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.
We are a group psychotherapy practice who serves individuals across the lifespan with various psychological conditions. We have 5 office locations throughout Chicago and the west suburbs but not all providers work at all locations. We are a supportive group of professionals who pride ourselves on providing evidenced-based, caring, and compassionate services.
