I specialize in the treatment of all anxiety-related disorders, including OCD, Social Anxiety, and Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake. After developing a treatment protocol at the Intensive Program level that was the first in the nation to integrate mindfulness-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ("ACT") with Exposure Therapy in the treatment of OCD, I am continuing that work in private practice. My focus is on helping people respond differently to the physical sensations of anxiety, get some space from "sticky" thoughts, and to return to the present moment.

Before beginning any kind of exposure to anxiety-producing situations, we will lay a foundation for experiencing the anxiety differently. People report that it's much easier to approach anxious situations this foundation in place. We will then refine these skills as you encounter different situations.

People often find talk therapy to be ineffective for OCD. CBT is a common alternative but can be problematic because the goal of changing dysfunctional thoughts to functional ones if often experienced as similar to the battle with thoughts that already goes on in people's minds.
