Only a couple of years ago, I was right where you are. Just like you, I wanted to get rid of my scary thoughts. I had a lot of research and clinical experience under my belt. Then I had an intrusive thought that made me feel like my brain broke.
I'm here with over 16 years of clinical, research, and now personal experience to tell you everything I know about OCD, anxiety, and how to get your life back using evidence based concepts like Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
I've learned from world-renowned experts in how to help people overcome tricky recovery barriers. I can help you understand and improve difficulties like mental compulsions, difficulty tolerating uncertainty, your anxiety or obsessive theme bouncing around like "whack a mole", and so much more, so that you can be more present in every day life.
I have years of experience specifically working with complex cases. Mental compulsions, treatment resistance, rumination, perfectionism of treatment, comorbid conditions - these are just some of the nuances I love to work with and would love to help you understand more - whether you're someone with OCD and anxiety, a loved one, or a professional.
Loving hard on my son, Eli, my husband, Nick, and my two dogs, Asic and Emmett.

Teaching these concepts in a way that's relatable, helpful, "no BS", and motivating.
