About me

Hi there! 

I treat ocd and related disorders as well as disordered eating concerns. My approach is focused on using exposure response prevention therapy in conjunction with grounding and emotion regulation techniques to help manage and create an approach- based orientation to navigating emotions. 

Training & experience
