Do you struggle with intrusive thoughts, images, impulses or urges that cause you anxiety? Are you confined to a personal prison due to your compulsions? You’re not alone. Obsessive compulsive disorder can be incredibly debilitating, but there is hope. You can take back control of your life, and I can help you get there.
I work with folks who are experiencing the symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder. Through exposure response prevention therapy, I’ve supported folks to take back their life, and lean into the uncertainty in as little as 15-25 sessions. Together, you and I will face your fears, tackle OCD to the ground, and get you back a sense of peace.
Intrusive thoughts, images, urges and impulses can be incredibly scary, embarrassing and flat out exhausting. With lived experience of OCD, I understand that taking the first step towards recovery can be doubtful, but you can do it. Let’s chat, and get you there.
