Having OCD makes a person think that their intrusive thoughts are important and mean something about their character. These thoughts feel real and even scare people into thinking they can act on them. But intrusive thoughts are not a reflection of who you are, and because of that, there’s no genuine intention of wanting to make your thoughts real. But it’s not that easy to allow intrusive thoughts to simply pass by. I’ll show you how to face them and not rely on compulsions to relieve the anxiety that they cause. I happen to be a board-certified coach. Motivating people is second nature to me. The key to our sessions is that I will look to tap into what’s already inside you, that willingness to work and overcome challenges. I will walk beside you as you embark on your journey to feeling better in all aspects of your life.

You need to know that the intrusive thoughts you're experiencing are not who you are and don't dictate your values and beliefs. I understand that you may be nervous about sharing your OCD thoughts or feel ashamed to even have them. I'll create an environment that makes you feel safe to open up. You need an ERP therapist that will listen to you without judgment. I want to be that therapist for you. It's essential that we have open communication during our time, and that includes me being clear to you on what's going on during sessions. Members describe me as warm, compassionate, and understanding. I'm here to support you, so together, we can break you away from the hold that OCD has on you so that you can get your life back on track.

My early training in how to treat OCD was led by Dr. Patrick McGrath himself. I’m a firm believer in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because I’ve seen how well it works. You'll be asked to face your fears during our ERP sessions, and will need someone qualified like myself to help you overcome those fears. Participate in ERP therapy with me, learn the tools that will help you manage your OCD, and you’ll soon be on the road to getting the results you want.

Human nature is to avoid the things that make us uncomfortable. OCD therapy is going to feel uncomfortable — you're no longer avoiding the things you used to avoid. It's like physical therapy: You have to do some work, but it can be life-changing. As a therapist, I'm relaxed, warm, and welcoming. I will educate you on the process and goal of ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention), an effective model that will help you. My other areas of professional focus include anxiety, depression, trauma, trichotillomania and BFRBs (body-focused repetitive behaviors), and adjustment disorder.

My own indirect and direct relationship with OCD and anxiety has helped me understand people and their families who are also suffering from OCD and co-occurring disorders. I'm a creative and hopeful therapist who takes an individualized approach. Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) has some concrete focuses, but it is important to be unique with each exposure and each member; none of us are exactly the same. My other areas of focus include major depressive disorder, faith-based counseling, and generalized anxiety disorder.

I understand what you’re going through, because I have struggled with OCD myself. Outside of work, I enjoy true-crime books and podcasts, and I love being in nature. I once hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back up in one day. That's about 10 hours. I didn't think I'd make it, but I did. It was a great experience—but next time I'll spend the night before hiking back up.

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 practice what I preach. I'm very open with the people I work with about what we're doing and what my experience with OCD has been. I like to make sure members guide the session as much as they can, and I like to incorporate humor as much as possible to lighten the mood. Outside of work, I like hanging out with my dogs Miko and Flick. A random fun fact about me: My two-year-old child was born in a Texas snowstorm.

In ERP, one of the most effective forms of treatment for OCD, we'll work together to identify your specific triggers, obsessive thoughts and behaviors, then I'll guide you through techniques to face your fears gradually. I'll work with you to develop skills to tolerate distress and uncertainty without attempting to get rid of anxiety through compulsions. When I'm not working, my favorite hobby is traveling. I love experiencing new cultures, learning about people, eating new foods and taking photos.

I focus on OCD, neurodiversity-affirming and LGBTQIA+-affirming therapy. My partner, family, and many friends are neurodiverse and LGBTQIA+, so I'm passionate about helping others who are marginalized and need a therapist who's up-to-date and understanding. In therapy, we'll gradually face your fears together, taking it step by step. This might feel tough at first, but the anxiety will ease over time. You won't have to do this alone — we'll work together, and I'm here to support you. Progress isn't always smooth, but every step counts. You've got this!

Licensed Therapist, MA

I love NOCD's treatment model. It gives you the ability to start treatment with increased frequency, which can make it intense. However, this is the best time to be focused and motivated and create the change you desire for yourself. As you learn how to tolerate discomfort, lean into those feelings, and make strides toward improvement, an "a-ha" moment occurs. You realize you are not your OCD—you are not your thoughts, and you can tolerate them. Some facts about me: My Christian faith is very important to me. I love working with people from all around the world; the diversity is such a joy to experience. I am bilingual and speak fluent Dutch and English. I was raised in the Netherlands (as a Dutch Navy brat) and have lived in the U.S. and the Netherlands for half my life. I am a cat lover to the core, and I appreciate sarcastic humor.

As a therapist, I'm direct and solution-centered. I want to help others who don't feel safe with their thought processes and show there's hope. Therapy can feel intimidating in the beginning. The key thing to remember: The more you let down your walls and become vulnerable to the process, the more change you'll see within yourself. Trust the process and continue to show up, even when it's hard. I love working with individuals and seeing how far they've come.

OCD is very personal to me. It's something I experience in my own life. Therapy has gifted me with the ability to confront it and feel empowered. My approach to OCD is empathic, calm, and present. My training in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and ERP (Exposure and Response Therapy) has been invaluable to my approach to OCD and most diagnoses. ACT and ERP help us learn how to be present with our worries and distinguish ourselves from them by exploring our values and how we want to behave despite our thoughts and feelings.
