I’ve been licensed since 2005 to treat mental health challenges, including OCD. I’ve worked in private practice and inpatient psych units, with additional time spent treating cases in local shelters and high schools. As an OCD specialist, I’ll apply what I’ve learned over the past 15 plus years to treat your OCD, using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. ERP has been proven to be the most effective way to treat any OCD subtype.
My time as a therapist has taught me that trauma tends to stay in our bodies. Trauma also arrives from different sources, including the traumatic experience of seeing intrusive thoughts and feeling unwanted urges. Our bodies don’t release the trauma until we give the body permission to do so, but until that time, we experience depression, stress, and anxiety. ERP shows you how to deal with OCD without relying on compulsions and eventually allows you to let go of the mental overload that OCD creates, which means you can live a life that feels more free. Members say that talking to me feels familiar and comfortable. Our sessions will be conducted without judgment, and you’ll feel safe during our time. I know that our time together, working as a team will be positive and productive.
