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: With over 30 years experience in the field of Audiology we have been specializing in the treatment of Misophonia, Tinnitus, Hyperacusis and Hearing Loss since 2006. Our approach for Misophonia is to complete an extensive diagnostic evaluation and Case History. We approach each case uniquely based on the patient’s individual needs. We encourage a combination of Sound Therapy and counseling to retrain negative reactions associated to triggers. We strongly believe in a collaborative approach with other medical providers to assure that the patient receives a clear diagnosis and treatment plan. Our focus is to change the quality of your life so that you can live your best life with Misophonia.

I traveled from Nebraska to come here, in an attempt to find a solution for my Misophonia. Daily sounds prevented me from eating dinner with my family, working easily at a job, and caused me to isolate myself because of the physical and emotional pain that came as a result. This place gave me the only solution that's EVER helped and I can actually rejoin my life again! Being able to eat with my husband or things like that, are the irreplaceable moments of quality time that you take for granted, and I won't ever again. Thank you Colorado Tinnitus and Hearing Center, for changing my life.
I was distraught for my teenage daughter and her Misophonia. I researched and researched until I came across this place on the internet. There was hope finally. These wonderful people changed our lives by listening to us, and finally giving my daughter a diagnosis of Misophonia. My daughter now has little ear pieces that fit into her ear that play white noise so that my daughter can actually enjoy life again instead of worrying about her triggers. Her triggers were my husbands breathing, babies crying, and many other things. Dr. Patty was awesome and completely worked with us financially, emotionally, and gave us a ton of resources for Misophonia. I can NEVER repay these woman for changing our lives but most importantly for changing my daughters live, where she feels life is worth living again. Shout out to receptionist Amy for calming all my fears about a long drive to Denver and for helping me through this process. Thank you ladies again for changing our world.
