Anxiety impacts us all.  Anxiety becomes problematic when it impacts your ability to function in areas of daily life.  Daily worries can take a toll on your mental and physical health.  When you or a child is suffering with an anxiety disorder it’s important to get help.  Anxiety disorders affect many people of all ages.  An estimated 40 million adult Americans suffer from anxiety disorders. According to the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA), anxiety disorders are now the most common mental health disorders to occur in children, adolescents and adults.  Research also shows that anxiety is rising on U.S. college campuses.  

Anxiety can also co-occur with depression and sleep struggles. Mood disorders and excessive worries can be debilitating and cause people to isolate and avoid; however, seeking support, education and effective coping tools can be empowering and life changing.  Many people can experience meaningful symptom relief and improvement in quality of life.

Welcome to my clinical psychology practice!  My practice focuses on providing specialized therapies to help people who struggle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD) and anxiety disorders. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapies (e.g., exposure and response prevention), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help people get their lives back and feel more confidence.  I view therapy as collaborative and requiring safety, nurturance and trust.  As I see it, the goal of therapy is to help people learn valuable tools to better manage their OCD and/or anxiety and move towards the things they value the most in their lives.  Therapy is hard work but worth the time and energy and can make a lasting difference.     

"One of the inspiring aspects of the therapeutic process is when people feel empowered, less stuck and more psychologically flexible to live the life they want."
