My experience with treating OCD:

I have over 25 years of experience helping people overcome their challenges. I now specialize as an OCD therapist, handling any OCD subtype using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. I've also worked with college students at Purdue University that faced stress and anxiety disorders, kids in foster care under severe trauma, and even worked outpatient treating many types of cases, including Alzheimer's patients. ERP is evidence-based and proven to work. I know it can work for you, too.


About Me

When my son was diagnosed with OCD in the 2nd grade, it scared me. Fortunately, I found a therapist for him that used ERP therapy. Now, my son is living a healthy life with joy and great promise. Since then, I have wanted to specialize in ERP treatment. I know you may be feeling scared or hesitant, especially since you will have to share your intrusive thoughts with me. But I assure you that you will only be met with empathy, kindness, and a safe, non-judgemental space to work in. I have the first-hand experience and the professional experience to get you through your current situations. My goal for you is to look back at what you did in treatment and realize how far you've come. You can have your life back, and I'm here to help you get it.
