Specialty treatment for OC disorders, misophonia, anxiety, and depression

*All acronyms spelled out in the services section at the bottom of the page* People with obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD, BDD, BFRBs), misophonia (sound sensitivity), anxiety (generalized, social, and panic), and depression usually try to fix their symptoms on their own for months to decades before seeking out a professional. I didn't enjoy the time between when my symptoms showed up and when I got them treated, and I bet you're not enjoying it either. At this point, your symptoms might even be getting in the way of the things that are most important to you. Let's change that. To get you efficient symptom relief, I use: 1. CBT/ACT with ERP for OCD, BDD, and panic 2. A CBT/ACT-based protocol for misophonia 3. CBT/ACT for anxiety and depression 4. ComB for BFRBs I like these approaches because 1) the research we currently have indicates they are the most effective (or tied for most effective) options we have for treating these conditions, 2) they seem to work quite well for most people who try them, and 3) they worked great for me. Have questions/concerns about these approaches? No problem; we can get them addressed in the consultation call. If you would like a free consultation call, first make sure my policies work for you, as they apply to everyone: I work with adults (18+) located in California, appointments are by video, clients have one standing 50-minute session per week (more-frequent sessions are available if you are seeking faster symptom relief; less-frequent sessions are not currently available), appointments take place between 10am and 6pm on weekdays, I am considered an out-of-network provider with insurance companies (you may wish to learn your insurance company's reimbursement rate for out-of-network behavioral health appointments so you can better predict your true session costs), and sessions are $250/hour. If my practice focus and policies both feel like a fit, go ahead and click the "Request Appointment" button to schedule your free consultation. ------------------------------------------- Required Good Faith Estimate Notice Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
