I grew up in a chaotic, dysfunctional family of five kids, which sparked my interest in psychology. I became fascinated by OCD treatment during grad school a decade ago, because it really does work. I look forward to empowering you with tools that will allow you to become your own therapist.

I look forward to empowering you with tools that will allow you to become your own therapist. In the meantime, we will work as a team to track what's going on, then apply evidence-based treatment to give you some symptom relief.

Stella is so easy to work with. She has great ideas and celebrates successes while making plans going forward


Dec 15, 2022

Stella is the gold standard of OCD therapists. Over the last 6 months I was able to work on ERP and get my life back. We have contingency plans in place if things pop back up and so many successes to build upon. Stella also understands the importance of self care and self compassion when treating OCD and has helped me find ways to be holistically responsive to my OCD. Stella understands the nuances of OCD at such an expert level that together with my hard work, my OCD doesn't have a fighting chance.

Stella is amazing, SO skilled and supportive. I sometimes have to pinch myself that I found someone who knows my brain so well only having known me a short while.

Stella was very supportive and understanding


Feb 22, 2022

Dr. Kim was so supportive and made me feel seen and heard in a way my talk therapists before her have not. After living with OCD for as long as I can remember, she was able to validate that I met diagnostic criteria for OCD, and she walked me through my fears about ERP. I feel hopeful for the first time ever that I can get better!
