What is your style/approach to therapy?

Navigating the journey of life often involves rewriting the narratives we construct about our timelines and expectations. As adolescents, we often envision our adult selves with a predetermined timeline, anticipating specific accomplishments by certain ages. However, life is unpredictable, and the reality may not align with our initial projections. As a therapist, I guide individuals in stepping away from rigid timelines and embracing the unfolding process of life. Together, we explore ways to find fulfillment and joy in the journey, even when it deviates from the expected plan. Let's shift our focus from rigid expectations to appreciating the growth, learning, and unique experiences that come with each moment. I specialize in treating OCD, anxiety, and perfectionism through the use of ERP and ACT. My passion lies in helping high-achieving, goal-oriented individuals discover their values and strike a balance between life pursuits and self-discovery. Employing an integrative and trauma-informed approach, I tailor skills and techniques to individual clinical needs, ensuring a personalized therapeutic experience. I hold a unique interest in addressing sexually based/taboo and relationship OCD themes.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

In our sessions, you won't find me silently staring across the room. I'm all about engaging conversations and interactive discussions. Think of our time together as a dynamic exchange, where we dive into your thoughts and feelings with the ease of a friendly chat. Just like pulling examples from your favorite movies or books, I might reference pop culture phenomena to make a point or share a relatable metaphor. We're not confined to a rigid structure; instead, we'll explore your experiences in a way that resonates with you. Let's navigate your journey with a touch of wisdom, a sprinkle of humor, and a whole lot of understanding. After all, therapy is not just about the process; it's about making it uniquely yours.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Recovery isn't about rescuing you from yourself or solving every problem. There's no expectation for you to become an entirely different person, perpetually free from anxiety or completely healed. The essence of recovery lies in adopting a practical approach—a realistic plan that embraces anxiety with flexibility and acceptance. It's about managing discomfort to ease the hold of OCD or perfectionism while honoring your unique experiences, vulnerabilities, and sensitives.
