While I approach therapy from a Cognitive Behavioral perspective, focusing on challenging thoughts and changing behaviors, I do so with the primary focus on respect for my patients and their individual issues. I want you to feel supported in session but also know that you will be challenged and tasked with completing goals in between sessions. I greatly enjoy helping my patients reach their own goals to be successful in their life, especially in the areas of social relationships, academics, employment, and self-care.
I am a licensed MFT, and ABD status in my clinical psychology PhD program. I am trained in PCIT, CBT, and completed my year-long doctoral internship with Rogers Memorial Hospital in Wisconsin specializing in treatment of OCD via ERP in residential, inpatient, and outpatient settings. I also received specialized OCD and ERP training through NOCD.
The mix of academics and professional training, along with personal lived experience with mental health has allowed me to better understand patients and treat them with an integrative therapy approach that is evidence-based and allows for successful outcomes.
