Narrative of Services:

About 80% of my clients are currently being treated for anxiety/OCD. I utilize an integrative framework, and use evidence-based treatment strategies (I-CBT, ERP, ACT, meta-cognitive approaches) to help my clients free themselves from OCD and learn to cope with anxiety in ways that allow them to live fully in their lives.

Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:

Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, trauma symptoms and Panic Disorder often occur alongside OCD and are addressed and treated as needed.

Training Description:

OCD and anxiety disorders are my specialty. I offer my clients choice and agency in choosing a treatment approach and am excited we are at a point in our understanding of OCD to offer multiple treatment options. I have been providing OCD treatment to adults and college aged individuals in private practice, medical and college counseling settings for the past 10 years. I collaborate and consult with OCD and anxiety senior therapists for both I-CBT and ERP treatments on a regular basis, attend ongoing trainings and workshops and completed the BTTI training in October 2021.

Diversity Statement:

I have had the privilege to work with clients with diverse gender, sexuality, socioeconomic, racial and cultural identities. I strive to be anti-racist and LGBTQ+ affirming in my approach as a therapist. I work with clients to identify and validate one’s identities and systemic intersections to facilitate empowerment. I tailor the therapy to facilitate empowerment through our work together as we identify, clarify and validate individual needs. I have previously worked in college counseling, community mental health clinics in Los Angeles and in hospital settings (LAC+USC and UCLA) providing individual, group and family therapy.
