About

As a therapist, I prioritize the psychoeducation portion of OCD treatment. It's really important to me that you understand OCD as a disorder, what's going to exacerbate your symptoms, and what's going to help you alleviate your symptoms. I never judge—it's not my job to have any personal opinions about anything that you're sharing. We are not our thoughts. Outside of work, I love to cook, travel, be around friends and family, and play with my adopted retired racing greyhound.

I like helping people understand what OCD is and watching them get their lives back. I will meet you wherever you are and gear you up for ERP. As long as you're willing to work, I'm ready to work along with you.

Was a great session, I’m already learning a lot about OCD that I never knew in the 25 years I’ve had it!

I am incredibly grateful for Kara's support, advice and guidance. I felt comfortable discussing distressing topics and addressing issues I've never touched before. I felt the therapeutic relationship was positive and empowering and I'm going forward with a confidence and peace I thought I'd never achieve. Thank you so much.
