I received my BA with Honors from Brown University and my master’s from Boston College. I acquired my clinical training at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School’s largest psychiatric affiliate, in the division of Anxiety & Mood Disorders. I also trained at the OCD Institute, the nation’s first and foremost treatment center for obsessive-compulsive disorder. I help adults with anxiety and OCD move past the “what if's” and live life with confidence and trust. Most of my clients have OCD themes that center on identity, sexuality, morality, relationships, and harm (“Pure O”). I also treat couples struggling with communication issues.
To treat OCD, I use Inference-based Therapy (IBT or I-CBT), an evidence-based treatment for OCD that is gentler but as effective as doing exposures (ERP). I am one of the few clinicians in the U.S. who has been trained by Fred Aardema, PhD, the creator of I-CBT. I am also the first clinician in the U.S. to offer I-CBT courses and teach other therapists.
Before becoming a psychotherapist, I owned a wellness company in which I helped people heal from destructive relationships with food and nourishment and instead learn to eat and live according to their own values. I am also a longtime student of the Enneagram and enjoy utilizing it with clients as a tool for self-knowledge and growth.

I am one of the few experts in the U.S. in I-CBT or IBT, an evidence-based treatment for OCD that is an alternative to ERP and doesn't require exposures. Rather than helping you learn to accept uncertainty and tolerate discomfort, the goal of I-CBT is to learn how to stay connected to reality and gain trust in yourself.
