I work with clients who feel stuck due to a variety of reasons: relationship troubles, family issues, or unresolved trauma. Many clients I've worked with have grown in their ability to set healthy boundaries with others and themselves; feel and accept their emotions; become better communicators; improve parenting by addressing their own triggers; grow in self-confidence and reduce anxiety. I have experience with OCD , adult ADHD, perfectionism, spiritual deconstruction/deconversion issues and complex trauma. My clients includes adults, teens and kids/parents.

If you're stressed, depressed, anxious or have experienced a life changing event, counseling helps you learn coping skills to become happier. You'll be in a nonjudgmental environment as we work together for you to regain resilience. Reliving the past does not necessarily relieve it but as a solution-focused therapist, I help you listen to yourself and explore the most authentic and best options for you. You have your own answers and it's an honor to assist you in your healing or life coaching.

I believe that true healing happens when we look within ourselves and learn to accept who we are as a person. As we learn to minimize our weaknesses by recognizing our strengths, we grow in the process.

I enjoy working with adults who are interested in working through various concerns, such as stuck points, repeated problems in love or in themselves, that seem to persist. Helping teens that are dealing with low self-esteem, depressions, or anxiety is also a primary focus of my practice. My approach will allow you to explore your feelings and desires in depth in a environment that is safe and nonjudgmental. The outcomes vary, but many clients discover freedom from longstanding patterns of behavior or self-image. Others simply get free from needing perfection from themselves or others.

There may be times in your life when you feel as if you are surviving life instead of enjoying it. Now may be one of those moments. Survival is an instinct that drives many human behaviors and is completely acceptable. Moving beyond survival requires support. Life can be challenging at times and seeking help with those challenges can be intimidating. If you are seeking emotional wellness, self-acceptance, personal growth, or help in finding answers, I invite you to call for consultation and determine whether I am the right therapist for you.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Therapists

How long does OCD treatment take?

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.
