It’s been an exciting few months for The OCD and Anxiety Center of Greater Baltimore! We recently moved into a larger space in the Executive Plaza complex in Hunt Valley, MD and are very happy in our new home. Our free “GOALS” OCD support group has been flourishing and continues to meet every other week. I recently became licensed in Virginia, allowing me to offer teletherapy services to people in that state (in addition to Maryland and California).  We also recently began offering week-long intensive treatment as a team, allowing for OCD and anxiety sufferers from all over to receive several hours of ERP treatment daily in a time-limited format.

Speaking of team, I am pleased to announce the newest addition to our center, Molly Schiffer, LGPC. Molly comes to us with a strong CBT background and an in-depth understanding of OCD treatment. Training her to work with our clients in the mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral format we are known for has been easy. Molly will be seeing individual clients at a reduced fee and will also be assisting our support group. Here’s a bit more about Molly:

Molly Schiffer is a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor who has experience using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing in the treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, trauma and substance abuse in children, adolescents and adults. Molly has experience in using individual, family and group modalities. Molly’s approach to therapy is to instill hope and self-compassion while increasing client’s own motivation to make difficult changes.

Molly believes in having a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust and mutual respect. Prior to joining The OCD and Anxiety Center of Greater Baltimore, Molly provided individual, family and group therapy to children, adolescents and adults in both clinic and in-home settings. Molly’s decision to pursue a master degree in counseling psychology was based on her longstanding interest in the treatment of OCD and other related disorders. Molly believes that people with OCD and other related disorders can live full happy lives with the proper treatment to address their OCD and the willingness to endure short-term discomfort for long-term gains.

So, there you have it. The OCD and Anxiety Center of Greater Baltimore welcomes Molly to the team as we celebrate our new office and continue to expand affordable individual and group services to individuals and families affected by OCD and anxiety. Check back on our website from time to time for new blogs on the blog and media pages, upcoming events, and new services.
