Welcome! I specialize in treating OCD, BFRB's, & anxiety. The fears that take you down rabbit-holes of rumination, obsessive thoughts that feel all-consuming, rituals, compulsions, urges, & hours of "spiraling". The thoughts that you know are "illogical" but feel so real. You've tried to "just stop thinking about it" but you can't stop the thoughts from coming back. I want you to know that you're not alone, it's not your fault, & there is hope. You were never meant to live a life controlled by worry, panic, or fear. I know that your unwanted thoughts do not represent who you are, so I strive to convey acceptance & nonjudgement.
I specialize in using Exposure & Response Prevention for OCD, which is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that is highly effective. I also work with BFRB's, such as hair-pulling and skin-picking by using Habit Reversal Training (HRT). I also provide consultation to therapists who wish to gain education about OCD and ERP.
You've made the first step...yay you! It may have taken you many years or you may have seen many other therapists before arriving here. You will receive a warm, understanding, & empathetic approach in our work together. I encourage you to call me for a consult so we can see whether we are the best fit for each other!
