Panic Disorder, OCD, Anxiety

My Story

Before I ever considered becoming a therapist, I was struggling and looking for help. After spending many years in an industry that left me depleted, I was able to find appropriate treatment for my mental health.  I went through numerous misdiagnoses and spent many hours with well-intentioned therapists before being accurately diagnosed and treated effectively.  Through this process I discovered that I wanted to work in a field where my experience could benefit others.

What You Should Know

From my own experience, I understand how important it is for you to know exactly what I can help you with. I am a skilled and experienced counselor who offers individual and couples counseling, and I have chosen to dedicate my clinical focus to the specialized treatment of OCD, Anxiety & Panic Disorders, BFRBs and Tics. I am trained and experienced in several Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, including Exposure Response Prevention (ERP)Comprehensive Model for Behavioral Treatment (ComB), Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT) for Tics & TouretteDialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing.

What To Expect

I counsel adults and couples using an approach that is tailored to your unique needs. Therefore, the frequency of sessions and techniques used will vary. All appointments are virtual. My purpose is to help you define, map out, and reach your goals. Most importantly, you and I will work together in a safe, welcoming environment where you can explore your feelings and begin to build the life you want.

Where I Practice

I am certified in CO, NJ, MA and FL.
