My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve come on board as a specialized OCD therapist after being trained by some of the best OCD clinicians in the country. I’ve built a strong private practice since 2014, dealing with many forms of trauma, and saw a lot of overlap between my work and the service that NOCD provides. During sessions, I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because ERP is scientifically proven to get results.


About Me

It’s important to see a specialist for OCD, as general therapists often treat a symptom of OCD rather than the OCD itself. OCD obsessions create an intense amount of anxiety while putting a limit on your happiness, leaving you to feel isolated. The key to recovery is to have you face your fears and not rely on compulsions. For that, you need to trust me as your guide. Nothing you tell me will scare me, as I’ve heard it all. You’ll be safe during our ERP, and eventually, you’ll learn to manage your OCD on your own. Members describe me as empathetic and approachable. I’ll encourage you to take your time so you can take steps towards recovery at a pace that makes you feel comfortable. When you’re ready, I’m here to listen, and together, we’ll work session by session to get you where you want to be in life.
