Narrative of Services:

In private practice, I primarily work with clients with OCD. I provide Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy with Exposure Response Prevention, which is the first-line treatment for OCD. My approach will be tailored to your needs and also include techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness-based Therapy.

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

Training Description:

I gained my experience in treating OCD at the OCD Clinic at BC Children’s Hospital/University of British Columbia (UBC), where I worked for three years. There, I was involved in providing group therapy sessions and intensive outpatient treatment for individuals with complex OCD.

In June 2018, I attended the Behavioural Therapy Training Institute in New York and learned from the experts in providing evidence-based care for adults with OCD.

I received my Master’s degree in Clinical and Health Psychology from the Freie Universitaet Berlin in Germany. I fell in love with Canada while completing my Master’s thesis at UBC.

Diversity Statement:

I enjoy working with culturally diverse populations, and being an immigrant, I find that my clients and I usually connect well.

I completed the San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training in February 2020.
