Anxiety and OCD are my specialties but I also have some training in alcohol and substance use issues, as I completed my practicum at Sharp McDonald Center, a residential substance use treatment facility.
The therapeutic relationship can be an invaluable opportunity to foster growth, take intelligent risks, and rewrite unhelpful narratives. Often the most important and difficult changes in life are internal. Moreover, the most critical changes can begin with the acceptance of a painful reality. Sometimes it is helpful to explore these realities with a supportive individual who has some distance from the situation. I find the most successful clients are curious about their own beliefs and feelings. While they want to be challenged, they also believe in the necessity of self-compassion.

As a psychotherapist, I use a holistic approach that blends clinical research with Eastern wisdom. I have trained extensively for a decade with renowned Psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffery M. Schwartz in his Four Step Method, which combines Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with the Buddhist principle of Mindfulness. Although, the Four Steps was originally created to treat OCD , my recent collaboration in the advancement of the Four Steps has shown that it is also successful for various circumstances including anxiety, depression, phobias, addiction, and eating disorders. My work is highlighted in Dr. Jeffrey M. Schwartz's new book, "You Are Not Your Brain".

It can feel intimidating to start therapy for anxiety or OCD .
If you are caught in a cycle of anxiety -> avoidance/seeking reassurance -> more anxiety, then I can help. I help adults struggling with generalized anxiety disorder, OCD , social anxiety, phobias, and sleep problems reduce the behaviors that maintain and worsen anxiety. Chronic anxiety is reinforced over time by certain things you do that feel better in the moment: avoid the thing that worries you, ask for reassurance that things will be okay, research your symptoms over and over again, etc. These behaviors reduce anxiety in the moment, but they also trap you in a cycle of "needing" to do them every time you feel anxious again.

I specialize in working with adults and teens on the autism spectrum who struggle with anxiety or depression, or who need support with navigating the academic, occupational, or social world. My goal is not to “fix” you - you are not broken! I aim to facilitate understanding, grow your skills, and expand your options in order to help you achieve your goals. In addition to autism, I treat those with anxiety disorders, OCD , tic disorders, ADHD, depression, and trauma. I also love working with parents, offering support for parenting stress, as well as tools and strategies for managing behavioral challenges in younger children.

If you're suffering from depression, traumatic memories, anxiety, or OCD , Image Transformation Therapy (ImTT) can restore your effectiveness in the world and the balance in your life. I developed ImTT while working at Camp Pendleton Marine Base because I needed a treatment that could release the most intense pain, terror, and memories without the person having to experience the feelings or relive the memories. The result is that ImTT treatment enables a person to live without self-consciousness and fear -- spending more of their life in the "creative zone."

For those with panic, excessive worry, social anxiety, or the intrusive, unwanted thoughts related to OCD , I offer strategies that are highly effective in managing emotional distress.
I am a clinical psychologist with 25 years of experience helping individuals work through anxiety, depression, and more general life issues such as self-esteem, relationship concerns, grief and loss, and adjustment to life transitions (e.g., graduating, changing jobs, pregnancy, relocation). I also provide guidance around personal growth which means helping you develop clarity around your identity, beliefs, emotional needs, behavior patterns, and the ways in which you may have been influenced by the world around you. Healing from painful past experiences and grieving significant losses is often a part of this process.

Some of my areas of expertise include: anxiety, ADHD, OCD , depression, trauma, family dynamics, life transitions, marital issues, divorce, and co-parenting.
Working through difficult experiences and emotions can be challenging. It can be even harder to make desired changes in ones life when certain patterns have been established for so long. I work hard to ensure that my clients feel safe and supported throughout this process. By creating a comfortable and lighthearted environment, individuals, families, and couples are able to gain some reprieve from the difficulties they are experiencing. This allows change to begin to occur in the lives of my clients.

Relying on more than 15 years of clinical experience, I treat depression, anxiety, and addictions, among other issues. While I utilize evidence-based treatments, I practice from a client-centered perspective. My approach rests on compassion, as I fundamentally practice from a humanistic slant. I go to great lengths to avoid the type of stigmatizing language that especially plagues the addiction industry. There are no "addicts."

For the past ten years I have worked with children & adolescents experiencing Depression, Anxiety, OCD , ODD, PTSD, ADHD, Adjustment & Attachment Disorders, family, school & peer issues.
It is a helpless feeling when your child is struggling and you don't know how to help them. This pandemic has created a totally new and unexplored environment for our children. I am here to help both you and your child through this difficult time. I work solely with children from birth to 17 years old. I meet my clients where they are by creating a safe and fun space for them so that they feel comfortable talking about tough subjects and facilitating change. I believe that in working with children you must also incorporate their family and I encourage family involvement in all of my treatments.
