I have spent the last 13 years treating anxiety disorders such as social anxiety, panic disorder, agoraphobia, generalized anxiety disorder (worry), health anxiety, and specific phobias. I was a member of the Anxiety Disorders Research Lab and Anxiety Disorder Specialty Clinic while in graduate school, and completed extensive clinical training in the area of anxiety disorders while on internship and postdoctoral residency. I primarily use CBT. Treating anxiety is my passion and my expertise.
I have spent the last 13 years studying and treating OCD as either a trainee or as a practicing professional. I completed specialized training on the assessment and treatment of OCD while on multiple internships in IOP/PHP program and hospital settings and while on postdoc. I am a member of the International OCD Foundation and completed their Behavioral Therapy Training Institute on OCD. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), the gold-standard treatment for OCD.
I have extensive training in the assessment and treatment of PTSD. I completed my Pre-Doctoral Clinical Psychology Internship at the Ann Arbor VA and my PostDoctoral Residency at the University of Michigan/Ann Arbor VA Clinical Psychology Consortium. During my time at the VA, I completed rotations in the PTSD clinic on both the general track and on the women's specialty issues track. I use Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy to treat PTSD, both gold-standard treatments.
