Narrative of Services:

In my 10 years practicing, I have seen many individuals who identify as experiencing OCD in varying degrees. The majority of treatment with them has been based on my clinical/educational career, self-study, and basic and foundational trainings in OCD. As I became a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional in 2020, my caseload of clients with intrusive thoughts and OCD related disorders increased. I am scheduled to attend the IOCDF Behavior Therapy Training Institute in Indianapolis in May of 2023 for more specialized training and experience.

Training Description:

As a social worker, with a diverse set of experiences and understanding of cultural humility, it is important to continue to educate myself and be open to learning and growing in this area. I continue to receive extensive training in cultural humility and view myself to be a social justice minded clinician. I acknowledge current racial injustice and systematic racism in our country, as well as, power imbalances in systems and relationships. As a clinician, I am committed to listening, learning, and working tirelessly to be anti-racist. I stand in solidarity with my BIPOC colleagues and clients.

Diversity Statement:

As a social worker, I value cultural humility, understanding power imbalances in systems and relationships and work with a diverse demographic of clients.

As a social worker, with a diverse set of experiences and understanding of cultural humility, it is important to continue to educate myself and be open to learning and growing in this area. Last year, I completed “Addressing Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders among BIPOC,” “Perinatal Mental Health: Culturally Informed Approaches to Screening, Assessment, and Treatment,” and will continue to stay up to date on my education around working with diverse populations and practicing cultural humility.
