www.findyourbase.com). I specialize in treating OCD, phobias, panic disorder, generalized anxiety, hoarding, and trichotillomania using cognitive-behavioral therapy. I am passionate about implementing exposure and response prevention techniques. I work with adults, teens, and children 12 and up. I authored a self-help book titled “Conquer Your Fears and Phobias for Teens”.
I had the great opportunity to train under several members of the IOCDF’s Scientific and Clinical Advisory board. I worked with experts in the field at the Behavior Therapy Center of Greater Washington in Washington, DC and the Anxiety Disorders Center at the Institute of Living in Hartford, CT before moving to Charlotte, NC. I attended IOCDF’s Behavior Therapy Training Institute in 2015 and actively seek out continued education in OCD and OCD-related disorders in addition to attending and speaking at conferences. I completed the board certification (ABPP) in Behavioral & Cognitive Psychology in 2019.
