Jeremy Peterman

My Approach

I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY #29395) who specializes in treating anxiety, OCD, and related issues in children, adolescents, and adults. I work with my clients to set achievable goals, find ways to better cope with stressful situations, and build on individual strengths. My approach is collaborative, meaning that we will develop our treatment plan as a team and move at a pace that feels right for you. In working with parents, I work to empower caregivers to support their children in ways that foster healthy development. Please contact me to learn more.

Education, Training & Experience

I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Temple University where I was mentored by Philip Kendall, the developer of the most widely studied and disseminated child anxiety treatment. I have specialized training in cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure and response prevention, behavioral sleep treatment, parent management training, acceptance and commitment therapy, and other evidence-based interventions. In addition to my clinical work, I have experience in teaching, supervision, and research.
