My experience with treating OCD:

As a practicing therapist since 2014, I know how therapists misdiagnose OCD in their patients. General therapists aren’t as well versed in OCD as a specialized therapist and often treat a symptom of OCD rather than the OCD itself. I now specialize in OCD, and I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because of its effectiveness in treating OCD. ERP is designed to work with any OCD subtype and is scientifically proven to get results.


About Me

OCD obsessions create an intense amount of anxiety while putting a limit on your happiness. It can leave you isolated and scared, as the intrusive thoughts play on your fears. 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.
