21 years of experience
Solution oriented

Welcome! With over twenty years of experience in clinical practice, I specialize in treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Anxiety, supported by advanced studies in neuroscience. As a clinician who personally experiences OCD and anxiety, I am uniquely positioned to blend professional knowledge with personal understanding, fostering a therapeutic environment that empowers and inspires. I aim to provide compassionate and effective therapy to adolescents and adults, transforming our sessions into a pivotal journey towards healing and self-discovery. Let's get started!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

The initial step in beginning our therapeutic relationship is getting to know each other. In our first interactions, we'll share a bit about ourselves, and more importantly, we'll start delving into what has brought you to therapy. Our decision to work together must be collaborative and mutual. Rest assured, I am committed to providing a safe and supportive space for you to make this decision comfortably.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I firmly believe in the importance of being transparent and realistic about our goals in therapy. You'll discover that I'm approachable and easy to talk to, employing a practical approach to guide you through life's challenges and help you navigate its complexities.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is your compassionate guide to a healthier mind. Together, we'll explore and reshape the thoughts and habits that challenge you, replacing self-doubt with self-confidence. Think of it as learning to steer your thoughts, gently shifting from "I can't" to "I can." This journey isn't just about talking; it's about real change through practical steps and manageable goals. We'll tackle each challenge together, turning insights into actions and fears into growth. With each session, you'll gather tools and strategies for a lifetime of well-being, not just for now. Let's embark on this journey to a happier, more empowered you.

Exposure Response Prevention (ERP)

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is a supportive and practical approach to overcoming anxieties and obsessions. In ERP, we gently face the fears or situations that cause you distress, not all at once, but step by step, at a pace that feels right for you. It's about learning to encounter these fears without returning to old responses or rituals. Imagine it as a journey where each step forward reduces the power these fears hold over you. Together, we'll build resilience and confidence, transforming your response to anxiety. This process is not just about facing fears; it's about reclaiming control and joy in your life. As we progress, you'll find strength in your newfound ability to manage anxieties, leading to a more peaceful and empowered you. Let's take these steps together towards a life less dominated by fear.
