I help neurodivergent people understand themselves so they can thrive. It is an honor to walk with young people (and their families) as they get clear on their core values and grow to spend more time on what they care about. A lot can get in the way of our goals, like enjoying time with friends/family, reaching our potential at school/work...I often slow things down at first. I've met so many people who are tired of coping skills being jammed down their throat. Before jumping into solutions-mode, I like to take time to understand my clients' challenges, define their idea of success, and collaborate on the path to get there.

I specialize in Cognitive Behavior Therapy for OCD & anxiety. This straight-forward approach helps you identify triggers (such as negative intrusive thoughts or stressful situations) which create discomfort. This anxiety leads to behaviors such as avoidance or compulsions. CBT helps you break this self-defeating cycle by reducing ruminative thinking and learning anxiety-tolerating techniques. In addition, I help you learn healthier coping strategies to be more effective interpersonally, more efficient with your time, appropriately regulate mood swings, tolerate painful emotions and decrease self-sabotaging behaviors.
