Jayme M. Valdez, LMHC
Narrative of Services:
My practice, Clearview OCD Counseling, is dedicated to providing evidence-based treatment for OCD, anxiety, and related disorders. In addition to office visits, we offer community-based sessions and teletherapy (video sessions) to more effectively treat OCD, phobias, and social anxiety. I pride myself on using a collaborative approach with other treatment providers and don’t hesitate to utilize the expertise of adjunctive therapeutic specialists in a client’s treatment. My style is warm, personable, instructive, and flexible. The clinicians who work for my practice are similarly dedicated and have been directly trained by me in using a fluid combination of ERP and ACT.
Treatment of co-occurring disorders: *Trauma/PTSD using Prolonged Exposure (PE)
*Depression/dysthymia using Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
*Insomnia and sleep disorders using a variety of techniques including CBT-I
*Substance/alcohol use disorders and other addictions using SMART Recovery, Harm Reduction, and abstinence-based programs including 12-steps
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes
As a passionate OCD advocate, I serve on the Boards of Directors for OCD Massachusetts and OCD Rhode Island, own and manage Clearview OCD Counseling, LLC, and have completed numerous trainings in OCD and related disorders such as the Advanced BTTI Forum. I received my Masters Degree from Lesley University and interned at McLean Hospital. I have 20 years of practical experience in treating OCD, anxiety, and related disorders in a variety of formats, and often give public lectures on topics related to OCD, including sitting on expert panels for the IOCDF and the Annual Seacoast Anxiety and OCD Symposium.
I have extensive experience in working with a variety of populations, including in-depth advocacy and counseling work with the LGBTQ community and with clients from racially- and culturally diverse backgrounds.
