When I started treating OCD, I quickly realized how much this type of work means to me because I had to learn how to be okay with discomfort and uncertainty myself. I’ve been practicing as a licensed therapist since 2016. My graduate work is in mental health counseling, and I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because it’s the gold standard of OCD treatment.

Licensed Therapist, LCHMC

I’m very laid back and I try to encourage my members to steer the wheel. However, I’m very big on psychoeducation—education around your diagnosis will help you truly grasp the concepts at hand and make significant progress. We all have experienced mental health, and it impacts everyone differently. Your journey will never look the same as someone else’s. I love to educate myself and my members. So anytime I find something new that will be helpful, you can be sure that I will share with you. Knowledge is power!

Treating OCD is a challenging task. You’re dealing with intrusive thoughts, compulsions, or intense fears. It’s really hard to admit that this is what you’re experiencing, and that’s OK. Treating OCD is like a ladder. We’ll take each session together and learn how to manage your tolerance. We'll start small and gradually make our way up to more intense feelings. We’re going to work together to be able to build your skills each week in order to give you the best possible outcome and learn to handle whatever you’re struggling with. I’m very passionate and excited that we’re going to go through this journey together a step at a time. Outside of work, I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, cooking, and traveling, especially anywhere with water.

I specialize in OCD, post-traumatic stress disorder, and anxiety. I enjoy holding a safe space for people to share their innermost thoughts on their path to self-discovery and healing. My approach to OCD therapy involves looking at thoughts and behaviors, then focusing on changing behaviors and tolerating distress caused by thoughts. I also specialize in post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety. The aspect of my job I find most gratifying is when people have "lightbulb" moments when they realize they don't have to live in fear, anticipation, or shame forever.
