I'm a queer and neurodivergent affirming therapist specializing in treating OCD with an anti-oppression approach.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Seattle, WA
Living with OCD is tough enough—my aim is to maintain space for kindness and warmth in your recovery. People with OCD can suffer for an average of 17 years before they connect with a skilled OCD therapist. I want you to have access to effective, up-to-date, science-backed treatments. My practice is neurodiversity and queer affirming. So often our unique ways can be pathologized by other and I am committed to making OCD treatment neurodiversity and LGBTQIA+ affirming. Welcome!
The defining feature of social anxiety disorder, also called social phobia, is intense anxiety or fear of being judged, negatively evaluated, or rejected in a social or performance situation. People with social anxiety disorder may worry about acting or appearing visibly anxious (e.g., blushing, stumbling over words), or being viewed as stupid, awkward, or boring. As a result, they often avoid social or performance situations. We offer effective treatment for social anxiety.
Anxiety is the mind and body's reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unfamiliar situations. It's the sense of uneasiness, distress, or dread you feel before a significant event. A certain level of Anxiety helps us stay alert and aware, but for those suffering from an anxiety disorder, it feels far from normal - it can be completely debilitating. Anxiety disorders usually involve an excessive fear and worrying about a future threat.
