The ultimate goal in my Private Practice is to help people achieve the best lives they can live each and every day! When people begin to learn how to squash the OCD & Anxiety by using the tools and techniques I have taught them during our sessions they will often begin to feel "free" again. Freedom from their thoughts, worries and/or compulsions is a wonderful and exciting experience! It often times leaves a person feeling "New Hope" about getting better and to be able to live their life without OCD and Anxiety. For many people who suffer from different types of Anxiety Disorders they feel like their brain and their thoughts are just torturing themselves. But there is no need for anyone to continue to suffer, because on a positive and realistic note and from what research had provided us along with how I see my patients get better...OCD and Anxiety can be beaten! It is an amazing experience to see my patients learn how to be in control over their Anxiety and OCD.

I believe the first step in helping a person with issues related to anxiety is to educate them about the different types of Anxiety Disorders and teach them the steps they need to learn to overcome their fears so they can live a happier and fulfilling life. Knowing that you have the tools needed in your tool chest to overcome future anxiety in itself eliminates much of the anxiety.
Working with and helping people overcome their anxiety is almost all I do in my Private Practice.
