I work with...
  • People burdened by mild to severe Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder -- "OCD" ...
  • People who want help and encouragement to prepare or carry out their own self-help program
  • "Washers" & "Cleaners" - those obsessed with various "contamination" and "decontamination" issues
  • "Checkers" - those who excessively check locks, stoves, past activities, etc. to ensure safety
  • "Hoarders" - those who very excessively or irrationally save things and "can't" throw things away
  • "Orderers" - those often compelled to place objects in special patterns - "to set matters right"
  • "Repeaters" - those who repeat specific actions to ward off feared disasters -- illogically
  • "Pure Obsessionals" - those trying to reduce distressing obsessions through repetitive internal arguments
  • "Thinking Ritualizers" - those trying to reduce obsessions via exact specific mental routines
  • Psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors who want to recommend an assistant for their OCD clients
  • Those who have been clinically diagnosed with OCD by a mental health professional
  • Those not clinically diagnosed but know or suspect they have OCD and want to discuss their situation
  • People with OCD who would like moral support and encouragement from someone who's "been there," too
  • People wishing to supplement their OCD medications with clinically proven cognitive-behavior therapy
  • People who desire an alternative to OCD medications (due to side-effects or lack of results)
  • Local clients and those farther away—via phone
  • Coaching Approach/Philosophy
    OCD is tough to beat -- especially by yourself. I'll help you get organized, stay motivated, and take one step at a time to benefit greatly from proven self-help programs developed by leading authorities in modern OCD therapy.
