My experience with treating OCD:

I have 8 years of experience in the field of mental health, primarily as a school social worker with additional experience in a community mental health center. I now specialize in treating OCD, in addition to anxiety and PTSD, while also being a certified clinical trauma professional. Our sessions will be driven by Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, considered the gold standard of OCD treatment.


About Me

Becoming a therapist is a natural fit for me. I grew up embracing the act of being helpful to others and began working in human services at the age of 18. My approach to treatment has developed over the years into a holistic approach that pays attention not just to the person I’m guiding but taking their environment into consideration. Combine that with ERP, an evidence-based therapy proven to treat OCD produces great results. It’s important to put you front and center, and not your OCD. It’s challenging enough for you to deal with your intrusive thoughts, let alone share them. You’ll be met with a comfortable space and sessions that use mindfulness to keep you in the moment, so you can learn how to accept these thoughts and not react to them with such anxiety. I know what it’s like to benefit from treatment, and I can help you overcome your OCD.
