About

Hello Psychology Today family! My name is Simone Leavell-Bruce and I am a licensed clinical psychologist at Matone Counseling & Testing. I have expert knowledge in the assessment & treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related anxiety disorders. I also provide training and supervision to other clinicians for OCD. I have received extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and utilize the gold-standard, evidence-based modality to treat OCD, Exposure and Ritual Prevention (ExRP). I also utilize mindfulness practices and aspects of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) in my work.
Other clinical areas of specialty include hoarding disorder, health/illness anxiety, adjustment disorders, social anxiety, and PTSD. I consider myself to be highly knowledgeable around mental health issues associated with racism and discrimination among communities of color. This is why I and practice from a social justice-oriented lens.
I view the therapeutic relationship as a primary mechanism of change and I promote a collaborative and person-centered approach. I also recognize the importance of culture and identity by prioritizing diversity and multicultural differences. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! Go to my website to schedule today!
