Rise. Heal. Be Empowered.

You don't have to settle for a life limited by anxiety.

                                                           

 

Hi, I'm Sandra, a licensed therapist and specialist for OCD & Anxiety.

I saw my first case of "Pure O" in 2005. Since then,

I have been passionate about helping clients recover from

OCD and Anxiety disorders. I have been trained by the

International OCD Foundation and opened my private

practice in 2007. OCD and anxiety disorders are highly

treatable with specific types of therapy modalities such

as ERP, CBT and ACT. I may use supplemental treatments 

such as Rumination-Focused ERP, Hypnotherapy

and Mega Cognitive Therapy based on individual needs.

What I know is that it is hard to treat OCD on your own.

OCD and anxiety need to be saturated in order to

dismantle the disorder.

 

That's why my sessions include a gratis 15-minute

mid-session phone call, to keep the progress going.

 

Using this approach often reduces the time of treatment

and you can get better, faster.

Seeing a private specialist who can provide more

personalized care helps you to level up your treatment.

In the long run, you can save time and money.
