My experience with treating OCD:

I have 9 years of experience as a licensed therapist, helping people overcome OCD, substance abuse, trauma, and much more. I specialize in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat any OCD subtype that you’re facing. ERP is well-researched and considered the gold standard of OCD treatment. You’ll be met with a safe environment that allows you to open up and share your intrusive thoughts, feelings, and urges in confidence.


About Me

Everyone has their own story to tell. I have my own experience working with a therapist with great success. It’s my role as your therapist to listen and understand your story, so I can create a plan specific to your needs. Effective therapy begins with building rapport and getting you focused on the present, not the past. It’s all about moving you forward on your road to recovery. Speaking up about your OCD can be challenging, so we can go at a pace that’s comfortable for you. I also know this may not be the first time that you’ve worked with a therapist. Getting your feedback on how seasons are going is key to your success, and at the same time, I’ll provide you with frequent check-ins to see how you’re progressing. Together, we can reach your goal of finding great success in treatment.
