About

Over 40 million people in the United States experience an anxiety disorder. Often depression accompanies the anxiety disorder. I specialize in the treatment of OCD/Anxiety Disorders along with associated disorders of skin picking and hair pulling and depression. I work primarily with adults and adolescents. The parents, spouses and the families of the individuals I treat are often affected by their loved one's struggle. Parents spouses and other family members are essential to the success of treatment. I provide education and assistance to parents, spouses and family members who often are the patient's cheerleader in therapy.
My training includes extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. Also, I have extensive training in Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). I only utilize therapies that are proven to be effective like CBT, ERP, Mindfulness, and ACT.
Sometimes individuals are resistant to treatment. I also help parents, spouses and family members learn to deal with their loved one's challenges until he/she is ready for counseling. When working with individuals and their parents and spouses, I work to provide a supportive and collaborative environment for therapy.
