I specialize in anxiety disorders, PTSD, phobias, and OCD. I employ cognitive and exposure-based interventions including COMB and ER/P, for generalized anxiety, social anxiety, specific phobias, OCD, and body-focused repetitive disorders (BFRBs). I use only the "gold standard" evidence-based treatment for these disorders, including ERP, prolonged exposure (PE)therapy and CPT for PTSD, CBTi for insomnia. I am a military spouse and was a military dependent.

You take care of so many responsibilities to your family, your community, your country, but are you taking care of you? You’ve been thinking for a while now about taking care of the stress and anxiety that gets in the way of your happiness, but you keep putting it off, because you’re too busy. Maybe you’ve even thought of it as you lay awake at night, waiting for sleep to come. If you're taking care of so many others, then you already have the ability to solve your problems. Stop putting it off. You deserve to have your best life, instead of your stressed life. Commit to making your life a little easier, and a little less stressed.
