My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been a licensed therapist for almost 9 years, treating people for OCD as well as other mental health challenges. Having spent time with top clinicians at NOCD, I provide Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to those battling any subtype of OCD. ERP is the gold standard of OCD treatment and is not only backed by evidence but gives you a realistic chance to see progress within a short period of time. I’ve dealt with OCD myself, so I know what it’s like to break away and recover from OCD obsessions and compulsions.


About Me

I started my career working with people fighting addiction, moved into community mental health, and eventually moved into substance abuse & opioid epidemic care. I’ve helped people overcome anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. Having my own experience with OCD helps me understand what members of NOCD are going through. But I always look at the member as the expert on their OCD experiences. That’s why I see our time as a complete collaboration. I’ve always had a way of making people feel at ease, and carry a person-centered approach - you are the author of your story, I’m here for you as a professional guide. Let’s work together as a team so you can overcome your OCD.
