I am part of a group practice that offers Individual therapy for children, adolescents and adults. We provide Adult and Adolescent Dialectical Behavior Therapy, ERP, Prolonged Exposure, psychological testing, EMDR, Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Exposure Therapy, Couples and Family therapy, and Walk Talk Therapy. 50% of my practice is seeing clients with OCD and doing ERP. 90% of my clients have either PTSD, CPTSD or some form of an attachment disorder which often overlap with OCD.

Most of my clients have more than one diagnosis. Typical diagnoses I work with are Major Depressive Disorder, various Anxiety Disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), CPTSD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Eating Disorders, substance abuse, and various Phobia’s.
