My experience with treating OCD:

As a licensed social worker, I’ve worked with many children and families dealing with a range of challenges, including OCD. I also had OCD during my childhood, so I know how difficult it can be to function day-by-day. Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy is the right treatment for OCD because it was created specifically to treat all subtypes, and it’s proven to work. I was able to recover from OCD. I want you to do the same.


About Me

Your intrusive thoughts may seem real to you, in a way that reflects who you are, especially given their intensity and frequency. I know that your OCD thoughts are not who you are. It’s also important to understand that your thoughts are not your intentions, so it’s clear to me that you are unwilling to act out on your intrusive thoughts. I’m here to guide you in ERP sessions that train you to handle anything OCD throws your way. I’ve worked in hospitals, clinics and even spent a few years working at a psych emergency room. Whatever you tell me, I’ve heard it before. Members say that they find me compassionate, empathic, and driven to help people help themselves. OCD can be a hidden and lonely challenge, but together, we’ll bring your struggle to the surface so you can face it and overcome it.
