I began my career working in school systems with behaviorally-challenged children and then moved into treating adults & families for severe mental health challenges. Treating OCD was always part of my caseload. I've even done face-to-face exposure work with some challenging disorders. My ability to treat any OCD subtype is enhanced by using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). ERP is evidence-based, which means the treatment is supported by both research and positive outcomes.
I'm a big believer in ERP, which means placing you in situations where you face your fears. You'll be safely guided by me so that you can learn the exposure work properly. As your therapist, I don't see any faults in your character. Your OCD is not a sign of who you are. I'm here to help you succeed in treatment, but ERP is not a cure-all. You'll learn how to manage OCD so you can find success in life once you leave treatment. I've worked with kids in foster care, moving into working with adults facing uphill battles. My passion lies deeply in helping people. Facing OCD, I know that you may feel misunderstood. I've met judgment in my time as a therapist, so I assure you that you will have a total non-judgmental experience with me.
