I love helping individuals restore joy to their lives after feeling stuck or facing mental and emotional challenges. I aim to bring sparks of hope until light becomes the prevalent theme in someone's life. Recognizing how powerful thoughts are, I wanted to equip individuals with OCD with strategies that foster mental well-being and confidence. At NOCD, my team and I are dedicated to providing evidence-based treatment for OCD. We've received extensive training in Exposure Response and Prevention Therapy (ERP), which is the gold standard for OCD treatment.

I’ve always been an "old soul” and felt drawn to finding deeper meaning in a chaotic world. I’m deeply interested in others’ stories and understanding how we grow, heal and thrive. I primarily work with individuals and couples who have experienced trauma, loss, anxiety, OCD, depression, relationship issues and career issues. I’ve often found myself in awe at how the human spirit can weather even the greatest of storms. When I’m not seeing clients, you’ll find me spending time with my family, playing tennis or golf and enjoying the outdoors.

Not accepting new clients
When you don't feel like yourself anymore. You might find yourself acting almost like a different person: snapping at loved ones, feeling threatened, sleeplessness and nightmares, anxiety or depression... It can be confusing and uncomfortable. It can feel like there is a line between two worlds of "you before" and "you after". It's hard to know when you can fix the problem yourself, and when to ask for help, but what you're doing isn't working. It is possible to return to a new version of the old you. You don't have to be a slave to your emotions anymore. You and I work together to build the skills you need to cope.

Everyone else thinks you've got it all together. Inside, though, you feel like you have to fill a role to fit in your own life. You have to be perfect, maybe rehearse what you'll say ahead of time, and then tell yourself that no one cares about you since they can't get close enough to know the real you. You know how to appear confident but deep inside, there is this voice telling you that no one sees you. You crave the feelings of safety and acceptance. You want to feel connected to the people you love. Instead, you feel desperate to maintain control and feel stuck in painful relationships.

Hoarding Therapists

What is the most effective treatment for hoarding?

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) has been well-studied in the treatment of hoarding. This type of therapy includes changing beliefs surrounding possessions, as well as learning how to discard items and reduce acquisitions. The hoarder may also gain much-needed organizational skills. Another useful therapy may be compassion-focused therapy, which can address emotion regulation and negative self-perception.

How long does therapy for hoarding take?

Although treatment can vary, most people demonstrate improvement after 23 sessions, with some showing improvement after just a few sessions. Researchers have developed a 26-session cognitive behavioral program. People who hoard may need “maintenance” sessions over the years if the problem arises repeatedly.

Are there medications for hoarding?

The more commonly-prescribed medications for hoarding are including antidepressants, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). This can include drugs such as venlafaxine and paroxetine. And because hoarding disorder is related to obsessive-compulsive disorder, medications for OCD, such as clomipramine, may be effective for hoarding as well.

Can hoarding come back after treatment?

Hoarding is a chronic disorder and it can last throughout an individual’s lifetime. Regularly checking in with a psychotherapist can help manage symptoms long-term. A good therapist will help the person learn needed skills including decision-making, organization, and stress reduction. The patient will gain a better perspective and the need to cling to useless items will lessen.
