About

I have a background working with teens and adults who suffer from Anxiety disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders (OCD), Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as numerous other related psychological conditions and behavioral concerns. Cognitive Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention are evidence-based practices that have been shown to be highly effective with anxiety and OCD disorders. Cognitive therapy is a structured and direct form of psychological treatment and each plan is individually tailored to provide the best outcome and support.
I am an associate professional clinical counselor working at OC Anxiety Center specializing in anxiety and related disorders, OCD, as well as Trichotillomania. I have experience working with evidence-based practices including CBT, Exposure and Response Prevention, Habit Reversal and Stimulus Control, as well as Behavioral Activation.
Anxiety has always been an interest of mine and I love being able to help individuals who struggle with anxiety or related disorders through my practice. Progress and Data are very important and using strategies that are proven to work can make all the difference in treatment. Feel free to checkout the website and contact us for more information.
