Looking for professional resources? The Misophonia Association is pleased to share this Provider Directory.
Research is ongoing and real progress is being made, but there is currently no diagnosis or treatment for misophonia and there is currently no scientifically proven cure for misophonia.
There are, however, some tools and coping skills to help manage misophonia; approaches that reduce its perceived intensity, omnipresence, and burden. Our Provider Directory below lists providers who can offer tools and coping skills for those with misophonia.
The Misophonia Association does not endorse or recommend any specific misophonia treatments or providers. The Misophonia Association is providing information on our website, for self-help purposes only and to assist in finding a local provider for treatment. Any links that have been provided are for your convenience and for informational purposes only; this does not constitute an endorsement or approval by the Misophonia Association.
NOTE TO PROSPECTIVE PROVIDERS:
If you have an interest in being listed in our Provider Directory, please send an email and tell us about your experience and background in treating misophonia. If approved, we will be happy to include you in our directory. Please send your email to Dr. Marsha Johnson at: firstname.lastname@example.org
(The fee for a three-year listing is only $100).
Caroline Burdett, Limitless Expansion
As there is no known cure for Misophonia, I take a harm reduction, mindfulness based, and experimental approach to treatment. If there is no know immediate cure, there can still be relief. I work with clients to identify the areas of life most impacted by Misophonia and implement interventions to relieve the suffering. These interventions can involve audiological tools, lifestyle adjustments, conflict management and communication coaching, as well as more experimental exploration including novel treatments such as psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. In New York, I offer Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). For out of state clients, I work as a coach and help you identify resources in your area and assist with preparation and integration.
I have seen these results in my patients:
A deeper understanding of internal and external boundaries, a reduction in shame around having Misophonia (a greater acceptance of what is), stronger self- advocacy skills around Misophonia related interpersonal challenges.
I also have Misophonia so I know on a deeply personal level the struggle and the suffering you are facing. No matter the issue at hand, healing always begins with acceptance. Acceptance doesn't not mean that you like it or would ever choose it, but it is an acknowledgement of what IS. Finding acceptance for something like Misophonia can seem counterproductive and impossible, especially when you are searching for treatment. Acceptance is the first step toward managing your Misophonia and helping others in your life come to accept it as well. Acceptance is not the only step though! There is hope for you if you suffer from Misophonia. I am here to help you find relief.

BLOOM MENTAL HEALTH
Do certain "normal" sounds really bother you? Chewing, pens clicking, dogs barking, mechanical rattles, and other daily noises...for those suffering from misophonia, sounds often perceived as background noise to others can seem incredibly heightened or cause an involuntary response of feeling anxious or even angry.
At our practice we feel strongly that those suffering from these symptoms should have treatment options and a greater understanding of the neuroscience behind their condition. As proud members of the Misophonia Association and one of the only practices in the country specializing in the treatment of misophonia, we strive to bring greater awareness to this condition as well as evidenced based treatment options for those suffering from it.
We can provide diagnostic assessments, as well as treatment with medications, natural supplements, and education regarding further therapy treatment options. We also regularly treat co-occurring psychiatric conditions such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, and OCD.
We treat both children and adults with this disorder.
We are located in Littleton, Colorado, but we serve clients all across the state! As a comprehensive psychiatric treatment center, we can also treat co-existing diagnoses such as anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, and more. Visit our website for more information.

Approach: Trained in Existential Psychotherapy at USC, I have adapted my work to include CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). I have developed my own unique blend of these therapies, along with incorporating creative arts, humor, and storytelling. I have seen hundreds of child, teen, and adult patients struggling with misophonia, and receive calls from across the country and even abroad. I work collaboratively with audiologists nationwide to provide the best treatment possible. I have been involved with all of the Misophonia Association conventions for patients and families and have done presentations for other professionals to inform and educate them about misophonia.
Credentials: California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with a doctoral degree and more than 40 years helping people deal with the medical and other challenges of their lives.
Approach: Full evaluation including audiogram, Tympanogram, acoustic reflexes, DPOAE, MCL, UCL, LDL, medical history, various misophonia questionnaires, and family questionnaires. Discussion of management strategies including sound therapy, educational counseling, relaxation exercises, thought restructuring, and consult with CBT therapist. Prescription of sound generators when applicable. Follow-up appointments as needed to chart progress.
Many of my patients have experienced significant relief: some mild relief, some moderate, some extensive relief. I don’t have any metrics to share at this time.
I truly care about helping patients with misophonia. I have misophonia myself, so I have empathy. I belief relief can be had via a combination of management strategies. True- there is no cure yet. However, management strategies significantly improve quality of life.
APPROACH: Counseling with patient and family members. Provide options for sound therapy. I will also connect them with a psychologist if they do not already have one.
I see patients aged 5 years and older. I work with individuals who experience hearing loss, tinnitus, hyperacusis, misophonia and auditory processing disorders.
