I am a licensed clinical social worker with specialized experience in the treatment of adults with anxiety disorders, including panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and specific phobias such as emetophobia. I have experience working in partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient treatment, and inpatient treatment settings.
My approach to treatment involves collaborative goalsetting with clients to determine areas for intervention and the use of evidence-based treatment methods tailored to each individual. I provide outpatient intensive OCD treatment, in-home services, and in-office sessions.
I received my Master’s in Social Work in clinical social work from Temple University, where I studied clinical social work and created an individualized program of study looking at body image of women in India. During my practicum, I completed a two year internship at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center’s eating disorder program. My additional training experience includes the study of cognitive therapy at The Beck Institute in Philadelphia training under Drs. Aaron and Judith Beck. I studied exposure and response prevention treatment for OCD at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety. At the 2016 International OCD Conference in Chicago, I was one of the professionals who worked/studied alongside OCD and anxiety expert Reid Wilson. I am also a professional member of the International OCD Foundation.
