I became a therapist because of my own mental-health journey. I know what it's like to address what's going on inside your head, and successfully come out the other side. In OCD therapy, we'll look at your thought processes to address what's going on and build coping skills to manage the anxiety. Outside of work, I have six kids, a big blended family. I'm big into reading. I read just about anything. Usually, I'm reading about four books at once.

I understand that addressing how you think and feel can be scary. Really looking at you is overwhelming sometimes. But we'll go into this together and take it at the speed that is most comfortable for you.

Arlene was so sweet to me and was great with me in a vulnerable state :)

Arlene is always really positive and helpful- she has helped me get to a position where I am far more able to deal with this miserable condition!

Arleen was trying to build a relationship with my daughter and got my daughter talking about her interests and even getting in front of the camera and then Arleen went and started talking about why it was hard and my daughter retreated right back into her shell. If she would have continued to just get my daughter talking about her interests for the rest of the session today, she might have wanted to come back, but instead she totally lost her. My daughter could have talked about books or art for hours. It just seemed really short-sighted and rushed unnecessarily. It takes time for even adults to build trust with a therapist. I doubt my daughter will want to try therapy again.

My second appointment. Got to know Arlene better. Practice ERP in my present environment and some tasks to complete before my next appointment. I was really encouraged that she has veterans in her family and relatives. Also that she has clients in Wyoming so that she knows something about living here.

I feel like I make progress every week. Arlene is non-judgemental, kind and knowledgeable.

Great detail and perspective. Always feel better after a session.

Really useful session, no reassurance however much I hinted for it! Useful, practical steps to take instead and delivered with humour 😂
