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.Read more
As a therapist, I'm very direct, but also open, empathetic and patient. I look forward to working together with you to ease your struggles and make your life a lot better. In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies and spending time with my son, who's eight. I love to get outdoors and go for hikes. I think exercise is really important for reducing stress and supporting mental health.Read more
As a therapist, I aim to be authentic and present for the people I'm working with. I'll listen to your story with empathy, understanding, validation, and consistency, working to create a safe space. When I'm not doing therapy, I love to bake. During the pandemic, I've become quite experienced.Read more
As a therapist, I'm very humanistic. I believe your treatment should be guided by you. I encourage you to have compassion for yourself as you learn to recognize that you are not your thoughts. When I'm not doing therapy, I enjoy acrylic painting. I love doing 'dirty pours,' where you pour a bunch of paints together on a canvas, and a piece begins to take the shape of its very own unique, individual self.Read more
As a therapist, I emphasize collaboration and our relationship. In all therapy, the relationship between therapist and member is fundamental, but I think it's even more important in ERP, because we talk about stuff that's really hard, sit in the shame that might come up, and navigate that together. I like to add a touch of humor when it's appropriate—I think striking the right balance between light and difficult is important. Outside of work, I love to perform in a local theater. Musicals are my thing.Read more
My approach to treating OCD is simple yet effective. First, I want to get to know you and be able to connect with you. I consider it an honor and a privilege to hear your story. Second, I will provide high-quality ERP that will serve as a long-term solution to the difficulties you're facing. When I’m not working, I enjoy going to the beach. Living in Florida gives me many opportunities to snorkel, swim, and relax by the water. On most weekends, you will find me there.Read more
