In therapy, I help family members through the process from early signs or symptoms, through diagnosis, and all stages of the disease.
I provide goal-oriented therapy to individuals, couples, and families on a wide variety of issues.
Some of these issues may include: Self-esteem, Relationship challenges, Life cycle transitions, Depressive symptoms, Persistent negative self talk, and Grief & bereavement.
The treatment modality I most often use for OCD is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), with a strong emphasis on Exposure Response Prevention (ERP).
