I am a therapist in Denver specializing in treating adults and teens with anxiety and OCD. I am passionate and excited by the work I get to do with my clients. I was lucky enough to train under some amazing clinicians who worked in settings specifically devoted to anxiety and OCD treatment throughout my doctoral training. Through those experiences, I developed a well-rounded understanding of those disorders, discovered my talent in providing anxiety and OCD treatment, and gained a deep appreciation for how effective anxiety and OCD treatment can be in changing peoples’ lives for the better. For me, there is nothing more rewarding than walking alongside my clients as they connect with their inner-strength and conquer their fears. I also honor that walking alongside my clients is a privilege that requires trust. Developing genuine, meaningful relationships is a core value of mine and is what led me into the field of psychology. I therefore feel extremely fortunate that I get to engage in the process of connecting with and understanding the individuals I work with as they find long-term relief from their suffering.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from The University of Tulsa, where I also played soccer. After graduating, I moved back to my home town of St. Louis, Missouri where I worked for one year as a Case Manager for youth in the foster care system. I then received my Master’s and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Spalding University in Louisville, KY. During my time in Louisville, I completed practice placements at StongMinds Psychology, Community Catholic Center, Indiana University Southeast Counseling and Psychological Services, the Louisville OCD Clinic, and the Kentucky Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders. Lastly, recently I completed my APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship with The University of Denver GSPP Internship Consortium in July of 2020.

When I’m not working, you can find me fishing, camping, golfing, skiing, listening to music, playing guitar, or searching for Denver’s best beer, wings, pizza, and burgers. I am an avid learner of new skills and hobbies, which I have found are never-ending in Colorado. My wife and I moved here in June of 2020 and could not be more in love with what this place has to offer.
