My experience with treating OCD:

When I started treating OCD, I quickly realized how much this type of work means to me because I had to learn how to be okay with discomfort and uncertainty myself. I’ve been practicing as a licensed therapist since 2016. My graduate work is in mental health counseling, and I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because it’s the gold standard of OCD treatment.


About Me

Living with OCD is hard enough without therapy. The anxiety and tension levels that it can cause ruins the way you live. I love the idea of teaching others that it’s not our thoughts or emotions that cause issues, but rather the reactions to those emotions or thoughts. I’m here to work with you to handle your OCD with an approach that’s proven to work. My clients like that I challenge them to a point where they feel confident in their ability to live with uncertainty. I can do the same for you. Let’s work together to learn the nature of your thoughts and fears, so we get you back to living your life again.

This part of this journey, to find out about something you have been dealing with it for so long and so painful, and to find the help and to know that you are not alone with this. No words to describe the relief and appreciation for helping me understand it and to learn how to deal with it in a way that is not as painful emotionally and physically. I will forever be grateful for all the people I have met here on this platform. My therapist for being so understanding and patient and a wonderful listener. I will forever cherish this whole journey. Thank you NOCD and the whole community for everything. You are part of my Life and will always be. ❤️
