As a social worker, I firmly hold the belief that meeting my clients were they're at and supporting their decisions is vital to our work together. It's for this reason that my ideal client is someone who has some understanding of their mental health and is ready and willing to make changes. My ideal client is some who might be struggling with depression, anxiety, OCD, trauma, mood/personality disorders, and are looking to improve their mental health by using the natural power of nutrition and lifestyle changes.

She has invested in maintaining competency to treat the following issues: OCD, BDD, Tics, Phobias, Anxiety Disorders, Illness Anxiety, and PTSD with flashbacks.
You are making one of the best investments you will ever make in yourself. Many people with anxiety attempt to control their thoughts, avoid, or perform behaviors to prevent unease or a negative outcome, only for worry to return. This feels intuitive, but actually prolongs distress long-term by reinforcing the ideas of intolerance and that there is something to fear. It's human nature to experience some discomfort. With Exposure Therapy, you can gradually minimize fears with support and thrive *in spite of* discomforts the brain, body, & life send your way. Let's replace the confinements of certainty with the freedom of uncertainty.

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 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.

I treat all sorts of mental disorders including depression, anxiety, panic, OCD, PTSD, Adult Aspergers Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder, Substance abuse, relationship and family issues.
Mental health is part of your physical health. You cannot have one without the other. No one is exempt from facing mental health struggles at one time or another in their life. It is not uncommon during times of mental health struggles, either it be an isolated incident of panic, short-term and long-term anxiety, tragedy, situational depression, or circumstances that were out of your control that caused you to have a "new normal." Therapy will alleviate these stressors through a process of personal insight, change, and opening your eyes to a new way of seeing your life and how you react to it.

I provide a specialty therapy for people with a high degree of self-control (perfectionists, introverts, worriers, and the notably stubborn). Can you have too much of a good thing? It turns out possessing too much self-control impairs our ability to relax, adapt to change, and connect to others. Humans have a fundamental need for fun and belonging, without it, we’re naturally depressed and anxious.
