I treat anxiety and OCD in teens and adults using a user-friendly cognitive-behavioral approach.
As a clinical psychologist, I help individuals who are struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, and loss. I teach my clients to practice what I call "the reverse golden rule": treat yourself as you would treat others! We are often so critical of ourselves, while with a friend we would be kind, supportive, compassionate. My 20+ years of experience have given me the tools to work using an eclectic approach that I tailor to each client. I offer a comfortable, safe environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings, where you can feel heard, understood, and validated.

Treating OCD and anxiety disorders require specialized training and experience.
Do you feel controlled by anxiety or OCD ? Feeling like you have to constantly seek reassurance or perform rituals to feel better. These disorders operate on what is called a Vicious Cycle: 1) encounter trigger/ obsessive thought 2) experience distress 3) engage in compulsions or safety behavior/s, which leads to 4) relief. The frustrating part about this cycle is that the relief is short-lived. Before you know it, the obsessive fear and compulsions are back, taking up more time and mental resources to cope. The good news is that together, we can end the cycle and find long-term relief.

I allocate my time and practice between two specific and unique issues: one being sexually related problems, the other being OCD . With sexually related issues, they can show up as relationship problems, infidelity, arousal discrepancy, or LGBT matters. Likewise, with OCD , there are many different forms and subtypes: harm, scrupulosity, contamination, sexual, symmetry/order/balance/just right. I am trained and experienced in both fields, utilizing tools and interventions to treat one or the other, and sometimes both.

I help children, teens, adults and families to overcome anxiety, divorce, grief, ADHD, OCD , self-esteem issues and more. Do you suffer from excessive fears and anxieties? Even in the best situations, everyone experiences some anxiety in the form of worry, apprehension or fear. These worries become a significant problem when it impacts your ability to function, and avoidance becomes an automatic response. Help is needed when you feel constantly keyed up and reassurances are ineffective in helping you move through the anxiety.

I have spent the last decade passionate about evidenced-based treatments for OCD & Eating Disorders.
I am an Associate Therapist at Dr. McCurdy-McKinnon & Associates: Eating Disorders Clinic, specializing in disordered eating and OCD . Many folks seeking my support may have been struggling in secret for a while, experiencing uncertainty, or believing they "should've" figured it out themselves by now. Typically, my clients face a lot of future worry, have fears of judgement or failure, and cannot seem to turn that self-critical voice's volume down. Importantly: I am anti-diet culture, fat positive, weight inclusive, HAES-alligned. I am LGBTQIA+ allied, neurodiversity affirming, and committed to equity, inclusion, and anti-racism

I practice each intervention through distinctive situations my clients may experience when living with trauma and mental health which can develop symptoms of depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and co-occurring addictive disorders.
Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

I have worked extensively with clients coping with various life-transitions, anxiety, OCD , ADHD, depression, grief and loss, sexual abuse, divorce, PTSD, and trauma recovery.
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I work collaboratively with clients to process painful emotions, navigate life-stressors, gain new insights, and take practical steps toward improved self-care and healthy pattern changes. My approach is insight-oriented, working from the assumption that the better you know yourself, the better you will function. Insight-oriented psychotherapy strives to teach you how and why you function in the ways you do, and to clarify your motivations. It gives you self-knowledge. Most of all, it gives you freedom to chose a different path and be the agent of positive change.

People with personality disorders, neurodivergence (ADHD, ASD+), substance use, eating disorders, trauma, self-injury, OCD features. I enjoy helping others with more moderate issues too, like young folks struggling to "adult".

This includes your life experiences, culture, current needs, why you are seeking professional services, and what goals you might have for your time with me. Reaching out for help and accepting support can be challenging for many people. Let's discover together what change you want to happen and then work toward it!
