About

You may be coming into sessions feeling anxious from your OCD. You may fear that your intrusive thoughts may reflect the type of person that you are. Nothing could be farther from the truth. You are not your OCD. During sessions, I'll make you feel calm and in-the-moment with you, so you can feel safe sharing your OCD experience while using each session to gain progress. Members describe me as approachable, compassionate, and supportive. But your treatment is not about me. I’m here to work with you towards your goals, so in a way, our time is a collaboration. Together, we can find the happiness in life that you desire as you learn to manage OCD on your own.

You are not your OCD. Your OCD is just one area we're going to focus on as part of your mental health as a whole. I’ll help you to incorporate self-compassion and to let go of any shame, judgment, and guilt.
