About My Clients
Choosing such a vulnerable endeavor as therapy is not for the faint of heart. It is an act of trust and hope that things can get better. I honor the courage in you to feel rooted and expansive in your authenticity. Through our work together, you’ll better understand your experience of OCD, BFRBs, hoarding and anxiety. You will learn specific ways you can improve your ability to navigate fears on a day-to-day basis that you can use for the rest of your life.
My Background and Approach
My clinical approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and is informed by an anti-oppressive/anti-racist and pro queer/LGBTQ+ approach with a focus on my client’s strengths. I was trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), the gold-standard treatment for OCD, during my first year of my PsyD program. Since then, I've pursued extensive training in ERP, including a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University on the OCD and Related Disorders track. I’ve had the privilege to be involved in creating and implementing clinical trial studies for OCD and Hoarding at both Columbia University and Stanford University. Additionally, I am a graduate of TLC Foundation for BFRB Professional Training Program. After my postdoctoral fellowship, I traveled to India for yoga teacher training. I'm a certified yoga teacher and am passionate about exploring the intersections of therapy and embodiment practices.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
The clients I work with are diverse. I often integrate the science and art of mind-body practices as an addition to therapy. Strengthening your ability to choose how you want to live your life is a core part of my approach. I offer offer evidenced-based therapy for people experiencing all different types of anxiety and want to feel more free and confident. I believe healing is holistic in nature. Along with providing you gold-standard treatment, I value assisting you in deepening the connection with your mind, body, and heart.
