Lourdes M. Valdes, PhD
My practice focuses on treating anxiety and treating OCD is a big part of that. About 40% of my patients have either OCD or OC Related disorders. I have likely worked with over 50 clients with OCD.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 30 years of experience in mental health. Fully bilingual in English and Spanish, I specialize in treating anxiety in children and adolescents. I have treated OCD for over 20 years using cognitive behavioral therapy including exposure response prevention.
My practice embraces diversity and inclusion. I foster an open, welcoming environment and provide affirming care for people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and identities. You are most welcome here and can rest assured that this is a safe space.
I have taken many courses and attended many seminars on cultural competency and treating diverse populations. As a Latina woman, I am acutely aware of cultural diversity and the uniqueness we each bring.
