I'm a solution-focused and goal-oriented therapist. I can also be pretty irreverent and like to use my sense of humor. I focus both on acceptance of the self, as well as change, when creating an action-oriented plan for the people I work with. A few fun facts about me: I'm a beekeeper, and I really like doing art interventions. I used to be a writer and editor, so I like to harness my creativity.

At first, it might be scary to approach exposures, try things you're afraid of, or talk about certain things. But I will support you through the process. There's no shame in what you're going through.

Alessandra has been wonderful and patient with me. This is hard to work and she makes me feel like I’m not in it alone. I’m so glad I found her as a therapist! Highly recommend.

Alessandra not only makes our child feel comfortable and heard but she also checks in with us as parents. Navigating OCD as a parent is incredibly challenging so we really appreciate her kindness, graciousness and guidance.

Alessandra is AMAZING. She’s helped me do things I hadn’t done in years due to my OCD. I feel so grateful for her.

Alessandra is amazing with our son!

Alessandra has been very helpful in my OCD journey including diagnosis and beginning ERP. She has been very empathetic and supportive in this process, which can be challenging. I was nervous about sharing my intrusive thoughts and feel supported and heard.

Sometimes it can be a good reflection moment to take time to notice patterns in your life. What have been some of your patterns? How did you cope throughout those periods? What is different now than back then? For me, I totally have had ROCD periods. Compulsions included checking, ruminating, and asking for reassurance. Sometimes it's hard not to believe it all. The distress can get so high. If I had worked on on my values and the things I cared about sooner, I would have worked through my ROCD so much sooner. What works for you? What do you value? Doing this work and focusing on my family helps!

Defusion is a way to get distance between our thoughts and behaviors. Here are some ways to do it: -Imagine your OCD thought with a silly voice or sing it outloud -Imagine your OCD thought on a movie screen, playing over and over again and moving yourself to the back of the theater -Imagine your OCD thought as a color, shape, or a character- name it! Sometimes funny names can give you space. :) Hope that helps!
