My Specializations

I have specialized training in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), a type of psychotherapy with scientific support for improving symptoms of many fear-based conditions, including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), hoarding disorder, and anxiety disorders. My approach to treatment is systematic and goal-oriented. In the first phase of our work together, I will start by getting to know you, helping you develop goals, and assessing for any psychiatric conditions that may be affecting your ability to meet those goals. Then we will discuss your treatment options and what personalized treatment might look like for you.
