My Approach

I utilize a warm, engaging, compassionate approach to help clients develop strategies and skills to overcome a variety of difficulties. I use a client's existing strengths to support them in developing solutions that fit their needs and their lifestyles. I am deeply invested in the use of therapy techniques that have been shown by research to be effective, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), to help individuals achieve lasting outcomes.

I enjoy working with children ages 5 and up, teens, and adults. I am able to provide individual outpatient psychotherapy services.

I provide video and phone therapy.


I have worked successfully with people experiencing many types of struggles and difficulties.

I specialize in working with people who have:

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

  • Anxiety

  • Phobias

  • Trauma

  • Depression

  • Tourette Syndrome/tics

I use evidence-based approaches including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD, the Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT), and the Comprehensive Model for Behavioral Treatment (ComB)/Habit Reversal for Trichotillomania.
