As a Licensed Psychological Practitioner, I use telehealth and in person therapy formats to treat adults. I have extensive experience treating individuals with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, PTSD, body-focused repetitive behaviors (such as trichotillomania), hoarding, and other anxiety-related disorders. I employ a values-based approach that often includes humor, music, and connecting with community and people. Exposure/Ritual Prevention therapy in particular will include experiencing aversive and unpleasant thoughts and feelings and learning skills to tolerate them to improve overall quality of life.

I use CBT, ACT, ERP, BA, and DBT Skills to treat a variety of disorders including OCD, skin picking, hair pulling, hoarding, phobias, BDD, GAD, social anxiety, panic, depression, eating disorders, and others.
There are so many things outside of our control that are inevitably difficult to cope with. Even with the unforeseen situations and stressors that life throws our way, the one thing we do have control over is the way we respond to them. However, it is difficult to know how to respond when we are experiencing fear, anxiety, and other heightened emotions. I want to help people strengthen their coping capabilities in an environment that is open, non-judgmental, and collaborative. My goal is to provide support to individuals, couples, and families tackling every day and life stressors with more confidence, hope, self-empowerment.

Currently, I offer telehealth therapy only. My style is both conversational and relational. I offer an authentic presence within a collaborative, lively relationship in which self-discovery can be non-threatening and perhaps, even fun. I am committed to sharing everything I know which I believe will help heal the difficulties in one's life. I am inspired each day by the courage clients have each moment they show up for therapy. I became a therapist because, to me, the value in life comes when you return to your value within.

Not accepting new clients
In today’s world, we witness a plethora of stressors, which affect our day to day life’s mental health wellbeing. With the increased stress, and exhaustion in routine life, meeting the demands of family, work, and personal goals, especially during the pandemic period, it gets difficult to cope. The restrictions of social distancing has further isolated individuals who are seeking support to manage their overwhelming psycho emotional state. This extent of exertion leads to mental health issues e.g., depression, anxiety. These individuals can be a wife, a mother, a student, a teacher, a doctor, or a mental health professional.

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.
