Counselor
1110 N Washington St
Naperville, Illinois 60563

Narrative of Services:

My practice is approximately 50% OCD and OCD Spectrum/Related Disorders. I offer Exposure and Response Prevention but also Cognitive Therapy and other approaches, depending upon what an individual client is most comfortable with and what is most effective for the individual client’s situation.

I treat co-occurring disorders that include various combinations of OCD, Hoarding Disorder, Trauma (PTSD), Anxiety Disorders, Major Depression, Bipolar Disorders, and stress related to relationships, work, etc. I integrate varied treatment approaches, depending on what is most effective for the individual’s particular presenting concerns. Family therapy is limited to working with loved ones with regard to ending accommodation of OCD and/or Hoarding Disorder.

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

I have been helping individuals with OCD for over 10 years, and I have been in practice for over 20 years.
