I frequently work with individuals and families with a wide variety of challenges. Some clients are simply looking to find a place that they can take a deep breath and be in a place to address things that they want to work on. While others have severe symptoms or complex issues that are frightening and overwhelming where they need help sorting out thoughts and feelings while learning how to manage and navigate the challenges. Each client is unique and so are their experiences so my goal is to tailor treatment to best benefit my clients. I also run a small non profit counseling center and train new clinicians in the field.

Each of us is an individual, unique and valuable in our own right. Yet, we are also engaged in a complex web of relationships. In our relationships we have the potential to feel joy and fulfillment as we share ourselves with the people we love. But many of us also find that sometimes our relationships bring deep pain and confusion. Taking the first step to call a therapist takes courage, but what you'll experience in therapy with me is a different kind of relationship, one that is unconditionally supportive and healing.

Waitlist for new clients
Deciding what I wanted to be when I grew up was an easy choice. I always gravitated toward working with people and working on teams. I find that therapy is a team effort with an important goal in mind. As a therapist, I have grown accustomed to using cognitive-behavioral frameworks in my practice, as well as utilizing concepts and techniques from dialectical behavior therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy depending on client needs. Additionally, I am a Registered Art Therapist. Though art therapy is not the appropriate modality all the time, I often find that solutions can come when we open ourselves to something new.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Therapists

How long does OCD treatment take?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often treated on a weekly or twice-weekly schedule, depending on symptom severity and the client’s preferences. Some clients may start to see a noticeable improvement in symptoms in as little as six weeks, but it’s also possible, especially in more severe cases, for treatment to take several months to a year before significant progress is made.

What happens if OCD is not treated?

Some people with OCD, especially those with mild symptoms, may find that they are able to adapt reasonably well to life with the condition, even if their symptoms never resolve completely. However, many people, particularly those whose symptoms are severe at the outset, find that their obsessions and compulsions grow more intrusive with time, making it harder to maintain relationships, hold down a job, or navigate the world successfully.

Are there medications for OCD?

Medication can be used to treat OCD. The class of drugs most often prescribed are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, which include fluvoxamine (under the brand name Luvox), fluoxetine (Prozac), and sertraline (Zoloft), among others. In cases of treatment-resistant OCD, other classes of medication, such as tricyclic antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics, may be prescribed. Medication is frequently used in conjunction with therapy.

Can OCD come back after treatment?

Yes. Major life transitions, periods of stress, or other factors can cause symptoms to return or, if they were never fully eradicated, to ramp back up in intensity. For some, these relapses are brief and do not require additional treatment; identifying specific triggers and practicing the skills learned in therapy can help speed their course. For others, returning to therapy for a brief period can help address the underlying stress and strengthen coping mechanisms.
