I am a member of a group practice where nursing, psychologist, and psychiatrist coverage is also available and we work closely together to provide necessary treatment to patients. I have worked extensively in the county mental health facility prior to the current clinic and across both systems have seen in excess of 100 OCD patients.

I am a licensed MFT, and have candidate standing in my clinical psychology PhD program. I am trained in PCIT, CBT, and completed my year-long doctoral internship with Rogers Memorial Hospital in Wisconsin specializing in treatment of OCD via ERP in residential, inpatient, and outpatient settings. I have been providing OCD treatment using CBT/ERP in the outpatient setting for 5 years.
I have worked extensively with patients of various backgrounds including Caucasian, Hispanic, African American, South Asian, as well as of both male and female genders.
I have had multitude experiences with education and training in cultural competency, as well as the opportunity to work for 13+ years in community mental health clinics allowing me to work extensively with the underserved, lower socioeconomic, and minority populations. I also hold positions as adjunct faculty with local universities and teach courses in cultural competency on a regular basis.
