Specializes in Clinical Psychology

CBT is typically the first line of treatment and research suggests is probably the most effective option. Of the CBT techniques Exposure-Response Prevention therapy is the most supported by research. Not all therapists are equally knowledgeable and skilled, and recommend you get a referral from someone you trust or interview a number of providers.

It is best to consult with a Clinical Psychologist who has expertise in multiple forms of treatment. if you had a physical exam by a Dr. & don't have a physical illness, consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy with ZOOM sessions & a Psychiatrist for medication.. Fears and anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.
