- Dr. Shlachter is an excellent therapist! Going to therapy has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have been coping with OCD my whole life, but I got to a place last year where I was truly suffering and none of my usual coping mechanisms were working. Working with Dr. Shlachter, I gained so many new tools to help with my OCD, to understand it better, and ultimately get to a place where I feel confident in managing it on my own. Looking back, I would have never thought this time last year that I could be as at peace with my OCD as I am now. It took so much courage for me to start going to therapy, but I’m so glad I did! Life-changing. Thank you!!!!
- Dr. Jenna provided phenomenal treatment for my Harm OCD. She also equipped me with tools to use in the future to combat other forms of anxiety. I would recommend her services to anyone seeking help for an anxiety disorder.
- I am so thankful for the help my son received from Dr. Shlachter. She helped our family through a very unexpected, challenging time. My son was very comfortable talking with her. She had a positive approach which helped normalize the anxiety symptoms my son was experiencing. I am so thankful we found Anxiety Solutions and plan to use their services in the future.

Sarah’s Success Story:
From Worrying about Everything to Being Peaceful and Present with Her Family
Sarah had dealt with some anxiety most of her life, but recently she started feeling anxious out of the blue. She felt like there was no real reason for it, it just seemed random. This made her feel even worse because she felt like she shouldn’t be anxious.
She would spend hours thinking about worst-case scenarios and all of the possible “what if’s” so that she would feel fully prepared for anything.
She became consumed by worries about something happening to her child, husband, or dog, and she would check in on them constantly throughout the day. Eventually, she worried that the anxiety would never go away
Then Sarah heard about Anxiety Solutions and gave it a try, despite feeling helpless.
After a few sessions of Exposure Therapy with me, Sarah’s anxiety decreased dramatically.
She used new skills and approaches to deal with her worries. Sarah felt hopeful about her future as she learned to let go of the agonizing thoughts that used to consume her.
By the end of treatment, Sarah felt like a different person.
She was finally able to enjoy her time both with her family and at work, and for the first time in her life she felt like she really had relief from anxiety.
Jeremy’s Success Story:
From Test-Taking Anxiety And OCD To Newfound Confidence and Less Stress Over School
Jeremy had always been a high-achiever and a perfectionist. After starting high school, he became so anxious about grades that he began spending hours checking his answers on assignments and redoing homework to ensure that he didn’t miss anything. He also felt he had to repeatedly check to make sure doors were locked when he left the house and had trouble driving because he would drive in circles to make sure he hadn’t hit anybody.
It became clear to Jeremy’s parents that he had Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
When his parents became exhausted by Jeremy’s behaviors, they decided to try Exposure Therapy for his OCD, which they had heard about from a friend.
At Anxiety Solutions, I showed Jeremy how to face his fears, and he quickly learned how to tolerate uncertainty and embrace mistakes.
His parents felt relieved even after the first session when we made a behavioral plan that they put into practice right away. I showed them exactly how to respond when Jeremy did his OCD behaviors, and I helped them learn how they could best help him at home.
After several sessions, Jeremy was feeling more relaxed and by the end of treatment, he felt like a normal kid. He stopped worrying about school, got homework done quickly, and stopped his checking behaviors.

Meet Our Reno Anxiety Specialist
My passion for specializing in anxiety and OCD began during my graduate training when I discovered the therapeutic approach of Exposure Therapy, which I was drawn to because it is both highly effective and also fits my personality.
I find great enjoyment in taking an active role in my clients’ journeys toward relieving anxiety, moving out of their comfort zone, and living more fully. I have felt profoundly inspired by the immense bravery and resilience of the anxious clients I treat.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Colorado College, and both my Master’s and Doctorate Degrees in Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver.
