My experience with treating OCD:

My early training in how to treat OCD was led by Dr. Patrick McGrath himself. I’m a firm believer in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because I’ve seen how well it works. You'll be asked to face your fears during our ERP sessions, and will need someone qualified like myself to help you overcome those fears. Participate in ERP therapy with me, learn the tools that will help you manage your OCD, and you’ll soon be on the road to getting the results you want.

About Me

OCD is a true deceiver. It makes you believe that you must rely on compulsions to relieve anxiety, even if only temporarily, That’s how OCD survives. I can show you how to beat OCD, but the process to getting you better is indeed a collaborative process. I’ve been told by previous patients that they enjoy my supportive approach. I believe in empowering you during sessions instead of having you depend on me. This will ensure that your confidence develops, so you can manage your OCD outside of treatment with the tools to make positive change in your life. Most importantly, we’ll make these changes happen together.

I know my therapist cannot prescribe medicine. Just wondering if there is doctor that could give his or her opinion on what I am currently taking?
