Heidi Wood, LCSW
Narrative of Services:
More than 50% my current clients are in treatment for OCD. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy with exposure and response prevention (CBT/ERP) and mindfulness.
I bring empathy, education, and experience to my work. I also bring my belief in self-determination to help clients understand their inherent worth and the power they have to heal themselves.
I earned my Masters Degree from Smith College School for Social Work. I completed one year of internship at Providence Behavioral Health Hospital in Holyoke, Massachusetts, and another year at the Carson Center for Adults and Families in Westfield, Massachusetts. I’ve been a therapist for ten years and I currently work at Atlanta CBT, a practice focused on utilizing evidence-based treatments to help those suffering with anxiety, OCD and related disorders. I have completed Exposure and Response Prevention training for the treatment of OCD, I participate in a professional OCD consultation group, and I regularly consult with my practice manager.
Diversity Statement: Since 1995, the School for Social Work at Smith College has been committed to becoming an anti-racism institution and actively works towards this goal through their curriculum and community. My professional education is rooted in this commitment. I have spent numerous hours dedicated to learning about diversity and racism through coursework, workshops,, reading, listening, relationships, dialogue, and personal practice. I’ve also facilitated several anti-racism workshops over the past couple years.
