Break Free from Skin Picking

Our personalized online therapy program empowers you to retrain your brain and find freedom from skin picking.

Imagine a world where your behaviors don’t run the show.

You no longer think in limitations, and instead feel free to live life on your terms.

Suffering from skin picking is a constant struggle for control of your body and your life. Therapy is the key to recognizing your triggers and building the tools needed to change your response to them.

You’ve done the research. Now is the time for action.

We created our program to provide everyone with access to therapist-guided Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The most effective treatment for this disorder to date, CBT helps patients develop important tools and strategies for dealing with compulsive behavior.

In just eight sessions, you will set goals and make changes that will allow you to stop picking and start living.

Learn more about how our guided CBT-based program works.

Evidence based therapy that works.

Our program uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you identify skin picking triggers and retrain your brain. CBT is considered the most effective way to treat compulsive skin picking among specialists for the disorder. This therapy is effective because it empowers the patient to develop responsive skills and strategies.

Professional guidance every step of the way.

Your case is unique, and your treatment should be too. We connect you with a personal therapist who will lead you through the program and provide individualized support. Every therapist is trained by the TLC Foundation for BFRBs (body focused repetitive behaviors), and specializes in the treatment of skin picking with cognitive behavioral therapy.

Work and grow from the comfort of your own home.

Your privacy is important. This is a 100% online program, which means that you can participate from wherever you’d like. Nervous about opening up face-to-face with a therapist? Your communication with your therapist is text based via our secure messaging system.

A fraction of the cost of traditional therapy.

We developed this program to make therapy available to everyone. Full access to the program costs the same as roughly 2 hours of traditional therapy. Even better, studies show that online CBT-based therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy.

Meaningful therapy from any device.

The beauty of a 100% online program is that it is built to fit your lifestyle. With no need to schedule sessions or visit a therapist’s office, you can access the program when it’s most convenient. Enjoy compatibility with laptops, smartphones, and tablets.

Client Testimonials

I would sum up this experience as life changing. I learned more than I ever thought I could about my condition and along with that information, I was given the tools to successfully overcome my picking problem. It was extremely beneficial. I would recommend this program to anyone and everyone suffering from this type of behavior. This program is worth every penny and I am so thankful I went through with it. I have taken what I have learned and applied it to not only my picking problem but to several other areas of my life. Because of this program, my life and my outlook on life has improved significantly. I am very grateful for SkinPick and my therapist!
If you'd told me I'd be where I am now back at the beginning I would not have believed you. I have not engaged in serious picking for weeks - perhaps 5-6 weeks- and my hands have healed so that I don't have to hide them and am starting to feel normal. I still notice strong urges when under stress and am aware I have not been tested more seriously, but I am applying the strategies daily and am overcoming the urge to pick - even leaving loose pickable skin alone. I could not have done this without the CBT program and am very grateful.
This program has equipped me with several tools that I can use not only to decrease the amount of skin picking that I do, but also to become aware of and address the triggers that lead up to the skin picking. I love that this program focuses on changing the way you process your thoughts and instructs you on how to reframe them as well as focusing on the actual physical behavior. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who struggles with skin picking or similar behaviors. I have tried so many other things and I am happy to have finally found a program that helps now and will continue to help me for a long time to come.

Latest Client Reviews

When asking our clients for feedback, we ask these two questions:

  1. How do you sum up your experience with the program?
  2. Would you recommend it to others who suffer from excoriation disorder?

Here are the replies we get:

The program gave me multiple tools to not only help prevent me from picking, but to also understand why I do and how to address the underlying issues causing the picking. Because it was multifaceted in this way, I found it very helpful. In the past, I tried individual tips and tricks that were unsuccessful in the long run because they didn't approach the problem as a whole, but rather just tried to suppress it. For this reason, I would highly recommend the program to anyone struggling with skin picking/hair pulling/nail biting, etc.

I have loved this program. The results have been amazing. The best part is not just using distractions or medication to stop the problem, but really understanding the reason behind it. The best thing I learned was that picking is not my problem, it is how I am reacting to my feelings. For so long, I was so defeated because I wanted to STOP picking. I felt like a failure, and the cycle continued. By working with my therapist, we both recognized things in my life that triggered this behavior and how it became far more than a habit, but a coping mechanism. My therapist has been so helpful and understanding. I did not feel judged by this “embarrassing” process. I felt supported and learned so much about myself and who I want to be through my core values. I have still more to do, but I am celebrating the continual improvement I feel. This course has been a life changer for me. Thank you and my therapist for helping me get back to the real me. I would definitely recommend this course. I have been surprised as I have opened up about this process, that many others have the same concerns with skin picking. I have referred them right away to This program helps you commit to a new life and to forgive yourself for the old person you were. It truly is amazing!

I've been picking for over 30 years, and I haven't ever had success in substantially changing my picking behavior before this program. I've been to therapy and done online programs before without much result. I think the weekly writing exercises, coupled with therapist feedback were really helpful for me. The combination of values-based thinking exercises, mindfulness, and CBT strategies added up to a real change over the two month period. I pick so much less today and I don't feel any longer like I don't have control over my behavior. Thank you so much for your help--it's made a huge difference for me. And, the exercises we went through have also improved my life more broadly speaking. I would highly recommend this program to anyone dealing with skin-picking. It was really beneficial for me and I learned a lot of new strategies for dealing with picking and anxiety more generally. This program helped me more than any other treatment has, and I have tried so many. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

The way this program helped me to gain more cognizance of my skin picking issues was invaluable. I now possess the necessary confidence going forward to resist my urges to pick. I have made amazing strides since beginning the course. My skin is the clearest it has been in years! I would absolutely recommend SkinPick to other sufferers. I now realize how in control of my actions I am.

A word from one of our clients

I have recommended this program to three estheticians. I hope that they will share it with people who compulsively pick. I think that many people suffer from this behavior privately and feel a great deal of shame about it. I want to tell them there is help available which is both accessible and affordable. Sharing this information with others has been helpful to me, reducing shame and cultivating willingness to openly acknowledge and address the behavior. I started this program because I was hurting. This program and the therapist brought healing, understanding, and compassion for my own suffering and that of others. There is a way to end the suffering caused by skin picking. I hope others will discover it and give themselves the gift of healing, self-forgiveness, and constructive action that can be found through this program. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Traditional therapy costs around $150 for a single session.

SkinPick offers unlimited access to your therapist over the course of the program for less than the price of two traditional visits.
