Licensed Therapist, MA

I started as a therapist over 14 years ago, working in different mental health environments. Many people with OCD that weren't being treated for it crossed my path and weren't getting better. I decided that I wanted to help people with OCD, so I became an OCD therapist, and eventually, a clinical supervisor. I treated people using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and saw people get better day in and day out. I continue to use ERP because nothing is more effective in treating OCD.

Licensed Therapist, LCPC

I'm an OCD specialized therapist, and I began my career as a licensed clinical professional counselor. I have received training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy under the guidance of Dr. Patrick McGranth, the head of clinical services at NOCD. Working with a research-based treatment like ERP is rewarding because it allows me to see people break free from the hold that OCD has over them.

As a therapist treating people with OCD, I want people to understand and reduce their anxiety caused by intrusive thoughts. I’ll help you get familiar with your anxiety, and to teach you how to work through it. I’ve worked as a health provider for over 20 years and use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, because it helps address your physical, mental, and emotional challenges when dealing with OCD.

I've been a licensed OCD therapist since 2009 and have an M.A. in Clinical Counseling from The Chicago School Of Professional Psychology. I have personally dealt with anxiety disorders myself, and use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat OCD. I find working with people that have OCD rewarding when I see the changes they make after applying ERP tools into their lives.

My early training in how to treat OCD was led by Dr. Patrick McGrath himself. I’m a firm believer in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because I’ve seen how well it works. You'll be asked to face your fears during our ERP sessions, and will need someone qualified like myself to help you overcome those fears. Participate in ERP therapy with me, learn the tools that will help you manage your OCD, and you’ll soon be on the road to getting the results you want.

Licensed Therapist, LCPC

As a therapist that specializes in OCD, I learned the value of structured therapy with concrete goals to reach during treatment. Before joining NOCD, my work in a community mental health clinic put me in front of diverse people and mental health issues. I treated anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia and even became a team leader at the clinic. I enjoy using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat people with OCD because ERP allows me to set those goals customized for your life, based on what you need.

OCD may have done a number on your self-esteem and self-worth. One of the best things I can do as a therapist is to help you tap into your strengths. You may be dealing with intrusive thoughts, but you have the internal strength to recover. You can approach things in a different way and have a better tomorrow. Outside of work, I'm a geek. I help run a zombie live-action role-playing game in the woods of Wisconsin. It's part of a national game. It's a lot of spooky fun and really reduces stress.

I have a mixed background of working in a hospital outpatient environment as well as working at a local school, where I also treated cases of ADHD, trauma, anxiety, and depression. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy when treating OCD because it’s a goal-oriented approach that’s proven to treat all OCD subtypes.

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

First and foremost, I approach OCD treatment from a place of compassion. OCD causes a lot of suffering, often for years or even decades, before people seek out treatment. I like to say that my members are the drivers of their treatment and I'm the navigation system—you define where you would like to go, and I'll support you in figuring out how to get there, utilizing the safest and most effective route. Some fun facts about me: I am madly in love with my dog, Maddie. Outside of work, I am often taking her on long walks around the neighborhood, seeing live stand-up comedy, or eating from local Thai, Chinese, and sushi restaurants in Chicago.
