Specialized CBT and Exposure Therapy
With a core focus on OCD and Anxiety (95% of clients), specialized training and experience provides finely-tuned CBT and Exposure Therapy for positive outcomes. Happy to be a first stop for clients to find a good direction, I most commonly hear clients state they have tried other options- to no avail.
Many of my clients tell me they are glad that I’m very involved and engaged– compared to other experiences in therapy where therapists have been “aloof” or not shown them how to take home skills practically. Find out more on the About page to see if my experience and training is a good fit. Check out the following domains to see where I have the most experience.
OCD & Anxiety
OCD, Anxiety, and Related Disorders- there are effective outcomes when sticking closely to the Gold Standard treatment of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In OCD, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is additionally recommended as the first place to start.
If you’re ready to get serious about treatment for OCD and Anxiety and want highly personable care that sees you for the whole person you are, I can’t wait to be of help! I have dedicated my practice to becoming “laser focused” on these domains while also working well with various goals and problems simultaneously. Let’s Get Unstuck.
CBT / Exposure Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a mental health psychological treatment, or psychotherapy. The range of problems it treats is broad, from anxiety and depression to substance abuse and relationship problems. It is considered gold standard treatment for a range of problems. Additionally, a subset within CBT is Exposure Therapy (ET or ERP if applied to OCD), a much overlooked, yet well researched and highly effective approach.
Addiction is complex to understand, involving multiple layers of treatment for success. Having strong assessment along with evidence-based practices in a provider who understands the multi-faceted nature of Addiction is crucial.
General Mental Health
The average client seen in the practice has a “comorbid” diagnosis (two or more). With a broad scope of topics successfully addressed, you will get attentive focus on every area of importance where applicable. Nearly 15 years of clinical expertise has developed keen assessment and shorter term therapy for most.
Faith OVER Feelings and Thoughts.
Christian clients who wish to integrate their faith will receive robust integration into the therapy process, where appropriate. This holistic integration encompasses a deeper dive into not only the biological, psychological, and social, but spiritual aspects of a person, as well.
