Anxiety and OCD

Great to meet you!

Great job for taking this step! I'm a licensed professional counselor specializing in OCD and other anxiety disorders (social anxiety, specific phobias, trichotillomania, etc.). I utilize a combination of evidence based treatment modalities to fit each persons unique needs. With about 7 years of experience in an OCD residential facility, I saw the need for OCD specialists. My goal is help you accomplish your goals and if that includes making you the boss of you life.

A bit about my approach to therapy

When I am working with clients, my approach is to consider the whole individuals wherever they may be in their treatment journey. The therapeutic relationship is extremely important to me and studies show that the better the therapeutic relationship, the more effective the treatment outcome will be. I also like to emphasize self compassion in my work because it is a helpful therapeutic tool that I have noticed most if not all my previous clients have benefitted from using.

What you can expect from our first session

Clients I have worked with typically set goals that include them facing their fears in order to be able to live a more value fulfilled life. Clients can expect to work towards those goals at a pace they decide is best for them. Although some sessions might be more challenging than others, clients have told me the life they gained was worth the challenge.
