About Marion Rodrique

At GroundWork Counseling, I specialize in working with adults who are suffering from OCD and anxiety disorders (e.g. panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, health anxiety, and phobias). My treatment approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with an emphasis on Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) as well as Acceptance-Based Strategies. I became certified in CBT and REBT after completing extensive training at The Albert Ellis Institute in New York City and I have received specific training for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder from Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy and I am a graduate of the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation’s Behavioral Therapy Training Institute (BTTI) in Houston, Texas. Less than 1% of mental health professionals in the country have received this level of specialized training for the treatment of OCD. I am also a Diplomate of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through the Academy of Cognitive Therapists.

I am a Nationally Certified Counselor, a member of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy, the American Counseling Association and the International OCD Foundation. To keep informed of the latest research and treatment approaches, I regularly attend National CBT and OCD conferences and seminars. My approach to therapy includes planning evidenced-based interventions with my clients that are tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual and incorporates each client’s values. I help clients to understand and manage negative emotions, and build skills to tolerate and decrease anxiety. I have experience working with adults who suffer from a wide variety of obsessions and compulsions related to OCD. I have worked with individuals with obsessions related to contamination (e.g. germs, toxins), fears of losing control (e.g. acting on impulse, violent images), fears related to harm (e.g. being responsible), perfectionism (e.g. evenness, exactness, losing things), and unwanted sexual thoughts (e.g. sexual molestation, same-sex, perverse thoughts). I am LGBTQ affirming and I offer a warm, non-judgmental environment. I approach each client with determination, enthusiasm and a good sense of humor.
