Hope and Help for BFRBs, OCD, and Anxiety since 2006

Home

Anxiety Disorders ARE treatable! I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on identifying and altering problematic thoughts and behaviors. I am like a coach and my patients are like athletes, actively learning and practicing new skills that they can use now and throughout their lives.

Trichotillomania and BFRBs

Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors such as compulsive hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting, and cheek biting are repetitive self-grooming behaviors that cause significant upset and distress and continue in spite of repeated attempts to stop the behavior.

OCD and BDD

OCD is characterized by repetitive thoughts that cause tremendous fear and lead to repetitive behaviors or mental acts in an attempt to lower anxiety. BDD is characterized by repetitive thoughts about one’s appearance and an anxious preoccupation with perceived flaws or defects in particular body parts.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders can include issues such as excessive and uncontrollable worry, repeated panic attacks, fear of embarrassment from having a symptom attack in public, fear of social judgment or ridicule, fear of harm or death to a loved one, fear of vomiting (emetophobia), and fears of heights, elevators, airplanes, bugs, animals, medical procedures, and storms, among others.
