As a therapist, I take a coaching approach. You and I are a team, aligned against the OCD bully. I do a lot of acceptance and commitment therapy, which is about being aligned with your values, and identifying things that are important to you as the motivators for treatment. Outside of work, I love outdoor activities. I have two daughters, a preteen and a teen. What's meaningful to me is spending time with my kids and my dogs, being in the present moment, and enjoying the little things in life.

You don't have to walk in feeling strong, brave, courageous, and able to do OCD therapy. Some people don't start because they believe they have to be in that spot of bravery. You don't—you just have to be willing.
