Narrative of Services:

My practice is approximately 60% for OCD and OC related disorders. I have treated dozens of patients with severe OCD and OC related disorders on both a residential and outpatient basis.

Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:

Individuals with OCD are often also struggling with co-morbid anxiety and/or depression. I individualize treatment and use CBT, ERP, and ACT to address an individuals distinct needs.

Training Description:

My graduate clinical work and research focused on the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders, primarily Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Trichotillomania. Before transitioning into part-time private practice in 2017, I worked at the McLean Houston OCD Program treating severe OCD and anxiety disorders on a residential, intensive outpatient, and outpatient level for individuals of all ages.

I completed intensive training from the International OCD Foundation Behavior Therapy Training Institute (BTTI) in 2016 and became BTTI certified in 2017. I completed SPACE training in November 2020.

Diversity Statement:

I am committed to providing individualized, evidence based treatment for all individuals and have experience both in classes and in my practice with individuals of all backgrounds. In addition, I am fluent in Spanish and provide services in both English and Spanish.
