Narrative of Services:

Typically, approximately 50% of my individual practice consists of clients with OCD and/or OC Related Disorders. I have treated approximately 75-100 clients with OCD and related disorders.

Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:

Co-occurring disorders treated include anxiety and adjustment disorders, coping with chronic illness and pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder. My approach is transdiagnostic and integrative, with a focus on individualizing treatment to the specific needs of the client within the framework of evidence-based practice (i.e., ERP, CBT, and ACT).

Training Description:

I hold a joint PhD in Clinical Psychology and Developmental Psychopathology from the University of Minnesota. I have been treating clients with OCD since 2012. I have trained with faculty with expertise in OCD at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine (graduate school), University of Manitoba Health Sciences Center (internship), and Children’s Hospital Colorado/University of Colorado School of Medicine (postdoctoral fellowship). I have pursued additional training through conferences and workshops offered by IOCDF (e.g., annual conference, Hoarding Meeting), ABCT, ACBS (e.g., OCD 2-day intensive, annual conferences), Yale (SPACE workshop), and the Tourette’s Association of America (CBIT workshop).

Diversity Statement:

Beginning during graduate school, I have worked with a meaningful number of clients with diverse experiences related to gender and sexuality (up to 20% of clients), race and ethnicity (up to 30% of clients), physical ability (up to 20% of clients), and religion (up to 30% of clients).

In addition to coursework during my graduate degree, I have pursued additional training to build my competency with sexual and gender diversity (e.g., one-day workshop on gender dysphoria, 6-month bimonthly consultation and training group with faculty at University of Denver and University of Colorado, ongoing consultation with colleagues in private practice and at the University of Colorado School of Medicine), racial, ethnic, and religious diversity (e.g., ACBS Annual Conferences meetings, independent readings, graduate school research with international adoptees), and physical disability (e.g., several years of post-graduate research with individuals with chronic illness, in particular autonomic dysfunction).
