Narrative of Services:

I’m currently part of a Chicago general private practice & offer traditional outpatient services for OCD, anxiety & common co-occurring conditions. My goal is to remain highly focused on OCD treatment using the evidence-based practices of CBT, ERP & ACT. Thanks to my experience at Amita/Alexian & Rogers, I have experience working with all types of OCD – contamination, checking, counting & perfectionism to name a few common ones as well as lesser-known “Pure-O” types – violent/sexual/harm thoughts (including HOCD, POCD & ROCD) & Scrupulosity. We can work together to create an exposure program that’s paced right just for you.

Willis Counseling & Consulting is dedicated to serving all populations. As Clinical Training Director there, much of my work is focused on making sure all clinicians are informed & prepared to practice in service of that value. From intake to therapy, we recognize names & pronouns (mine are she/they), a range of sexual, relationship & gender orientations as well as non-traditional/non-vanilla lifestyles. Our staff is a diverse mix of people who fully support all our guests, including offering clinical bilingual services. We support Black Lives Matters & recognize that many of us have privileges we need to keep in check.

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

Training Description:

Treating OCD & Anxiety disorders has been my speciality for a decade now, with 8 years at the intensive outpatient programs of Amita/Alexian Brothers & Rogers Behavioral Health. Under the supervision of two IOCDF Scientific Advisory Board members, I supported hundreds of people & their families as they learned to challenge & manage OCD/Anxiety using CBT, ERP & ACT. Additionally, I highly enjoy & often work with adults who also identify as autistic. My training is ongoing as there will always be more to learn from books & conferences as well as my colleagues & clients.
