I am an empathic and experienced Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapist. I also teach at Georgetown Hospital and the George Washington University, as well as serve on the OCD Mid-Atlantic Affiliate Board. My treatment aims are as follows: 1) provide direct symptom relief, 2) engage clients in treatment in a way that interests them, 3) appeal to strengths, 4) encourage overall treatment compliance, and 5) explain the clinical process in easy to understand language. Empowerment occurs with the recognition that mental health symptoms have predictable patterns. Symptoms are relieved through changing these patterns. Interactive readings and assignments are encouraged.

Prior to that, I worked extensively in treating OCD , phobias, and eating disorders at a practice in NYC.
I work with individuals who feel their lives are hindered by unwanted or distressing feelings, or self-defeating patterns of behavior, and who experience depression, anxiety, anger, low self esteem, compulsive or impulsive behaviors, or relationship difficulties. By establishing more effective coping skills and responses, positive changes can develop and lead to a greater sense of fulfillment. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively, exploring the foundation of the problem, identifying problematic patterns, and then developing treatment goals tailored to the unique needs of each individual client.

Among the techniques I frequently use are: Exposure and Response Prevention for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder ( OCD ), Behavioral Activation, the cognitive therapies of Ellis and Beck, and finally, Cognitive Processing.
In my practice, I combine a scientific approach to therapy in the context of compassion and empathy for my clients. I try to express the Rogerian triad: empathy, congruence, and unconditional, positive regard of my client. Using this foundation, I customize the treatment to the specific needs of the client which are unique. My techniques are drawn from a variety of theoretical positions, primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) supplemented by insights from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy.
