My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been a practicing licensed therapist for over 40 years and worked in E.R. crisis intervention, treated seniors and adolescents, and have worked with OCD patients since 2014. I’ve also had family members with OCD who were misdiagnosed. I feel like OCD is misunderstood and makes people isolated. Education and proper treatment with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy is the key to bringing people back to the lives they once knew.


About Me

You’re taking a huge step sitting with me in treatment, and I respect and applaud you for doing so. Even though OCD stigmatized, I want to help you realize that you have nothing to be ashamed of, and that you're among a lot of people that suffer from this issue. Getting rid of intrusive thoughts is not easy. They appear faster and more intense and play into a sufferer's biggest fears. I'm here to address those fears and thoughts. People say I have a calming presence, and they learn quickly that they can trust me. I want you to know that that hope is not lost, and together, we will work to teach you how to manage your OCD with great confidence.
