After working in other clinicians’ private practices, I opened the National Anxiety and OCD Treatment Center with the goal of creating the type of practice that *I* would want to work in and to be associated with — an environment where everyone is supported, nurtured, and respected as both mental health clinicians and individuals.
For that reason, the culture and values of the National Anxiety and OCD Treatment Center are a important part of our practice, and I have incorporated these principles into our workplace:
- We believe in helping our employees advance their knowledge and careers to achieve their professional goals. Our employees receive free in-house training, supervision, and case consultation, so they can learn and grow as individuals and practitioners, and they are encouraged to be active and involved members of our professional communities.
- We have a supportive, collaborative workplace. I believe we each have knowledge, skills, and abilities we can teach each other, no matter how much prior mental health experience we have. Our employees are open-minded, curious, and generous with their support and encouragement of co-workers.
- We honor your need for a fulfilling personal life to balance your career responsibilities. We set clear boundaries for the time you are not working so you have uninterrupted time to take care of your own physical and mental health.
- We show gratitude and commitment to our field of work with our charitable actions. Each employee of the National Anxiety and OCD Treatment Center dedicates some of their session hours to those who normally can’t afford specialized mental health treatment by offering free or reduced rates to those individuals.
- Membership to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) and the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) (note that ADAA membership includes unlimited free CEs)
- Startup and annual fees for interstate mental health compacts, including PSYPACT and the Counseling Compact;
- In-house supervision for trainees
- Weekly training on the disorders we specialize in, treatment models, patient-clinician dynamics, and more
- Weekly case consultation
