Jayme M. Valdez, LMHC
Narrative of Services:
I am dedicated to providing evidence-based treatment for anxiety disorders. 90% of my practice is clients diagnosed with OCD or related anxiety disorders. In addition to office visits, I offer home- and community-based sessions to more effectively treat OCD, phobias, and social anxiety. I can travel to the client to conduct ERP and make every attempt to tailor a client’s treatment to their individual needs. 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, directive, and flexible.
I treat related depressive symptoms and insomnia/sleep disturbances, which are common in patients with OCD and anxiety, using evidence-based techniques. I also am trained in using Prolonged Exposure (PE) for the treatment of trauma/PTSD.
I received my Masters Degree from Lesley University and interned at McLean Hospital — a Harvard-affiliated psychiatric hospital in Belmont, MA. I have over 15 years of practical experience in treating OCD, anxiety, and related disorders in a variety of formats, including home- and community-based interventions, inpatient units, community service agencies, and individual and group private practices.
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.
