Narrative of Services:

The majority of our clients have OCD or related disorders, and we offer E/RP, CBT, and ACT, through individual or group therapy, as well as intensive outpatient services.
I treat Trauma and Stress-Related Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and other anxiety disorders such as specific phobias, panic disorders, generalized anxiety disorder, separation anxiety, health anxiety, and related mood disorders. I use evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), exposure therapies (E/RP, PE), and Mindfulness and Emotional Regulation strategies for anxiety and other stress-related issues that interfere with a person’s relationships, work or school, and life satisfaction.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels (ADA accessible): Yes

Training Description:

I completed BTTI training, including direct consultation with an IOCDF expert, and have been getting weekly, direct supervision, with a psychologist who is an OCD expert and long-standing, active member of IOCDF. I have also competed certifications though the Beck Institute, and multiple workshops including a week long intensive training for treating children and adolescents with OCD and related disorders. I have treated adults, adolescent and children with OCD and related disorders as the Behavioral Health Lead at a medical facility, as well as in school systems and private practice.

I received intensive multicultural/diversity training and supervision in my PhD program, and during my APA approved internship and APA Post Doctoral Fellowship. I worked at two separate large and diverse public universities, for which I both received and provided training, about serving and working with diverse populations. In addition, I have taken workshops and other training opportunities to inform my practice with diverse populations, for continuing education almost every year since obtaining my PhD.
