My experience with treating OCD:

As a licensed therapist for over 3 years, I now specialize in helping people overcome OCD. My experience has been mostly gained working within intensive outpatient facilities and partial hospitalization programs designed for people battling mental health issues. My go-to therapy for treating OCD is called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). ERP is a solution-based approach focused on showing you how to accept your intrusive thoughts rather than rely on compulsion to address your anxiety.


About Me

Over the years, I’ve developed a strength-based approach to treatment. I believe in the empowerment of others and praising them when goals are accomplished. It's vital for me to help people find their own strengths, so they can gain confidence in using the tools that I teach them. Overcoming OCD certainly requires confidence because I’ll be showing you how to manage OCD on your own using ERP. But confidence in yourself won’t begin until you have trust in my ability to guide you. With compassion and kindness, I'll give you space to find your ground and get comfortable so you can openly share your thoughts and feelings safely. As we build that good rapport, you’ll see how effective ERP can be and put your trust in its ability to help you overcome OCD.
