Announcement icon During the pandemic, I am doing all therapy sessions over the internet. I welcome inquiries from anyone who resides in MD, DC, or VA.
Hello! I specialize in using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) primarily to help people with anxiety problems. I have considerable expertise in treating OCD, illness anxiety, and social anxiety, but I work with a large number of other problems, including relationship problems, depression, and BFRBs, and I do couples therapy as well as individual. Voted a Top Therapist in Washingtonian Magazine's survey of DC-area practitioners, I have over 20 years of experience in helping people to live and feel better.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is focused on helping people to feel better by changing thoughts and behaviors. In treating OCD, I use exposure with response prevention. My work with other anxiety problems is oriented toward taking sensible precautions for real dangers and fostering your ability to think clearly and to conquer imagined or exaggerated fears.
While the techniques I use have a sound scientific basis, my clients find that my style is warm, personal, human, and very collaborative, not cold and clinical. I care deeply about helping my clients, and I show it every day through my efforts and my availability.

Professional Connections

I had the good fortune of meeting John early on in the process of starting my own practice. He was and remains an excellent resource to me in terms of anxiety treatment and is my go-to resource for treatment of OCD. I would strongly recommend John Chamberlain as a potential clinician if you are seeking services with regard to any anxiety-related disorder.
