"I am an empathic and experienced Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapist. I also teach at Georgetown Hospital and the George Washington University, as well as serve on the OCD Mid-Atlantic Affiliate Board. My treatment aims are as follows: 1) provide direct symptom relief, 2) engage clients in treatment in a way that interests them, 3) appeal to strengths, 4) encourage overall treatment compliance, and 5) explain the clinical process in easy to understand language. Empowerment occurs with the recognition that mental health symptoms have predictable patterns. Symptoms are relieved through changing these patterns. Interactive readings and assignments are encouraged."

"You've got to know the music, and you've got to know the words. The "words" are evidence-based interventions, the application of psychological principles to pragmatic problems, and the pursuit of real change in your life. The music is the wisdom, the insight, the dream-work, the hunches and the flow of the therapeutic relationship. Without the music, the words are cold, clinical, and heartless - not likely to be effective since they don't rest on a solid foundation of deep understanding. But without the words, real-world change is more elusive - you can talk forever without really solving or changing things."
