About

You’ve been thinking for a while now about taking care of the anxiety, either yours or your child’s that gets in the way of living your life. You’ve thought of it as you lay awake at night, waiting for sleep to come, or tried alternative treatments, but the problems inexplicably return. Sometimes, it feels hopeless. But guess what? If you're taking care of so many responsibilities, then you already have the ability to solve your problems. So stop putting it off. You deserve to have your best life, instead of a stressed life. Commit to making your life a little easier, and a little less stressed, using CBT and exposure therapy.
I specialize in anxiety disorders, OCD and OCD-related disorders, and also treat BDD and body-focused repetitive disorders (BFRBs), using the "gold standard" interventions including COMB and ERP, PE and CPT for PTSD, and CBTi for insomnia. I provide specialized treatment for parents whose children have anxiety and OCD and refuse to engage in therapy (SPACE).
Together, we'll use the best evidence-based treatment, because your time is important. We'll establish new habits and patterns and get rid of the behaviors that are getting in the way. With hard work, and diligence, you CAN have a richer, fuller life! Life begins at the end of your comfort zone--so find your path. Make an appointment.

SPACE

SPACE stands for Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions. It is a parent-based treatment program for youths with anxiety, OCD, and related problems. This approach is ideal for the parent or caregiver whose youth will not engage in therapy and whose family members lives are disrupted by symptoms of OCD or specific anxiety disorder. SPACE was developed by Dr. Eli Lebowitz at Yale Child Study Center has been found to be helpful for families in randomized controlled clinical trials. I also offer this treatment to families for up to 4 individuals per family. More information is on my website.
