​​I've been practicing as a licensed therapist for over 25 years, and my main area of focus is OCD. I use ERP therapy to treat any OCD theme, including those that are aggressive or taboo. I realize I'm asking you to do something scary and hard. I will give you the experience of having somebody alongside you every step of the way. I hope you find me to be a combination of compassionate, direct, and challenging—with encouragement all along the way. You can stand up to this.

I began my career working with people suffering from eating disorders, and I learned how many of them also had OCD. Since then, I've wanted to help people with OCD get back to doing the things they want to do with the people they care about. I've been a therapist since 2015, graduating from Marquette University. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because it's proven to work as a treatment for every OCD subtype.

Licensed Therapist, Ph.D.

I've had several subtypes of OCD since I was very young. I've done ERP myself, so I know how effective it is. I also know it takes a lot of courage just to get here. As a therapist, I create a welcoming, warm environment. I'll ask what you want to get out of therapy and craft a treatment plan based on that, realizing other concerns can arise on a week-to-week basis. Beyond OCD, I have extensive experience treating anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and other conditions closely related to OCD.

I'm diagnosed with OCD myself. I've received treatment, and it's had lasting results. OCD is often misunderstood and stigmatized, leading to delays in diagnosis and treatment. I'm passionate about making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals with OCD. Effective treatment can dramatically improve your quality of life. In therapy, I aim to create a safe space where you'll feel understood, validated, and empowered to manage your symptoms and live a fulfilling life. I also specialize in LGBTQ+ issues, substance use disorders, and co-occurring mood disorders.

I aim to empower people with the tools they need to move beyond the place where they're stuck. Outside of work, I love to read, garden, travel, and spend time with family. I love cats; I've been told I’m fast on my way to becoming 'that cat lady.'

I've found that the greatest measure of success is the ability to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Becoming a therapist at NOCD has forced me to get out of my comfort zone and grow professionally. Outside of work, I love being in the natural environment, whether it’s gardening or hiking. I enjoy painting, pottery, and all things handmade. I find the creative process very therapeutic.

I believe creating a safe place is the starting place of treatment. I care about who you are as a person as much as why you are here for therapy. You are more than your diagnosis. My approach to treating OCD includes acceptance and working to build trust to create the foundation on which I can support members in attaining their therapeutic goals. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my family. My son and daughter both keep me on my toes with their incredible sense of humor, love of music, and playful spirits. I also enjoy traveling, journaling, sitting in nature, and watching documentaries.

I have extensive knowledge about and experience in treating PTSD, trauma, and personality disorders. My background includes active duty military, veterans, and survivors of domestic violence and other traumatic events.

I am a collaborative and creative OCD therapist. For therapy to work, it has to work for you. I am here for you, every step of the way. OCD is often misunderstood and mistreated. When I learned that, on average, it takes 17 years for someone to be accurately diagnosed with OCD, I knew I was in the right place to utilize my clinical training and advocacy skills. In addition to treating OCD, I have extensive experience working with the neurodivergent community, children, and male perpetrators of domestic violence.

Providing therapy runs in my family. My mom is a therapist, and I followed her path because of the passion for therapy I developed during my own mental health journey. I have real compassion for people who experience OCD. I've experienced my own anxieties, fears, and intrusive thoughts. I understand how anxiety can be a manipulative emotion. I know the value of what therapy can provide. I also know how hard it can be to be vulnerable with someone. My goal is to create a space where you feel safe sharing your thoughts without judgment.

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.
