My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been treating people for over 15 years, and now specialize in OCD. My background includes over 7 years of private practice that put me in front of OCD cases, as well as depression, trauma, and PTSD. During our time, I’ll use a therapy called ERP (known as Exposure and Response Prevention) which I’ve been skilled in for quite some time. I researched and learned exposure therapy after my very first OCD patient years ago and I can attest to its incredible effectiveness.


About Me

I’ve dedicated my life to helping adults and children with their mental health challenges. I worked at Savio House non-profit in Colorado, treating children that exhibited destructive behaviors. I’ve handled cases in residential treatment centers, conducted home therapy sessions, and worked with people on probation in the local court system. All of my efforts have prepared me to handle any OCD subtype. It’s vital that we build a rapport through trust and open conversation so I can learn your story and how to apply ERP to your specific needs. You’ll find me to be compassionate, motivated, and a great listener with a pretty laid-back personality. Remember - you are not your OCD thoughts, and together, we’ll develop your confidence to handle anything OCD throws at you.

Today she gave me choices to consider & clarified that there isn’t a right or wrong choice if your thought process leading up to a decision has enlightened or taught you something- it was very calming & insightful as it became clear to me as they day went on after my session

My therapist was amazing, easy going and explained many of my questions. It turned out I do have OCD and it was a relief to find out there was a name for my problem. Thank you
