I specialize in CBT/ERP (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy/Exposure with Response Prevention) for OCD; I sub-specialize in mental forms of OCD, often referred to as ‘Pure O.’ I see many patients who have already completed some exposure but are still suffering from intrusive thoughts, obsessive doubt, and compulsive rumination. My approach to exposure therapy involves identifying the core fear behind the symptoms and untangling the OCD thought process as we do exposures.

I work with many individuals who have OCD or anxiety that is commingled with other issues, such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, mood disorder, and personality issues or disorder. Such cases require an understanding of how these issues relate to and interact with each other, and how they make sense together as aspects of a whole person.

More about Your Teen Media

Your Teen developed out of personal passion but grew out of universal need. Friends, Stephanie Silverman and Susan Borison, saw that their own parenting concerns and fears resonated with most everyone they polled. As they were wondering whether their teens’ struggles were normal, or whether their parenting woes were typical, other parents were dealing with the same insecurities. Unfortunately, the books and magazines they had relied on when their children were younger didn’t help much with teenagers. And so, Your Teen Media was born.

These days, we’re pleased to say that Your Teen is a leading source for parents seeking high-quality information and advice about raising teenagers. We couldn’t be prouder.

Please visit the official Your Teen Media website for more information.
