About

I am personable, engaged, and excited about your life and your recovery from OCD. I try to create an environment with a good balance of support and challenge. I'm big on response prevention messaging, the internal pep talks we give ourselves that remind us to lean into uncertainty and tolerate our distress. I also use humor. Therapy doesn't have to be boring and serious, and humor can be a great tool to manage and lean into distress and foster internal resilience. I'm going to be your biggest cheerleader in your recovery from obsessive thinking and compulsive behavior.

Seeking out treatment is so brave. With NOCD, you will have tons of support and learn the tools to manage obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors more effectively. With hard work, recovery is possible!
