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 teletherapy 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.
