Is something out of balance in your life? With yourself? Your child? Your effectiveness as a parent? Your relationships? Life circumstances/transitions? If it is, please know that my way of practicing is to non-judgmentally understand what is going on--what area of your life is being negatively impacted. Then we can collaboratively work on establishing goals and a treatment plan. Whether it is Anxiety, OCD , Autism (including very young kids with autism), Depression/Bipolar, Behavior Problems, ADHD, Trauma or Insomnia, there is a way for you or your child to feel more in control, grounded and balanced.

I am a clinical psychology professor at the Michigan School of Psychology and I am a burgeoning specialist in Anxiety and OCD disorders. I have done my clinical post-doctoral training at the Anxiety and OCD center of Ann Arbor, an elite center for treatment if you have OCD or anxiety related disorders. I do a specific type of therapy called Exposure and Response Prevention, which is the gold standard for OCD treatment. Exposure therapy helps you learn how to tolerate feelings of uncertainty and discomfort that anxiety triggers. It helps you learn how to face your fears so you can live a more meaningful life

I specialize working with children, adolescents and young adults with Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Depression.
Regardless of how well we try to prepare, life and mental illness can get in the way of reaching our goals and living the life we want. Regardless of our age, life can be overwhelming and it can be difficult to identify how to make changes in our current situations and face our fears. Together we can work through these challenges and identify strategies to face them. I believe in validating and empowering my clients while adding valuable tools to their toolbox to help them create meaningful and lasting change.

As a therapist, meditation instructor, yoga teacher, and Reiki practitioner, I help individuals overcome anxiety disorders including trauma and OCD .
You have a hard time asking for help. Inside it feels like parts of you are trapped in the past. Everyone else's needs usually come first. Upsetting images replay themselves in your head all of the time. You feel like you can't trust others. You want to move on from those bad experiences, but you feel stuck. You grew up with a parent who struggled with workaholism, addiction and/or mental illness. The coping tools you learned in childhood to keep yourself safe and afloat are starting to rust. It’s time for new skills to add to your self-care toolbox.

I have specialized training working with individuals with eating disorders and with obsessive compulsive disorder ( OCD ).
It is difficult for children and adolescents to find an environment in which they can openly discuss the struggles that they are enduring. I work to facilitate an environment in which individuals can feel safe, supported, and understood, tailoring the dynamics within each session to meet each individuals unique needs. I then utilize an integrative approach - founded in Evidence Based Therapies - to specifically attend to each individual's needs so that they can most successfully overcome the obstacles that they are facing in their lives.

OCD can be incredibly impairing and isolating as, due to the themes of the OCD related thoughts, many are reluctant to tell others about their thoughts.
Do you have intrusive thoughts or worries, or maybe unexplainable urges or images that seem to come out of nowhere, are repetitive, that are stuck in your mind and cause significant distress and anxiety, and sometimes shame because of the themes? Are these obsessive thoughts, images or urges unwanted and continue to exist even though you know they are irrational, causing you to doubt yourself? Do you feel compelled to perform repetitive behaviors or mental rituals in order to decrease the anxiety and distress caused by the obsessions? If so, you may have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or a OCD spectrum disorder.
