Dr. Allison Solomon, Psy.D.
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
I am a clinical psychologist with expertise in the treatment of anxiety disorders, OCD, tic disorders, and body-focused repetitive behaviors. I work with children, teens, adults, and families providing evidence-based treatments that have been proven to be effective and that have lasting results.
My approach is entirely based on evidence-based
psychotherapy. These are treatments that are proven to be extremely effective in numerous scientific studies. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) are the "gold standard" for treatment of OCD and anxiety disorders.
These treatments differ from traditional talk therapy, which has not been proven to be effective for anxiety, OCD, and BFRBs. This approach fits well with my personality as it is active, collaborative, and "hands on." I focus on providing my patients with tools and skills to change patterns in thinking and behavior with the aim that they will no longer need me as a guide and will learn to apply these principals on their own.
As a specialist in evidence-based treatment with children and adults, my approach is most often short-term (8-24 sessions). We will use techniques to help you to resolve present day concerns by modifying unhealthy thinking and behavioral patterns and by empowering you with well-established strategies and tools so that you can serve as your own therapist for life.
I founded the Virtual Center for Anxiety & OCD after I recognized the lack of experts trained to treat anxiety, OCD, and related struggles. I believe in the benefit of being able to reach people who may be limited geographically, physically, or those who have difficult schedules and commuting concerns.
In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized and collaborative approach tailored to each individual's needs to help overcome obstacles and attain the personal growth they’re striving for. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating.
