One of the toughest fights you will ever go through is gaining freedom from anxiety and worry. I am happy to be there with you in the struggle because I’ve been there before and know that change is possible. As one who has worked to challenge my own fears and worries, I love to work with others who struggle with anxiety and OCD, encouraging them on their journey to freedom. I approach counseling holistically, incorporating the physical, spiritual, emotional, relational and mental aspects of each individual. How we care for ourselves in one area directly impacts all other areas of life.
I have over 15 years of experience in the counseling field, having worked in Christian counseling centers as well as residential, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment centers, helping adults overcome anxiety and thrive. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), which is empirically proven to be the most effective treatment for OCD and anxiety disorders. One of the reasons I believe ERP is so effective is because it allows you to move beyond just thinking about something to actually doing things differently, and this creates lasting change. I am also trained in EMDR therapy (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and have seen clients with PTSD and developmental trauma heal in amazing ways as they reclaim their lives.
