Erin Venker, MA, Pre-Licensed Professional in Saint Paul
I provide Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for individuals with a range of anxiety disorders such as obsessive compulsive disorder, agoraphobia, specific phobias, hoarding, and body dysmorphic disorder. I have been extensively trained in a specific type of CBT called Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). I am a member of both OCD Twin Cities and the International OCD Foundation. . I work under the supervision of Dr. Vernon Devine, PhD, who has more than 46 years experience treating individuals with anxiety disorders.
My approach to treatment is evidence based, active, and goal oriented. I value a strong interpersonal and therapeutic relationship to create a safe environment that is free of judgement. I work to collaborate with individuals to tailor a treatment plan that best fits their needs and goals.
I offer appointments on evenings and weekends to fit your scheduling needs. I am accepting referrals and would be happy to arrange a free phone consultation with you.

Erin Venker's Groups

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Group Therapy

I facilitate group therapy every Saturday from 3:00-4:30pm. The group is for anyone with OCD, regardless of what stage you are in treatment. In group, you will learn about the biological components of OCD, the nature of OCD and how it manifests itself, and techniques to combat OCD. Skills learned will vary from mindfulness based approaches, CBT and exposure techniques, art therapy, and more.
