My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been a therapist for 5 years as an LMHC, and after receiving training from top clinicians at NOCD, I now specialize in treating OCD. My background also includes helping people overcome their anxiety, depression, trauma, and other disorders. I stand by treatment methods that are well-researched such as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. I cannot wait for you to see how incredibly effective ERP is so I can show you how to manage your OCD.


About Me

My approach to treatment is integrated. I look at the whole person to determine how best to treat your OCD. I’ve worked in community mental health centers and private practice settings. However, virtual sessions allow for a more comfortable and convenient experience as it allows you to choose the space you want to work in. This comes in handy when you’re doing exposure work, where you can truly face your fears within the safety of your home. I’ve seen and heard so many experiences of troubling mental health challenges. I’m a great listener and believe that empathy leads to great progress. I assure you that you’ll be met with a completely non-judgemental session when you work with me.
