Experience in treating OCD
Before joining NOCD, I worked at a treatment and coaching program in Los Angeles that focused on helping people deal with OCD, which was my first introduction to Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy. Since receiving my practicing license, I’ve been working specifically with OCD cases. It’s great to see people’s courage develop as they get better using ERP. It’s an incredibly effective treatment for OCD, and I can’t wait to work with you and help you get better.
About
As a therapist, I value being authentic, genuine and compassionate. I take a science-driven approach, but I think of myself as a knowledgeable, supportive coach—even a cheerleader. I will help you understand how your OCD works and the cycles that keep you stuck. I will help you become your own therapist. Outside of work, I love spending time with my dog. We're currently doing dog training.
