I've been a licensed therapist since 2014, with 7 years of experience at an OCD residential unit at Rogers Memorial Hospital where I saw some of the most debilitating cases of OCD. I learned about Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, the most effective form of OCD treatment, in college and decided to focus on ERP in both undergrad and grad school. It’s been my intent to help people with OCD get through their challenges, so I’m happy that I’m able to show you how to manage OCD on your own with confidence.
Growing up as an anxious child, I learned that anxiety-producing experiences got easier to manage the more I went through them. But even with OCD treatment being a focal point of mine throughout college, I didn’t receive a full perspective of OCD until I experienced it myself. I prefer to be the educator during sessions, because I feel that being informed about your OCD can not only be helpful to you but calming as well. It’s important to know, above all else, that intrusive thoughts are not who you are and do not define you. I’ve been told by people who have worked with me that I am an enthusiastic teacher, and get people to do things they didn't think they could do. I care deeply about helping others, through support groups and education, and even have my own podcast. I’m ready to empower you, so we can bring joy back into your life.
