About My Clients

My clients come to me to work on their OCD, anxiety, or trauma after talk therapy has not worked for them. Many are also burnt out and want to learn how to manage stress and let go of perfectionistic standards. We will be a great fit if you want to learn skills and engage in evidence-based treatments for these issues. Many clients have described my style as direct, warm, humorous, and authentic. Each person is unique; therefore, I tailor my approach to fit the client's needs and goals.

My Background and Approach

My primary therapeutic orientation relies heavily on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which focuses on willingness, mindfulness, values, and acceptance of internal experiences. I will also incorporate other modern evidence-based treatments, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I am also trained in specialized treatments, including Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Prolonged Exposure (PE) for PTSD, as well as ACT for Chronic Pain and CBT-Insomnia. My treatment approach typically begins with goal setting, psychoeducation, and skill development, followed by further insight to facilitate self-exploration, understanding, and growth. I also supervise other therapists on these techniques and offer their services at a lower cost if you cannot afford my session fee.

Why I Became a Therapist

I became a therapist because I struggled with anxiety and symptoms of OCD for years in my early 20s. When I started my doctoral program, I wanted to learn skills how to help best people struggling with similar issues. I truly understand how scary anxiety and OCD can feel, AND I also know that we can create a different relationship with our thoughts and feelings to find freedom.
