Nithyaa Venkataramani LMSW
The majority of my caseload is focused on treating OCD and related anxiety disorders.
I am skilled at treating co-occurring PTSD and/or complex relational or developmental trauma underlying components of OCD using a combination treatment plan of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ExRP).
I have completed intensive training in ExRP through the Cognitive Behavior Institute. I have also participated in a weekly ExRP consultation group and supervision at Brooklyn Heights Behavioral Associates.
I specialize in providing culturally competent ExRP treatment for the South Asian and Asian-American community, children of immigrants and queer folks. Taking a first step to access treatment can be scary, especially if you have grown up around stigma related to mental health. I am attuned to the impacts of these dynamics in setting up a treatment that feels collaborative, trauma-informed and that can actively reduce your suffering.
