Desiree Untch LISW-S
As a clinical social worker at Palladium Counseling Group, I specialize in the treatment of OCD and the related disorders. At any given point, my caseload is about 70% clients with either OCD, an OC spectrum disorder and/or a significant anxiety disorder.
Since OCD is often found to be comorbid with other disorders, I have the ability to treat a range of these comorbidities including but not limited to related anxiety disorders, depression, ADHD, body-focused repetitive behaviors, and more. I assess the areas of impairment with my clients and we collaboratively develop an individualized treatment plan based on the needs and goals of the client.
I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker who specializes in the treatment of OCD and the related disorders. I attended IOCDF’s Pediatric BTTI in 2022 and have attended a monthly consultation group through the Palladium Counseling Group since 2019. I have additional training in Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I use a combination of ERP, CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavioral therapy approaches throughout the treatment process.
