Licensed Therapist, Psychologist

I’ve been treating people with OCD since 2016, and now I work as an OCD specialist. It’s always been my passion to treat people with OCD, partly because I have my own experiences with intrusive thoughts. I participated in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, so I know how well ERP can work for someone with OCD. ERP is incredibly effective and works for all OCD subtypes.

Licensed Therapist, LCSW

As a therapist, I always try to lead with empathy and support. I truly believe you're the expert on your own life, so I want to put you in the driver's seat. I always make sure we're learning skills in session, so you have kind of a toolbox to use until we meet again. When I'm not doing therapy, I love to cook. I'm always in the kitchen, coming up with new vegetarian recipes or desserts. I'm always down to bake a pie or experiment with food. That's how I do self-care.
