Great to meet you!

Hello and great to meet you! First of all congratulations on taking this important step for yourself! I like to think my sense of humor and positive outlook on situations are a big part of my love for empowering others. As an LCSW, I’ve been practicing for over 20 years in multiple settings. In addition to working as a clinical therapist, I've been a business owner of my yoga studio, worked as a hospital and school social worker. I specialize in anxiety and OCD.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I am described as a down to earth, warm person with a sense of humor, passionate about assisting you to find your goals. I'm open minded and focused helping you find clarity and balance in your life.

What you can expect from our first session

As a goal oriented clinician, we will together find just the right approach. I commonly use mind-body (ACT) and cognitive evaluations (CBT) as well as specific therapies such exposure work for OCD.
