I specialize in Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) and mindfulness for individuals with a range of anxiety disorders such as obsessive compulsive disorder, agoraphobia, specific phobias, hoarding, and body dysmorphic disorder. I am a member of both OCD Twin Cities and the International OCD Foundation. I work under the supervision of Dr. Vernon Devine, PhD, who has more than 46 years experience treating individuals with anxiety disorders.

My approach to treatment is evidence based, active, and goal oriented. I value a strong interpersonal and therapeutic relationship to create a safe environment that is free of judgement. I work to collaborate with individuals to tailor a treatment plan that best fits their needs and goals.

I am particularly passionate about treating people with what some professionals call "pure O". This includes symptoms such upsetting and unwanted intrusive thoughts. I offer appointments on evenings and weekends to fit your scheduling needs. I am accepting clients and would be happy to arrange a free phone consultation with you.

Erin Venker's Groups

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Support Group

I facilitate group therapy every Monday and Tuesday evening. The group is for individuals who are currently or have previously been treated with exposure and response prevention therapy. In group, you will learn about the biological components of OCD, the nature of OCD and how it manifests itself, techniques to combat OCD, and participate in exposures. Skills learned will vary from mindfulness based approaches, CBT and exposure techniques, art therapy, and more.
