Specialty treatment for OCD/BDD/BFRBs, anxiety, and misophonia

*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), and anxiety (generalized, social, and panic) usually try to fix their symptoms on their own for months to decades before turning to a professional. At this point, your symptoms might even be getting in the way of the things that are most important to you in life. 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 current research indicates that 1) they are the most effective (or tied for most effective) options we have for these conditions, and 2) they work well for most people (myself included). Before scheduling a call with me, first make sure my policies work for you, as they apply to 100% of incoming clients: I work with adults (18+) located in California, clients have one 50-minute appointment per week (more-frequent sessions are sometimes available; every-other-week or monthly sessions are not available), appointments take place between 10am and 6pm on weekdays, appointments are exclusively by video, I do not take insurance (I do provide superbills), and sessions are $275/hour. If my policies feel like a good fit, you can scroll down to the "Request Appointment" button to schedule a free consultation. If not, here are a few other therapy options: 1. Calling your insurance company (for in-network providers) 2. OCD specialists list: https://bayareaocd.com/referral-list-2 3. International OCD Foundation: https://iocdf.org/find-help/ 4. NOCD (insurance-based): https://www.treatmyocd.com/ 5. Psychology Today: https://www.psychologytoday.com/ ------------------------------------------- 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.
