Currently, I only see a few patients with OCD. I would like to offer more availability to treat OCD utilizing ERP in the future.
Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:
I treat co-occurring disorders including Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Adjustment Disorder, Major Depression and people with neurodivergent presentations (e.g. AD/HD, ASD). I utilize evidence based practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Social Skills Training, Emotion Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
I first began treating OCD and other anxiety disorders while a graduate student at the University of Toledo’s Center for the Study of Anxiety Disorders and Depression (study on manualized treatment) from 2003-2006. I was also supervised in treating cases of OCD while an intern at the Boston University School of Medicine/Boston Medical Center from 2006-2007 by a CBT supervisor. After graduating, I obtained additional training in Exposure and Response Prevention while supervised toward licensure by a CBT supervisor, from 2010-2012, duing an ERP workshop through the Knowledge Tree in 2021 and most recently the Cleveland 2022 BTTI training.
I am an LGBTQIA affirming psychologist. I practice from a culturally sensitive, trauma-informed perspective. I offer pro-bono services to immigrants and refugees in our community and accept various insurance, including medicaid/medicare.
I was a psychology fellow in Psychiatry at the Boston University School of Medicine/Center for Multicultural Mental Health (CMMH) in Boston. At this APA approved internship, I received didactic training in multicultural psychology and provided intensive inpatient and outpatient psychotherapy to adults with diverse biopsychosocial needs. My dissertation was on the topic of cultural discrimination stress. I continue to seek learning in the multicultural space. I strive to provide competent care to LGBTQIA+ folks and pursue continuous education in this area. I am a member of Equitas Health Institute and NMTP (Network for Multicultural training in Psychology, associated with CMMH).
