Having spent over a decade treating people with various disorders, I find that my experience working with families helps me a great deal when treating OCD. Family relationships can play a crucial role in exacerbating OCD, but that’s just one aspect I look at during treatment. I also have experience working with at-risk youths and at a local community health center. There’s nothing I haven’t seen before, and by using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, I’ve helped a lot of people put their OCD troubles behind them.

I began my career working in school systems with behaviorally-challenged children and then moved into treating adults & families for severe mental health challenges. Treating OCD was always part of my caseload. I've even done face-to-face exposure work with some challenging disorders. My ability to treat any OCD subtype is enhanced by using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). ERP is evidence-based, which means the treatment is supported by both research and positive outcomes.

Licensed Therapist, LMHC

As a therapist, I believe it's hard to sustain our day-to-day lives by ourselves. I tend to ground therapy in helping to create and foster connections and support systems, so you don't feel as isolated at the end of therapy as you did in the beginning. I like to get a good understanding of what your OCD looks like on a day-to-day basis. We'll use ERP to confront and cope with those thoughts constructively, setting realistic goals. Outside of work, I enjoy being with my three cats. They are my happy place at the end of the day. When I'm not with my cats, I'm typically enjoying a theme park. Universal Studios, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, you name it, I try to be there.

I love when members are motivated, engaged, and reach their goals. Thoughts are just thoughts. They are intangible and often changing, but can also be irrational and unhelpful, so let's work on them together. Outside of work, I enjoy singing professionally, spending time with my nieces and nephews, going for hikes, and doing trivia nights with friends.

Licensed Therapist, MSW

My approach to treating OCD is to combine my own experience and perspective with the proven methods of ERP, allowing for the human component of creativity, authenticity, and empathy to guide a collaborative experience. I work with members to customize treatment plans for their unique obsessions, compulsions, and desired outcomes. I prioritize non-judgment and building a healthy therapeutic alliance by earning trust and showing genuine and unconditional positive regard. Outside of work, I'm a city dweller but love being active and outdoors, especially in the woods or on the water. I like going on scenic adventures with my partner and our dogs, hanging out with my nieces and nephews, dancing, taking classes, watching movies, and playing drums.

Licensed Therapist, MSW

I know you're suffering. You might even resist that suffering in body and mind, but what we resist persists. You and I will walk side by side to lessen resistance with kindness, understanding, and support. Therapy is most effective when it zooms out to the big picture and zooms back into the details. Together, we'll determine what you'd like to change. Without challenges, we can't reach our full potential. It reminds me of a quote: "Life is like photography. You need the negatives to develop." I have experience working with OCD, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, dysthymia, eating disorders, geriatrics, and psychosis.

Licensed Therapist, MSW

I became a therapist because I love helping people change an unwanted area of their lives for the better. OCD can show up in so many ways; I will meet you where you're at and help you with your biggest dilemma at the moment. In therapy, there will be hard times, and times you want to give up, but if you keep persevering, things will get better. In addition to OCD, I focus on marriage and family therapy. A partnership is the hardest job you'll have, and it's hard to keep it healthy. I love to help relationships flourish despite challenges.
