You're here because obsessive thoughts and compulsions are getting in the way of living your life. These may be as a result of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or how your disordered eating pattern is operating.
Living life more aligned with your values versus your fears, and healing from these challenges is possible.
I use the most effective treatments for OCD, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), to help people overcome their obsessions and compulsions. I will work with you and your team to enhance treatment.
Together, we will create an environment where you can explore your fears, face them and learn that you can handle uncertainty.
What does working together look like?
Great question! I used to wonder the same thing myself.
I got into exposure coaching as I felt that the traditional 'meal support' techniques I learned as an eating disorder dietitian did not cut it. Clients would still struggle with rumination, avoidance or compulsions after meal support exposures, even clients without a diagnosis of OCD.
The need to figure out another approach led me to ERP and exposure coaching. Now, I see clients both outside of (along with the client's team) and within my role as a nutrition therapist/dietitian.
During sessions, you can expect to:
- Understand how much your compulsions and obsessions are interfering with your life
- Determine what behaviors or thoughts want to target through exposure coaching
- Learn how to sit with uncomfortable feelings during exposures, as we go at your pace
- Respond to exposures without engaging in avoidance or more compulsions
- Build resilience that allows you to handle uncertainty
- Identify values and make choices aligned with them
Over the years, I have gained training from experts in the field and continue to engage in regular supervision on OCD and conferences.
50 minute exposure coaching/meal support: $150/120 Euros
30 minute exposure coaching/meal support: $80/60 Euros
Costs include time for consultation with other providers you may be seeing, email and text support between sessions, actionable resources and tools, and correspondence.
I can see clients in Europe and the US.
Exposure coaching is not covered by insurance in the US or in Europe.
I base costs on cost of living, credit card processing fees, average cost of services in the geographic area of the client, my professional expertise and experience, and my business costs.
