About

My ideal client is one who knows they need to make changes and are willing to do the work of therapy. My practice is specialized to help those with OCD, anxiety, and related disorders but I am also a gender therapist. My office is a safe space where you can be you.
I specialize in OCD and anxiety treatment, utilizing CBT, E+RP, and mindfulness. I have 5 years of specialized training in the treatment of OCD. I am also certified in Animal Assisted Psychotherapy. I offer traditional in office therapy, as well as online.
I not only treat OCD, I have OCD. I know what it is to struggle with intrusive thoughts and how small the world becomes. Helping people open their world and reclaim their lives is one of my great passions. And this isn't just for OCD. A closet is no where to live. Let me help you be your best most authentic self.
