A specific type of CBT, know as Exposure/Response-Prevention, is the treatment of choice for OCD .
Although by orientation I'm a cognitive-behavioral therapist--that is, I focus on how thoughts and actions affect how we feel and respond to situations--I don't follow a cookbook approach to treatment. Each individual brings a unique set of problems to therapy, and I start with a thorough evaluation to assess your needs and develop a collaborative treatment plan that is personal yet based on current research. This type of therapy is focused more on the present than the past and on developing coping skills to help you deal with the problems that are currently troubling you.

On the outside, it looks like you have everything together. But you secretly struggle with intrusive thoughts and time-consuming rituals. Or maybe you can't stop thinking about food and your body. Whether you are feeling trapped by obsessive -compulsive disorder or an eating disorder, I can help.

With an ally, you would feel confident taking back your life by working to stop the cycle of anxiety that is Obsessive -Compulsive Disorder.
As someone that struggles with unwanted or intrusive thoughts, feelings, sensations, or urges, you often find yourself spinning in circles. You are constantly hounded by doubt and spend most of your time just trying to keep your head above water. You know that you are being illogical, but just can't seem to shake the feeling that something bad is going to happen. It can be scary to reach out for help. You may worry that you will be judged if you tell anyone about the content of your thoughts, so you suffer in silence. So often it seems that you have to carry this burden alone.

 Additionally, I have experience working with trauma, OCD , and attachment related symptoms and enjoy use expressive therapies, including art and sand tray therapy.
I feel strongly in the client driving the therapy process. Each client is the best expert on themselves. We all have innate strengths, even those that present as barriers at times. Learning to understand and utilize these strengths can be life changing. I will partner with you to find a methodology that you connect with best. I believe the trigger or concerning behavior/experience that brings a person, a couple or a family to therapy, is a part of the puzzle, not the whole problem. We will work together to identify patterns that no longer serve and embolden the inherent strengths within the person or their relationships.

A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
