I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Anxiety Disorders.
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 these disorders, and have developed an effective, time-limited approach to treatment. Though every case is different, I am typically able to help patients achieve at least a 75% reduction in symptom severity within just a few months of weekly therapy.
The disorders I treat include OCD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Phobia, Specific Phobia (e.g., Emetophobia), Panic, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), and Health Anxiety. I am also very passionate about treating what is often called Pure O (OCD with primarily mental compulsions), including HOCD, POCD, ROCD, etc. 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 teletherapy in the states where I am licensed: California, New York, Virginia, and Minnesota. (My California license number is 30206.)
When I’m not seeing patients, I’m writing about maximizing the effectiveness of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety Disorders and OCD.
