As a fellow parent, I understand that there is no greater pleasure than to see your child happy and healthy. But excessive worrying, relentlessly demanding OCD rituals, the fear of vomiting, social anxiety, and self-harming behaviors like hair pulling and skin picking can rip away the joy of childhood and bring anguish to the family. I am a warm, compassionate, and very active cognitive-behavioral therapist with many years of success in helping children and teens recover from these challenges. I work as a team with parents, including them in at least part of every session.
I have specialized in treating anxiety in children, teens and adults for the past 14 years. I use research-supported strategies in my work, as well as a warm, playful interpersonal style and extensive knowledge of child development. For OCD, I use the "gold standard" treatment of exposure and response prevention.
I treat all anxiety disorders, and have particular passion for, and expertise in, treating OCD across the lifespan. Experts agree that OCD requires specialty care that differs from traditional talk or play therapy. I will help you file for reimbursement for my services under your out-of-network benefits.
