Narrative of Services:

I have treated people for anxiety, depression and trauma for more than a decade. While I haven’t had extensive experience treating individuals with OCD, I am committed to expanding my expertise in this area and providing care to more people. I hope to help eliminate some of the barriers that prevent access to quality care. In my current practice, about 15% of my clients have OCD. I believe every opportunity to learn and grow enriches my ability to support individuals on their journey towards managing OCD effectively.

Training Description:

My journey into OCD treatment began with training intensives through the Center for Anxiety & Behavior Therapy. This specialization reached new heights with acceptance into the renowned IOCDF Behavior Therapy Training Institute (BTTI) in May of 2023. Afterwards, I was afforded the opportunity to participate in an OCD consultation group led by a leading OCD researcher who is a member of the IOCDF Scientific Advisory Board. I have been trained by some of the best and the brightest in OCD treatment world help guide individuals toward freedom from the grips of OCD.

Diversity Statement:

I have an unwavering dedication to cultural sensitivity and inclusivity. I worked almost exclusively with marginalized and economically disadvantaged individuals during my time in community mental health settings. I developed a deep understanding of the intersectionality of identity and mental health. I recognize there is an urgent need for LGTBQIA+ community to have increased allyship to feel safe, seen, and valued throughout their therapeutic journey.

My 17+ years of experience has afforded me the opportunity to work with a wide range of clients with unique cultural identities and perspectives. Within these interactions, I’ve developed a deep appreciation for the importance of cultural identify and nuance. My approach is to meet individuals as they are, where they are. I am committed to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for everyone.
