I specialize in providing empirically-supported treatments for older adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety. I developed an interest in understanding anxiety in general while working in community mental health and hospital settings (Santa Rosa VA). My interest continued through my internship and fellowship at Kaiser San Diego and Richmond respectively, where I facilitated several anxiety groups and continue to work individually with these clients. After providing therapy for a wide range of psychological disorders in hospital settings, community agencies, I continue to be excited to offer my clinical services treating anxiety in general, and OCD and PTSD in particular as a private practitioner. When treating anxiety, I conduct exposure therapies, specifically Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD, prolonged exposure for PTSD, interoceptive exposure for panic disorder, and exposure in general for specific phobias and social phobia.
