Our specialties include obsessive -compulsive disorder ( OCD ); health anxiety and illness anxiety; panic attacks, panic disorder, and agoraphobia; generalized anxiety disorder and excessive worry; social anxiety disorder; phobias (such as emetophobia); perfectionism; separation anxiety; hair-pulling (trichotillomania) and skin-picking (dermatillomania).
Anxiety & OCD Treatment Services is a group practice that specializes in evidence-based treatments - which are those that are supported by research - for individuals with anxiety and related disorders. Because it is difficult to find well-trained mental health professionals who specialize in providing the most up-to-date treatments to those suffering from anxiety and related disorders, it is our goal to provide clients with evidence-based treatments in a manner that increases access to those who might not otherwise have it via online therapy, or videoconferencing.

There is help! I'm trained in the most effective type of therapy for treating OCD and anxiety.
***** I'm currently unable to take new clients ***** To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Do you have a desire to increase joy or abundance? Is your intellectual understanding opposite to emotional reactions? Do you feel anxiety, depression, or lack relationships? Is OCD blocking? Is your relationship with alcohol problematic? I offer a gentle approach (including Groups) for discovering an authentic more powerful self. Life is managed, explored and understood, not cured. We can discover how to listen, be heard and fulfill needs. Transformation and leadership are about intention and attention. Perhaps it's time to discover that within your own emotional prosperity, where you can truly be in charge of yourself.

Do you find yourself often overtaken by emotions? Watching yourself get swept up in anger, anxiety, or sadness, and seeing it ruin relationships or future plans, while you feel like there's nothing you can do to stop it? We've all had emotional moments, but sometimes, it feels as if they are running everything. Like you have to do what they say, or how you feel in the moment, even if you feel guilty and hate yourself afterwards.

I enjoy working with people who are reluctant about or new to the therapeutic process. My clients would tell you that I am very laid-back, non-judgmental, and authentic. I welcome humor and enjoy working with people to shift their perspectives when things get rough. I am passionate about self-discovery, empowerment, and personal growth. I view anxiety, depression, and addiction as maladaptive coping skills that can offer insight and serve as a catalyst for positive change.

I specialize in individual therapy with adults and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, eating disorders, adjustments to life stressors, and more. I also love working with artists and creative people. I primarily use the Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) Model with clients, an evidence-based model that stems out of cognitive behavioral therapy, and the idea that our thoughts, emotions and behaviors are closely connected. Clients learn many skills related to mindfulness, radical acceptance, and self-compassion.

As a mother, grandmother, teacher and former family and divorce mediator, I am sensitive to finding the right words to soothe, comfort and connect with others so that each person feels heard, understood and valued. In therapy I will help you recognize, accept, investigate and nurture your feelings. From this connected place your interactions with others will reflect your heart instead of your threatened brain. My approach is based on the science of neurobiology, the wisdom of Buddhist philosophy, a dose of humor, and the warmth we generate together.

Many enter therapy seeking relief from some stress, grief, or pain that has become unbearable. This is only the beginning; I can help you accomplish something more profound than that. With a view to holistic well-being, you can improve your embodied health, self-awareness, sense of purpose and belonging, and relationship with your inner self or higher power. I strongly encourage clients to use creative processes. To address urgent symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, and drug/alcohol dependence, I offer psychoeducation regarding mindfulness, biofeedback, and methods for altering oppressive behavioral and thinking patterns.

I believe that the essence of life is Divine and that all good flows from that source. Thus, any strength that emerges in my work occurs as I align myself with Divine love, wisdom, and purpose. Holism describes my perspective, thus systematically exploring many areas of a client's life helps prepare the ground for resolving current problematic issues or for encouraging and supporting growth and transformation.
