Narrative of Services:

The bulk of my practice involves the treatment of OCD and related disorders including generalized anxiety, social anxiety, body dysmorphic disorder, scrupulosity, intrusive thoughts of a taboo or violent nature, phobias including emetophobia, body focused repetitive behaviors including skin picking, hair pulling, and tics. I also work with people who have experienced psychological or emotional trauma, abuse or bullying. I have treated several hundred OCD sufferers over the last seven years. I have recently moved to Florida from California and am offering telehealth services only to California residents only as I transition to Florida licensure.

My clients come from diverse cultural, religious, and socio-economic backgrounds. I am LGBTQI affirming and respectful of my clients’ religious and cultural beliefs.

Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: No
