Looking for professional resources? The Misophonia Association is pleased to share this provider directory.
Please note: there is currently no scientifically proven cure for misophonia. Research is ongoing and real progress is being made, but there is currently no diagnosis or treatment for misophonia.
There are, however, some tools and coping skills to help manage misophonia; approaches that reduce its perceived intensity, omnipresence, and burden. Below is a list of providers offering tools or coping skills for those with misophonia.
The Misophonia Association does not endorse or recommend any specific misophonia treatments or providers.
Note to providers: if you would like to be listed, please contact us for details.
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: Sound retraining approach. We have a group of patients who do not mind hearing their trigger sounds without any help. One of them posted his review several months before he graduated from our program as “Dr. Mamiya is very gentle and kind. She even communicates via email. She offers a misophonia treatment plan for sufferers of misophonia that is working. Also has hot tea, cold water and a very comfy waiting room. A++”
PAC Audiology is a private Audiology clinic. We provide hearing and balance evaluation, hearing aids, hearing aid repair, tinnitus, misophonia, hyperacusis assessment and retraining therapy, and custom earplugs.
Approach: I offer diagnostic, psychotherapy, supportive, and advocacy interventions for individuals and families coping with Misophonia. My therapy approaches for misophonia and related stress/anxiety management are informed by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I use a multidisciplinary approach with neurologists, audiologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, medical doctors, and other members of a client's treatment team. In terms of advocacy, I offer education to clients, families, and school personnel as needed and support individuals seeking accommodations in the school or work settings.
Primarily the clients with Misophonia who I have seen over the years report that it is most helpful and relieving to have someone validate that what they are experiencing is a "real thing" and that they are not crazy. Similarly, many clients report great value in educating family members and seeking school and workplace accommodations that offer some relief across settings.

Dr. Land is always searching professional literature for the most current research and information regarding Misophonia, hyperacusis and other sound sensitivities. She is focused on finding the best therapies to help her patients live easier, more engaged lives.
Testimonial #1: It has been hard work and a commitment, but overcoming most of my misophonia has given me my life and hope back. The sound generators, combined with counseling, have given me the tools to cope successfully and function in everyday society without issue. Things that once paralyzed me are now merely background sounds I often don’t notice. Fifteen years of misophonia — I thought I would never be free, and now I am!
Testimonial #2: Two years ago I was extremely limited and handicapped regarding daily activates. I had severe migraines and was diagnosed with severe hyperacusis. I had two hearing tests at other facilities, which were painful, causes excessive anxiety, exhausting, and caused migraines. Dr. Paula Land’s tests were gentle and I felt safe with her. It only took one year and I had my life back completely! During this past year, the 2nd year, I have thoroughly enjoyed my life! She is a blessing from God. She is worth 6 hours of driving!
