As a therapist, I'm very educational. I like to explain what we're doing and why. I think it's really important for people in OCD therapy to understand what's going on and why they're doing something that is seemingly so paradoxical. I also like to empower members I work with to collaborate in offering suggestions. Outside of work, I like gardening and playing banjo in a group with my fiancé, who plays fiddle.

People can see a really drastic improvement by facing their fears. You're not arguing with your thoughts and going back and forth; you're facing them head-on and learning that you can handle things you didn't think you could. It's very empowering.
