Narrative of Services:
As the Director of Clearview Horizons, I am passionate about providing high-quality care for individuals with OCD. We also specialize in perfectionism, social anxiety, BDD, health anxiety, generalized anxiety, panic attacks, trichotillomania, hoarding, and depression. Our services include: Individual therapy for children, adolescents, and adults; Intensive Outpatient Program for teens with OCD/anxiety; and OCD and Social Anxiety groups for adults.
Exposure and ritual prevention is an integral aspect of our therapy. Exposures help clients change their relationship with OCD/anxiety from a fear-based perspective to a place of positive change and empowerment. ACT, CBT, and Compassion-focused approaches complement the exposure work.
My OCD specialization started in 2007 when I was a counselor at McLean Hospital’s residential OCD-Institute. Since then I also worked at Rogers Memorial Hospital’s residential OCD center, partial hospitalization OCD program, and intensive outpatient OCD program. I founded Clearview Horizons, an OCD specialty group practice, in 2016.
In addition, my research has focused on increasing awareness regarding common types of OCD symptoms (e.g., sexual obsessions, violent obsessions, etc.) which are often misdiagnosed by professionals. My passion for OCD education has led me to conduct full-day continuing education workshops, for mental health professionals, on identifying and treating OCD.
