Biography

I earned my doctoral degree in clinical psychology at American University in 1999, completing his predoctoral internship training at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Washington, DC. I was a staff psychologist at the Catholic University Counseling Center for 11 years, including 3 years as Director of Internship Training. I also spent 7 years on staff at the Behavior Therapy Center of Greater Washington, where I received state-of-the-art training in CBT, with an emphasis on OCD and OC-spectrum disorders. I have maintained a private practice since 2002, working with adolescents, adults, and couples.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Voted a Top Therapist in Washingtonian Magazine's most recent (2009) survey of DC practitioners, I specialize in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety, and other anxiety problems using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). I also help people suffering from depression, trichotillomania (hair-pulling), and relationship concerns (including working with couples). My approach is down-to-earth and personal, and I am highly invested in helping my clients.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder

What are you proud of in your practice?

I have helped many people to suffer less from psychological torments of various sorts and to lead lives that they find more satisfying.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I like working with OCD and social anxiety because the cognitive-behavioral techniques I use are very often effective and because I feel that I have a good understanding and feel for these problems and how to overcome them.
