I am a psychologist specializing in treatment of OCD and related disorders, anxiety, and mood disorders, including symptoms during pregnancy and postpartum. I provide cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and use exposure with response prevention (ERP) and mindfulness practices for treatment of OCD, panic disorders, specific phobias, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, depression, trichotillomania, body dysmorphic disorder, and sleep problems. I provide a CBT for Insomnia program (4 to 8 sessions) shown to have effective and lasting outcomes. Research indicates that the resolution of sleep problems reduces the severity of symptoms associated with anxiety.
I am an Assistant Professor at Georgetown University, Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, training psychiatry residents in cognitive behavior therapy.
My emphasis is on helping individuals become experts in understanding and addressing their mental health for favorable treatment outcomes as well as for maintaining gains post treatment. Please contact me for a free consultation to discuss your treatment options.
