OCD, or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, can significantly impair someone's day-to-day functioning. Dr. Menije offers knowledge about the disorder (including what it IS and what it ISN'T) and her take on how it's portrayed in the media and on reality tv. Yes, we even talked about the Kardashian episode!
Dr. Menije is Licensed Psychologist in private practice in Los Angeles, CA. She has been treating OCD and OCD Spectrum Disorders since 2012. She completed the Behavioral Training offered by the International OCD Foundation's Training Institute. She utilizes Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), which are both evidence-based treatments for anxiety disorders.
