Stacy Shaup, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

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



Dr. Shaup specializes in providing treatment for these conditions:

  • Trichotillomania (Hair Pulling Disorder)
  • Excoriation (Skin Picking) Disorder
  • Other Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs) such as Nail Biting and Cheek Biting
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)
  • Panic Disorder
  • Agoraphobia
  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Perfectionism
  • Specific Phobias such as Fears of Vomiting, Heights, Elevators, Bridges, Bugs, Animals, Medical Procedures, etc.

To treat BFRBs like hair pulling and skin picking, Dr. Shaup utilizes Comprehensive Behavioral (ComB) treatment, a specialized form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). It involves conducting a comprehensive assessment of a person’s individualized patterns of pulling or picking (or other behavior related to their BFRB). She evaluates the behavioral, environmental, sensory, motor, social, and cognitive factors and triggers for the BFRB behavior in order to create a specialized and unique treatment plan with specific strategies to combat the BFRB habits directly.

For OCD, BDD, and Anxiety Disorders, Dr. Shaup utilizes Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to address problematic and anxiety-provoking thoughts and behaviors that help perpetuate the anxiety cycle. Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP) can be used as a key CBT treatment strategy to address the excessive and distressing anxiety symptoms associated with these disorders.  Dr. Shaup also offers treatment using Inference-Based Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (I-CBT), an approach that focuses on cognitive changes in therapy. I-CBT is an evidence-based treatment for OCD and research shows it is as effective as ERP for OCD. (See https://icbt.online/what-is-icbt/ for further information on I-CBT).
