Practice Description:
My practice offers videoconferencing counseling. I am a Distance Certified Counselor and experienced in tele-health. The platform I use is HIPPA compliant to protect your privacy. My practice offers free videoconferencing consultations. In addition, my practice offers two on-line OCD support groups. Sliding scale fees available affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Does anxiety make it difficult to function at work, school, home or social situations? Anxiety disorders affect over 40 million people in the United States. The focus of my practice is the treatment of OCD and anxiety disorders. I help individuals struggling with OCD/anxiety disorders as well as parents, spouses, and families that are also affected. I am a Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and a Certified Cognitive Therapist. I also have extensive training in Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), Mindfulness and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) that are proven to work in the treatment of OCD and Anxiety Disorders.

In a supportive and collaborative environment, I work with patients to beat their OCD, anxiety disorder and associated issues. Often parents, spouses and family members are affected by their loved one's struggles. Parents, spouses, and other family members are often essential to the success of treatment. Parents and spouses are invited to participate in treatment to learn about their loved one's challenges and to how to provide support and encouragement during their child or spouses recovery.

I am passionate about helping people with OCD and Anxiety Disorders. It is rewarding to help patients beat their OCD or Anxiety Disorder people and live a more productive and satisfying life. Please call me if you are ready to overcome your OCD or Anxiety Disorder or if you have any questions about treatment.
