Narrative of Services:
I provide ACT-informed ERP and RODBT to adults and adolescents with OCD, Health Anxiety, picking disorders, and other OCD spectrum issues.
Approximately half of my clients identify as LGBTQ and I consider myself an active ally to those communities. My husband was raised in a Thai-Chinese family in Bangkok and he was educated in a boarding school in northern India. My brother and his wife, who is Japanese, raise their family between the US and Japan. This exposure has helped me have personal and professional insight into helping clients of East-, Southeast-, and South-Asian descent.
Training Description:

My initial training was in a CBT program with a heavy ERP focus at Pacific University. I went on to complete ACT for OCD trainings with various professionals who trained with Steven Hayes at University of Nevada, Reno. Additionally, I am in the process of training in Radically Open DBT, which is a newer evidence based therapy for disorders of overcontrol.
