My style is non-judgmental and strength-based while aiming to attain positive changes in your life or your child’s life. Together we will identify goals to work on during and in between therapy sessions. We will measure progress towards the goals set every week so you will know when therapy is working.
The modality I use for treating OCD clients has been designed by the International OCD Foundation. Using the most proven effective methods, I treat OCD and other anxiety disorders here locally in Provo, Utah. Treatment includes the Assessment, Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and homework for relapse prevention.
Treatment and what to expect: CBT is a well-established and highly effective treatment for anxiety disorders. It focuses on noticing your thought patterns, behaviors, and feelings associated with anxiety. You will maintain a thought record in order to help you more accurately evaluate situations in your daily life. You will learn to identify your negative thoughts or thinking errors, challenge them, and replace them with alternative, realistic ones. Along with other cognitive interventions, you will learn how to implement relaxation training, imagery, and behavioral skills to help decrease your anxiety. This is a “being in the present and doing” type of therapy. You can choose to do home assignments in order to learn the skills taught during sessions.
