My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been working as an LCSW and therapist for over 15 years, and now specialize in treating OCD. I have seen people with signs of OCD and trauma in various settings, including family support centers, private practice, and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. I am also a military spouse and have helped many families and children face personal challenges. Using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy allows me to better serve those dealing with OCD. ERP is proven to work and brings terrific results.


About Me

I was inspired to become a therapist while volunteering with a local homeless population. A man within the program said, “just keep smiling,” and those three words resonated with me. As your therapist, I can help you find that smile you’ve lost due to OCD. Intrusive thoughts and the anxiety that follows can make anyone feel disheartened about life, especially when they find themselves isolated and debilitated. I can teach you ERP tools to help you gain your life back from OCD. I love when past members recontact me to tell me how well they’re doing. I’m here to listen to your story, build a good report through trust and compassion, and make you comfortable to share your OCD experiences. Together, we can get you through this.

My vert first video counseling session started to feel like something that can really help me so that is exciting. I have a ton to learn before I can add anything else but I’m eager for it!
