I integrate this evidence-based practice (especially ERP, CBT, and ACT) with an interpersonal style that is collaborative, open, and non-judgmental. You may be experiencing “stuckness” in your life, feeling caught in thought loops that have left you overwhelmed, anxious, in pain, hopeless. Yet, something brought you here – somewhere within you is an action tendency to move toward healing, growth, and connection. Together through therapy, we can tap into that healing energy already within you, reframe and make space for painful experiences, reconstruct ways of moving through the world, and create space for movement toward what matters most to you.
Diversity Statement: I work with clients with a diverse range of identities with regard to race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic status, religion, gender, sexuality, and ability. My approach emphasizes humility, sensitivity, openness, curiosity, and affirmation toward these intersecting identities.
My clients and I often discuss ways that these constructs may show up in their lives in general and/or in the therapeutic relationship given the systems of privilege and power to which we are all subject. I have received extensive training on cultural sensitivity and consider myself to be a social justice-minded therapist as well as an ally to LGBTQIA++ individuals.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels (ADA accessible): Yes
While I have worked in a variety of clinical and research settings, my training in OCD specifically began in academic research at Vanderbilt (where I attended undergraduate and grad school) over a decade ago and extended into several years of clinical work at Rogers Behavioral Health. In both settings, I was lucky to have been supervised by experts in the field and had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of obsessive-compulsive presentations. Now, virtually 100% of my caseload is dedicated to individuals seeking help for some form of anxiety, the majority of whom are diagnosed with OCD specifically.
