K. Elaine Williams, PhD
Narrative of Services:
Since beginning my private practice in 1994, the majority of my clients have had OCD or an OC Related Disorder. I apply cognitive behavioral strategies of proven efficacy in a customized manner. Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is used for clients with OCD, and habit reversal is used for clients with Trichotillomania. Home visits may be scheduled if appropriate for treatment.
I have been working primarily with clients who have OCD since 1989. At that time I was completing my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at American University. That year I began working as a behavioral therapist for clients with OCD who participated in a treatment outcome study.
