My experience with treating OCD:

I’ve been practicing as a licensed therapist since 2005. My main area of focus is OCD with specialized training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. I use ERP to treat people with all types of OCD themes, including aggressive, taboo, and a range of other unique types.


About Me

Are you feeling stuck and frustrated? Instead of having joy, you may often feel afraid, overwhelmed, stressed, or anxious by unwanted thoughts. I can help you learn to confront your fears and anxiety using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is critical in a non-judgmental and safe setting. Let’s work together so you can achieve your goals and reach your full potential.

Great session, I gained a lot of clarity about my ocd today. I'm beyond grateful for this experience.

Thelma is the best, she understands me and is able to make sense of my jumbled responses and it is so helpful to have someone who just gets it and can laugh with me, bit still take me seriously and be so compassionate.

Thelma and I have a good rapport. She was easy to talk to. She helped me identify goals. She seemed to grasp what's going on with me and see my motivations and difficulties.

Thelma is great at picking out what it is on which we need to focus. She was also great at explaining how ERP works.
