Family Member Quotes

“Carla came into our lives when my daughter’s OCD was very bad. Carla walked into my house with a warm smile. She is kind and very sharp…and she is no joke when it comes down to getting to work. The ERP (Exposure Response Prevention) work she did with my daughter started to untangle OCD’s vice grip. We saw proof and trusted Carla right away. She is very passionate about people and wants to help. As a mom I will always be thankful that someone as talented as Carla came into our lives.”

“Carla specializes in anxiety and OCD. My daughter had tried therapists that listed anxiety/OCD as one of many things they treated but once we found Carla who specializes in anxiety/OCD we felt her level of understanding of what our daughter was going through was what we were looking for. My daughter still struggles but we feel she is on the right track now and she has found Carla easy to talk to.”

Client Quote

“There are no words to describe the help I have received from Carla. She helped me face very distressing OCD symptoms successfully and I will be forever grateful.”
