OCD and Anxiety Treatment in New York, New Jersey & Florida

Starting therapy takes strength and courage! We are here to start the journey with you!


At Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Better Living our aim is to establish collaborative partnerships to empower people to live more meaningful, values-driven lives. ​We can work together to develop skills to better manage some of the difficult thoughts, feelings or memories that get in the way of living more richly and freely.

We specialize in the evidence-based treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), including "Pure O," or purely obsessional type, anxiety disorders (e.g., generalized, social, panic, health and phobias) and depressive disorders, the full spectrum of eating and feeding disorders, and trauma.


We have extensive knowledge and experience in the treatment of perfectionism, postpartum/perinatal anxiety and depression, as well as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), trichotillomania (hair-pulling), and excoriation (skin-picking). 

We offer individual and group therapy!
