If you find yourself constantly caught up in a cycle of overthinking & overachieving, seeking balance and centeredness in your life, I am here to help. Through therapy, we will explore strategies to calm the racing thoughts, ease the pressure of constant doing, and rediscover a sense of harmony within yourself. While we may not possess the ability to directly control our thoughts & feelings, we do hold the power to consciously choose our responses to these internal experiences. Together, we can navigate the challenges you face, while embracing laughter, acceptance, and an authentic connection that promotes growth & well-being.
I specialize in treating OCD, anxiety, & perfectionism. I enjoy helping young adults navigate professional, social, & romantic challenges. Therapy should be tailored, not one-size-fits-all. That's why I adopt an integrative approach, drawing from the rich foundations of acceptance & commitment and cognitive-behavioral therapies for a comprehensive approach.
Congratulations on starting this exciting journey of self-discovery! Whether you're well-versed in therapy or just starting out, my aim is to enhance your life & be a valuable support. I bring a compassionate curiosity, a sense of humor, & casual/conversational style. I'd love to hear from you and offer a complimentary consultation to answer questions.

When treating OCD, I typically begin with psychoeducation about OCD, the brain, and ERP treatment. I may recommend useful readings and podcasts. Next we would create a hierarchy (list of feared situations in order of level of distress), discuss response prevention and cognitive defusion strategies, and plan which exposure we will focus on that week. Exposures may be done in and/or out of session.
