OCD Specialist for Eating Disorder Treatment Teams
A 2004 study found that 64% of individuals with eating disorders have at least one anxiety disorder and that 41% of these people have OCD.
I have over 20 years of experience treating eating disorders. When clients are at a healthy weight or are ready to address their OCD or related disorder, I am available to temporarily be a part of the treatment team along with the eating disorder therapist and other team members to do Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD and related disorders.
