Narrative of Services:

I mostly see individuals with OCD, though have experience with many other concerns such as depression, panic disorder, and addiction. Generally, I draw on ERP and ACT when treating with OCD. However, I don’t view these as “one-size fits all” solutions and aim to work collaboratively with clients to find a useful approach. I often work with people who have had limited success with traditional OCD treatments.

Along with ERP and ACT, I have considerable experience working with people who are utilizing ketamine to treatment OCD. For those engaged with these treatments, I can offer preparation and integration therapy.

Training Description:

I have a masters degree in social work from the University of Chicago and am a doctoral candidate in social work and cultural anthropology at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. While at Michigan, I worked as a research assistant and co-authored a publication on one of the largest and most rigorous studies of Exposure and Respond Prevention Therapy for OCD.

I received clinical training on OCD at the University of Illinois at Chicago Mood and Anxiety Disorders program. I also completed the Pediatric OCD training through the International OCD Foundation.

Diversity Statement:

I am trained as a cultural anthropologist and helped found a non-profit clinic in Chicago that provided free mental health care to undocumented and uninsured individuals. I feel very comfortable addressing cultural or religious issues that may come up during OCD treatment.

I was a lead organizer for the 2021 and 2022 OCD in Society Conferences, which aimed to incorporate diverse and innovative perspectives in understanding OCD. As a clinician and researcher, I am committed to developing broader and more inclusive perspectives for approaching OCD treatment and advocacy.
