Treatment methods

Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, and EMDR


I treat children as well as adults and adolescents. With children, my work includes parental consultations. I treat anxiety disorders including obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). I use behavior therapy, exposure and response prevention (ERP), cognitive behavior therapy, EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), and hypnosis. I treat hair pulling (trichotillomania) and skin picking. I refer to psychiatrists for medication if it seems appropriate. I also treat depression, ADHD, and learning disabilities, as well as sexual addiction and compulsive spending.
