I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). I subspecialize in the treatment of Pure O – OCD with primarily mental compulsions – including HOCD, POCD, ROCD, etc.
I believe that effective CBT requires a clear understanding of how these disorders work, which facilitates a precise approach to treatment. As a specialist, I have spent thousands of hours with patients suffering from various forms of OCD and anxiety, and have developed a systematic, time-limited approach to treating these issues.
In addition to OCD and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), I provide treatment for social phobia, specific phobia (e.g., emetophobia), agoraphobia and panic disorder, body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), and health anxiety.
I happily work with patients who also have borderline personality disorder (BPD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
I see patients in person at my office in Beverly Hills, California. I also see patients via telehealth in the states where I am licensed: California, New York, Florida, Virginia, and Minnesota. (My California license number is 30206.)
When I’m not seeing patients, I’m writing about cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety disorders and OCD.
