You are worthy. I believe you are created on purpose and with a purpose. All too often, the environment and people around us highlight all that is wrong with us and/or our situation. Sometimes, that can lead to feeling as if we are not enough or broken. These feelings and experiences can contribute to mental health struggles. I get it because I have been there…life is straight up hard sometimes. However, there is hope! There is a world that exists in which we as individuals can recognize and accept our flaws, while acknowledging we are still awesome in spite of these flaws.

The anxiety disorders that I treat include OCD, separation anxiety, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, and phobias, such as emetophobia.
I enjoy working with children through adults who are dealing with moderate to severe anxiety that is interfering with their day to day lives. My clients want greater understanding of their particular anxiety disorder, practical, evidence-based help, and a compassionate “coach” to guide them in the process.

I enjoy building therapeutic relationships and promoting positive changes in people's lives. My clients often struggle with depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, relationship issues, sleep problems, self esteem and confidence. I am especially interested in working with gay identified men and people struggling with phobias or OCD, but love working with all sorts of folks and issues. Working collaboratively with clients, I try to help them find alternative ways of dealing with life's challenges. I believe therapy helps people become more authentic and well balanced version of themselves and not be controlled by anxiety or depression.

I specialize in anxiety and OCD, neurodivergence (specifically ADHD) and various relationship dynamics (ENM, kink, domestic violence, those recovering from abusive relationships).
Trauma, anxiety, and ADHD that are unaddressed will have you feeling shame and guilt that never seems to go away. Feeling exhausted and disconnected from the people around you. Difficulty trusting others. Living in fear. Challenges with starting things and seeing them through to the end. Procrastinating and feeling "stuck". A critical voice in your head that never seems to chill out... To live this way can feel incredibly draining and debilitating. It doesn't have to be this way. There is hope and healing on the other side.

Finding the optimal therapeutic fit is a bit like going on a blind date... you hope for the best and prepare for the worst. People who think I'm a fit are often high-achieving individuals with an acute awareness of the issue, feel they have tried "everything" to fix it, and are giving therapy “one last chance.” I successfully get clients “unstuck” by challenging them in unconventional, collaborative ways. I intentionally push people 20% past where they are comfortable (because that’s where the growth happens!) and practice pivoting to ensure you have the skills to navigate, manage, and address the discomfort long-term.

So often in life we think the key to finding happiness exists in something outside of ourselves. We change jobs, partners, friends and cities only to find ourselves exactly as we were, living with the same problems and patterns, and ultimately in the same self-imposed prisons. As children, we intuitively develop adaptive solutions to maladaptive situations that enable us to protect our hearts and minds. Unbeknownst to our consciousness, these self-deceptions no longer protect us, but in fact compromise our capacity for growth.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Therapists

How long does OCD treatment take?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often treated on a weekly or twice-weekly schedule, depending on symptom severity and the client’s preferences. Some clients may start to see a noticeable improvement in symptoms in as little as six weeks, but it’s also possible, especially in more severe cases, for treatment to take several months to a year before significant progress is made.

What happens if OCD is not treated?

Some people with OCD, especially those with mild symptoms, may find that they are able to adapt reasonably well to life with the condition, even if their symptoms never resolve completely. However, many people, particularly those whose symptoms are severe at the outset, find that their obsessions and compulsions grow more intrusive with time, making it harder to maintain relationships, hold down a job, or navigate the world successfully.

Are there medications for OCD?

Medication can be used to treat OCD. The class of drugs most often prescribed are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, which include fluvoxamine (under the brand name Luvox), fluoxetine (Prozac), and sertraline (Zoloft), among others. In cases of treatment-resistant OCD, other classes of medication, such as tricyclic antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics, may be prescribed. Medication is frequently used in conjunction with therapy.

Can OCD come back after treatment?

Yes. Major life transitions, periods of stress, or other factors can cause symptoms to return or, if they were never fully eradicated, to ramp back up in intensity. For some, these relapses are brief and do not require additional treatment; identifying specific triggers and practicing the skills learned in therapy can help speed their course. For others, returning to therapy for a brief period can help address the underlying stress and strengthen coping mechanisms.
