Professional Background

Madeline is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Los Angeles, California. She is a cognitive-behavioral therapist specializing in the treatment of OCD, depression, and other anxiety-related disorders (specific phobias, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and BFRBs). Her primary treatment modalities include exposure and response prevention (ERP), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). She has provided clinical services to children, adolescents, and adults within school environments, private practice, & partial hospitalization settings. 

Madeline’s OCD training experience began at Rogers Behavioral Health, a partial hospitalization care facility for children, teens, and adults with OCD, OC-spectrum, and related anxiety disorders. This experience solidified her passion for working with obsessive-compulsive disorder, as she saw patients face their fears and recover from OCD. She has expanded her skills to an outpatient setting and continues to treat clients and gain expertise within a Los Angeles-based private OCD practice.

Madeline holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California, and a Master’s of Social Work from New York University. She is an active member of IOCDF (International OCD Foundation), attending town halls and workshops as often as possible. She is passionate about using the tools from cognitive behavioral therapy to help individuals live their most fulfilling life. Madeline treats adults, adolescents, and children.
