My treatment approach combines elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I use Exposure and Response Prevention, the gold standard treatment for OCD . OCD can present in many different ways, and unfortunately many people suffer for years without receiving appropriate diagnosis and treatment.

For anxiety disorders (including OCD , phobias, skin-picking/hair-pulling, + more), I am trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
Living with internal chaos is exhausting and lonely. Constantly feeling overwhelmed and afraid takes away from living well. Maybe you relate to this. Maybe you know what it’s like to feel like your life isn’t yours, to feel controlled by anxiety. Maybe parts of you feel stuck and alone. You want to feel safe and loved, but something is in the way. Or something is missing. Or maybe you don’t know what’s going on, but you know it hurts. It is possible to feel better. You can create a life you want to live.

People who choose to work with me often struggle with various anxieties, fears and incredibly high standards. These issues can often manifest as OCD , anxiety, depressiveness and perfectionism. Many times, these difficulties spread into other areas of life and can impact school, work, family and even just engaging in activities that were once enjoyable. I help people and support systems navigate and learn strategies to manage these issues in order to better function and to be happier overall.

I work with adults and couples on issues related to self-esteem, relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, OCD , PTSD, grief, body image and eating disorders, identity development (including multicultural and LGBTQIA), spirituality, and trauma.
If you've found yourself here, then I imagine you are looking for support to make a change in your life. It can be so challenging when you are shifting through all of these profiles to understand who can help you and how. It is true, there is not one counselor that is a great fit for each person. However, with over 12 years of therapist experience, I have seen that therapy REALLY works! I have also noticed that underneath a lot of anxiety, depression, eating disorders and relationship concerns is trauma. I specialize in working with trauma using EMDR. I help people move from a life of pain to one where they experience thriving.

I specialize in treating OCD and anxiety disorders with the gold standard of treatment, Exposure and Response Prevention.
Your anxiety is relentless and has taken over every aspect of your life. You’ve struggled with it for so long but nothing seems to be able to get it to go away. You try, oh, believe me, you try. Regardless of what you do, how many times you do it, or how long you do it, the anxiety persists. Your mind is a playground for anxiety provoking, distressing and sometimes obsessive thoughts that are uncomfortable and sometimes even makes you question you as a person. Who would have thoughts like this? Why can't I let this go? What makes me so afraid of this? One thing is for certain, it doesn't seem like ANYTHING really works.

Living with anxiety or OCD is miserable! I have worked with anxiety and OCD for almost a decade and enjoy helping kids, teens and adults break free from the limitations and distress that anxiety creates in daily life. Often I see clients who are discouraged that talk therapy or other treatments have not been helpful. Research consistently demonstrates the importance of evidence-based treatment for moderate to severe anxiety and OCD . Exposure and response prevention (ERP) is essential for successful treatment.

I have training from the McLean OCD Institute, a world-renowned clinic for treating OCD .
My area of expertise is helping women struggling with OCD and anxiety. At the start of therapy, my clients feel caught up in a loop of worry, rumination, and anxiety. They try to manage their anxiety with internet searches, replaying events, or trying to understand what their thoughts mean. They have trouble turning off their minds before bed. At times they feel hopeless and wonder how they'll ever get out the anxiety they're dealing with. If this sounds familiar, I can help. My goal is to help clients develop new skills to cope with uncertainty, get unstuck from thought spirals, and feel present and connected in their lives.
