Narrative of Services:

I have over 10 years of experience and training in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP). I work with adolescents, young adults, and adults. I also include family members in therapy to increase the treatment’s success, and I especially enjoy empowering parents to help their children at home. I also have 10 years of experience with treating eating disorders and use the Maudsley family-based treatment (FBT) with ACT and ERP for all ages.

ACT in combination with ERP is a highly effective, hopeful, and non-pathologizing approach to mental and physical health and well being.

Training Description:

I’m a licensed clinical social worker providing teletherapy to residents throughout Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. I specialize in anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, and trauma. I’m passionate about and committed to mental health care based on science, research, and advanced psychological interventions.

I have completed advanced training in anxiety and OCD through the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS) conferences and have ongoing consultation with IOCDF advisory board member Lisa Coyne, PhD.

Diversity Statement:

I tailor sessions to provide affirming, responsive, and safe therapy that acknowledges and respects an individual’s unique, individual identities such as gender, religion, ethnicity, physical ability, and sexuality. I am an experienced ally to LGBTQ+ clients.
