I have 25+ years of experience in treating anxiety disorders (such as OCD , panic disorder, and phobias), depression, and difficulties related to psychological trauma. For the past 13 years, I have also been treating eating disorders and trichotillomania. I work primarily from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. This involves my client and me working as a collaborative team to determine what skills it would be useful for my client to learn and practice. This process tends to reduce distress and facilitates achieving a greater sense satisfaction, happiness, and meaning in life.

Through evidenced-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) -- the "gold standard" of anxiety treatment - I help people overcome panic, worry, phobias, and OCD .
*I'm not accepting new clients at this time* Are stress and anxiety are getting in the way of the life you want to lead? Do you feel tense, overwhelmed, and stuck in your head much of the time? Maybe you struggle with physical symptoms like headaches, insomnia, and digestive problems. But you don't have to live like this forever! The right treatment can help you move beyond the fear and worry that is holding you back. In therapy, I can help you understand how anxiety hijacks your brain and body and how you can stop it from getting the upper hand.

I believe that exposure response prevention (ERP) is the gold standard treatment for OCD and anxiety disorders.
Are you struggling with obsessions, compulsions, anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, body image issues, or trauma? Do you experience excessive guilt? Do you struggle with thoughts that are difficult to discuss or are taboo? Do you struggle to stick up for yourself or set boundaries with others? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we may be a great therapist-client match. I am passionate about working with OCD , anxiety disorders, and mood disorders and have experience and training in these areas.

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.

Among the techniques I frequently use are: Exposure and Response Prevention for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder ( OCD ), Behavioral Activation, the cognitive therapies of Ellis and Beck, and finally, Cognitive Processing.
In my practice, I combine a scientific approach to therapy in the context of compassion and empathy for my clients. I try to express the Rogerian triad: empathy, congruence, and unconditional, positive regard of my client. Using this foundation, I customize the treatment to the specific needs of the client which are unique. My techniques are drawn from a variety of theoretical positions, primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) supplemented by insights from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy.

I have specialized training in treatment for OCD and phobias.
*I CURRENTLY HAVE LIMITED OPENINGS* Feelings of anxiety, depression, and grief are totally normal responses in these difficult times. My goal as a therapist is to guide clients through whatever is keeping them from living their happiest lives — whether the issue is more recent/due to COVID-19, or a deeper issue that has been draining someone’s energy for years (or a lifetime). I operate from a collaborative, strengths-based perspective to help clients understand their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I help clients develop strategies to mitigate anxiety, depression, and trauma/PTSD symptoms that interfere with their well-being.

Are you or a loved one anxious and unable to find the words to explain? That anxiety may cause us to struggle with our communication, lash out in anger, act on impulses, get lost in our emotions, avoid tasks, distract us from success, and disconnect us from support systems. This is especially prevalent in the adolescent and young adult population among other struggles such as depression, ADHD, life transitions, chronic illness, OCD , and lack of self esteem. As a passionate therapist working with this population, I aim to help my clients win these battles so they can begin creating a life story that is meaningful & limitless.
