In my therapy practice, I work collaboratively with children, adolescents, adults, and families to identify and counter unhelpful thinking and behavioral patterns and ultimately help them to live happier, more successful lives. Using a scientifically supported approach, the therapy work frequently includes discussions of brain functioning and why we act as we do, learning about and practicing concrete strategies to improve day-to-day functioning, and identifying and changing problematic habits (e.g., with thought patterns, exercise, sleep, screens, social interactions, etc).

Each individual is unique, and my approach to treating OCD is person-centered, guided by your specific needs. OCD can make someone feel stuck, like they're being held down by their disorder. I decided to specialize in OCD because no one should feel stuck or defined by their condition. At NOCD, my team and I specialize in providing evidence-based treatment for people with OCD. Our deep understanding of its nuances enables us to properly diagnose and treat it. We have received intensive training in Exposure Response and Prevention Therapy (ERP)—the gold standard treatment for OCD.

I provide a warm and nurturing environment where clients feel safe to explore their deepest inner selves. Whether addressing adult or parent-child issues, I emphasize the importance of working on one's own emotional and nervous systems as a first step to creating change. My intention is to help people "heal", not just "deal". I use talk therapy and experiential techniques such as Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, and mindfulness practices. I have found that working with deep emotions embedded in the "felt sense" of one's experience is a powerful tool leading to transformation.

I do not have a specific "ideal" client, but I most enjoy working with, and have the most experience with, women from ages 18 to 65. Their issues could be depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, and more(see list below). They are looking for someone who will listen with full attention, interest and compassion. They want someone who is very supportive, who makes them feel very safe and accepted, just as they are. They are looking for a real human being they can relate to. Someone who will remember what is going on with them, who truly cares and cheers them on, who makes them laugh and gives them hope.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor for many years, I am continually inspired by the transformative moment that happens in the counseling process. There is a sacredness in being present to another as a guide on this journey we call life. Whether it is exploring inner resources for healing and growth or the possibilities for deep and lasting change, it is an honor to work with people that are desiring a better way to be themselves in the world. My own journey has taught me that being truly present and engaged allows space for the unknown to be revealed, acknowledged, and eventually integrated into the service of the whole self.

Our minds can make us better or they can create tremendous problems. Can you use your mind to reduce your suffering, rather than increase it? Or to increase meaning and depth in your life? Sometimes a sympathetic family member or wise friend can help a great deal; other times a knowledgeable, compassionate professional is a better choice. Perhaps your internal life feels out of control, or you're feeling stuck, repeating ineffective patterns of relating to yourself and others. I work with people to help them understand themselves and their situation, manage stress better, and make positive changes happen.

Anxiety can feel overwhelming. Trying to manage worry, panic attacks, or obsessive compulsive disorder can be challenging. You may find that the harder you try, the more you fight, the worse it gets. Well meaning friends and family members may try to help by offering advice of their own: Don’t worry about it. Think about something else. Just try to relax. Unfortunately these suggestions are rarely helpful. The truth is, anxiety can be managed. The solutions, however, are often counterintuitive.
