My Approach to Helping

Do you feel overwhelmed by intrusive thoughtsimages or unrelenting anxiety? Are you constantly seeking reassurance or performing rituals to feel better? You may be experiencing OCD or an Anxiety disorder. These disorders operate on what we call the Vicious Cycle: 1) encounter trigger or obsessive thoughtimage 2) experience distress 3) engage in compulsions or safety behaviors, which leads to 4) relief. The frustrating part about this cycle is that the relief is short-lived. Before you know it, the intrusive thoughtsimages and compulsions are back, taking up more time and mental resources to cope.

My area of expertise is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). These evidence-based therapies have repeatedly been shown to be effective in treating OCD and Anxiety disorders. I provide individual and family outpatient treatment for those aged 10+, in person and via telehealth (locally and throughout the state of CA).

In addition to OCD and Anxiety-related disorders, I also have extensive experience working with Major Depressive Disorder. Depression can rob you of positive moments, make the simplest of chores feel overwhelming, and change the way you view yourself and your life. I aim to help you get back to the things you love, improve your outlook on life, and help you feel productive once more.

I have been in practice for 5 years and I love helping people navigate through their tough emotions and choices. I understand that therapy is a process and I am excited to go on that journey with you! Feel free to reach out for a complimentary 30-minute consultation.
