I specialize in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder, health anxiety, and other anxiety disorders. I help my clients decrease and manage emotional and physical distress, and increase well-being. My clients range in age from 17 through older adulthood. I work collaboratively and actively with my clients to achieve their short and long term goals. My approach is always compassionate, respectful, and optimistic. My goals are to reduce symptoms and help my clients to make positive long-term changes. While I sometimes provide short-term focused CBT, most of my clients are seeking more comprehensive treatment.

I use the most effective treatments for OCD: Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and family coaching as needed. I also integrate hypnosis, relaxation, mindfulness, and stress management techniques when appropriate for anxiety.

Having a doctorate in public health in addition to my MSW, I'm keenly interested in research on the effectiveness of therapeutic approaches. Consequently, I stay informed about the latest research findings in mental health, and incorporate evidence-based approaches into my practice.
