My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been providing therapy since 2018 and now I work as a licensed therapist that specializes in treating OCD. My experience comes from providing domestic violence counseling, community mental health support, and working within partial hospitalization programs (PHP) & intensive outpatient facilities (IOP). After receiving training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy from top clinicians at NOCD, I can show you how to manage your OCD regardless of subtype.


About Me

An experience with therapy at an early age made a great impression on me, so much so that it inspired me to pursue a career as a therapist. I’m excited to offer ERP therapy to you, a dynamic and action-oriented approach to treating OCD. We will engage in exposure exercises that put you in front of your fears, so you can learn how to experience them with more acceptance. You’ll learn to not rely on compulsions with tools you can use for the rest of your life. You’ll find me to be non-judgemental, collaborative, and a great listener. I’m focused on your needs, so I can structure sessions that are personalized based on your subtypes. I see myself as your partner with the knowledge to guide you every time we meet. Let’s work together, and make your recovery happen.

Though difficult to discuss these thoughts I’ve been keeping in it felt good to be seen and heard and Meghan was really understanding and validating. I’m ready to start healing.
