During my time as a clinical counselor, I often treated people that described OCD symptoms. Now, I specialize in treating OCD. I’m driven to help people in significant pain, so to treat those with OCD, I’ve become more proficient and confident in the treatment that I provide. Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy allows me to do that because it gets the results I’m looking for. Those results lead someone with OCD, someone like yourself, to find a more fulfilling life.

I’m headed for my 21st year as a licensed therapist and love helping people break free from OCD. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy during sessions, which I learned how to use early on in my practice. I have only grown to become more confident in my ability to treat people effectively using ERP. I’m a published writer, including a book on OCD and how to move from fear to freedom. I’m excited to work with you and can’t wait to set you up for success in your ERP journey.

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.

Licensed Therapist, LPCC

During my time in private practice as a licensed therapist, a family member and a friend described their OCD struggles to me. Once I discovered how often OCD was being mistreated, and the more I learned from people facing this challenge, the more I wanted to help those in need. Now that I specialize in OCD, I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to treat anyone with this challenging disorder.

I deal with anxiety myself and know the physical symptoms that go along with it. But I also know my anxiety is nothing compared to your OCD. I've been treating people with OCD for over 25 years as a licensed therapist, and I can tell you that out of all the available treatments out there, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy is your best option. It's the only therapy I use to treat OCD.

As a therapist, I am non-judgmental. Our sessions will be very collaborative—we'll start where you are and go from there, depending on what your needs are. When I'm not doing therapy, I love to be outside. My family has a lake house in Michigan that we go to often, and I love to go there with my son and my husband to kayak when we can.

Licensed Therapist, LMHC

My first priority as a therapist is to build trust. I know the thoughts you're having might be distressing. You can tell me anything. I won't judge you, and I will meet you where you're at, as an individual. Some fun facts about me: Every week, I get a Netflix DVD—yes, a physical DVD—sent to me. I love cinema. I also love watching The Price Is Right. I think I'm an older woman inside.

Licensed Therapist, MA

One of the most important things about therapy is the connection and relationship between a therapist and the person seeking therapy. I work really hard not only to help both of us feel connected and heard but also for you to feel like this is a partnership. We're going to get a little uncomfortable together, because that's where most of the good work happens. Outside of work, I really enjoy spending time with my family and my daughter, cooking new foods, and playing chess.

Licensed Therapist, MA

I prioritize human connection. We're here as two humans, trying to improve those negative symptoms that you want to change. I will help you feel understood, and I hope you will understand me. In session, we will look at what OCD does in your daily life; I won't throw buzzwords at you. A fun fact about me: I have been studying with a Tibetan lama for 15 years. That study, and that Buddhist community I've found, has changed my life.

Licensed Therapist, LISW-S

I look at a person with OCD as separate from their symptoms. OCD is not who you are. In fact, OCD is preventing you from being your true self. My approach is acceptance of the person first, then tackling the OCD with a nonjudgmental, caring stance. When I'm not doing therapy, I love birdwatching, gardening, knitting, crocheting, and reading anything I can get my hands on. Fun fact: You may see me wearing fingerless gloves during sessions—not as a fashion statement, but because I have Raynaud's Syndrome, which causes my digits to overreact to even slight chills and become painful. Although I usually try to match my gloves to my outfit, sometimes I have to grab whichever pair is available, so you may see some strange color combinations!

Licensed Therapist, MA

Everything we do together will be collaborative, but I will also be providing tough love. I want the best for you, and all our goals will be made together. However, sometimes I'm going to be the villain in your story, and I'm OK with that if it helps you become a better version of yourself. In the end, I'm that older sibling who taught you that life isn't all rainbows and butterflies all the time, providing you with a sense of humor and ways to confront anxiety without compulsions. Outside of work, I enjoy all things Cincinnati sports. One of my favorite activities is playing in a softball recreation league. I also enjoy yoga and going on walks as a meditative practice.

My approach to OCD therapy is person-centered. I understand that each person is unique and taps into their strengths as we utilize ERP to elicit real change.

Licensed Therapist, M.Ed

As an OCD therapist, my approach is like that of a person-centered personal trainer. First and foremost, you'll be unconditionally accepted, appreciated, and respected. I’m guessing that OCD has told you that you’re no good, unworthy of acceptance, and should be deeply ashamed. These are lies, and I aim to help you see through them. We will meet, collaborate to decide on a target, and develop exercises to build “strength” or resilience to anxiety-evoking thoughts. You will feel in charge of your recovery; we “add more weight to the bar” only when you’re ready. Outside of work, I look forward to growing vegetables in the warm weather seasons. I have pet Shih-Tzu that strongly resembles an Ewok (from Return of the Jedi). She is full of various hijinks but really likes to steal red bell peppers from my garden.

My approach to treating OCD is straightforward and direct. I will be utilizing ERP methods, techniques, and interventions throughout your treatment. Once our plan is set for treatment, I do my best to keep us on track. Life happens, and sometimes we may need to take time to focus on unexpected events. Outside of work, I enjoy going to the library, cooking, and playing games. I'm also an international speaker on topics related to eating disorders, body image, couple and intimate relationships, and Black mental health and well-being.

I treat OCD with ERP, an evidence-based therapy that is the gold standard. I believe it's important to emphasize collaboration, empathy, and compassion. I always try to strike a balance between the evidence-supported implementation of ERP and being an authentic human who's helping you along a difficult path. Outside of work, I enjoy playing guitar, bicycle riding, and reading several kinds of books, with historical and science fiction being my favorite genres.

I see education on OCD as fundamental for recovery. The more you understand about OCD, the easier it is to challenge the thoughts you fear and the compulsions that often follow. Outside of work, I love to do creative hobbies, like baking and decorating cakes and cookies, crocheting, knitting, and painting. I also enjoy going for nature walks, exercising (especially dance), and spending time with people I love. A fun fact about me: I learned to quilt at the age of 6.
