My experience with treating OCD:

I have over 7 years of experience in the mental health space, treating people for OCD, anxiety, PTSD, and depression. I have a strong background in exposure work, commonly known as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. ERP empowers you as you work in sessions so that you can learn how to sit with your fears and not rely on compulsions to address anxiety. It's the most effective form of treatment for OCD.

About Me

I'm constantly learning how to address people's needs when it comes to their mental health challenges, which includes teaching myself new techniques. Part of my ERP experience was learning how to run a session at people's homes where OCD triggers can be identified. I make sure people feel comfortable while challenging them to face their fears and have seen incredible treatment results. My ERP experience has trained me to run teletherapy sessions with the same level of success. I've worked with adults and adolescents whose parents enjoyed my empathetic and passionate approach to treatment. I speak Spanish and have worked with both the Latin and African American communities. It's essential to understand how one's culture can impact their OCD. Let's work together to reach your goals in treatment and life.
