Far too often, people with OCD suffer in silence.
This therapy group will address symptoms of purely obsessional OCD, together with other forms of OCD such as contamination, violent or sexually explicit intrusive thoughts, Clinical Perfectionism and symptoms of OCPD. Clients will receive psychoeducation about the disorders, leading therapies and will engage in a therapeutic treatment.
The group is a great opportunity for clients to establish support with others who can appreciate the daily challenges of this potentially disabling condition.
There comes a time in life when a person realizes she or he needs support and clarification on their life challenges, their crisis, a developmental stage or with something they have been struggling for some time now.
It might be scary to reach out to a professional and I understand that. I am offering a safe, relaxed space, a real experience, where my client will be empowered to work on her/his life trials. I am prepared to give my full attention to my client’s concerns and use my CBT and DBT tools as a flashlight to find the solution. I graduated with distinction with my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Capella University.
My experience includes one year of a direct training in Exposure Ritual Prevention Therapy by Dr. Steven Phillipson, a leading expert on OCD. In addition I worked in a residential substance use treatment where I received experience in crisis counseling, treating clients with trauma, personality disorders, grief counseling, working with LGBTQ individuals and postpartum depression to name few. I am also fluent in Czech and Slovak and I welcome clients from this community.
