My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been a therapist for several years, having attended the Ontario College of Social Workers, and now I specialize in treating OCD. Having gained experience in the mental health space working for a family health clinic, a non-profit community center in the city of Windsor, and a virtual health clinic, I’ve picked up valuable skills that I can bring into our sessions. During our time, I’ll be using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, a widely proven method to treat OCD.

About Me

Everyone has unique battles to fight. Having OCD means battling intrusive thoughts, and requires someone to guide you so that you can learn how to manage those thoughts without having anxiety. It’s important to know how to cope with your thoughts and emotions, especially when they’re tied to OCD. The key to overcoming OCD is ERP, which quickly exposes you to your fears leading to great benefits that you can see and feel. I’ve experienced progress from therapy, so I understand what it’s like to go from being uncomfortable to reaching my goals. I like to challenge members during sessions, but in a way that makes them feel safe and respected. I’m also fluent in Spanish, and have great experience helping families overcome their struggles.
