About My Clients
If you are an adult, college student, or a teen suffering from OCD, I would love to hear from you! I specialize in treating OCD, and I am especially skilled in treating “rumination as a compulsion”—mental compulsions that are not visible to anyone else. You've come to the right place!
My Background and Approach
I offer Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP), Inference-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (I-CBT), and Metacognitive Therapy (MCT)—all of which are scientifically effective in treating OCD. I am very excited to bring Inference-based Therapy (I-CBT) to my clients. It has been described as profound and a “game-changer." Although this compassionate and effective psychotherapy is offered only by a very limited number of OCD psychotherapists in the United States, and even fewer in Washington state, it has helped people recover from OCD for over 20 years in various parts of the world, including Canada and Europe. Finally, we have science-backed options that target what so many others miss! Exposures aren’t necessary... but they are optional.
More About the People I Treat
Together, we can explore what gives you the best results. Deciding you are ready for change is a big step, and our work together will include mutual dedication and engagement. You deserve to experience life without obsessional doubt, and it's my passion to help you get there! I most frequently treat OCD's tormenting doubts relating to harm and violence: "What if I harm/harmed them?" "What if I harm myself?" "What if I can't remember?" "What if I was inappropriate?" "What if I lose/lost control?" My personal lived experience and recovery from OCD help me to support others with understanding and non-judgment. I look forward to joining you in your recovery from OCD. It is possible, and there is hope!
