Approach: We use a combination of sound therapy and counseling to retrain the reaction to trigger sounds. We also specialize in tinnitus and hyperacusis.
We use pre and post standardized questionnaires to measure progress. Client testimonials are available as well.
Certifications: CCC-A, Licensed Audiologist in NY
APPROACH: As a clinical psychologist, I treat misophonia with a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) which utilizes acceptance-based approaches that help the individual learn how to respond to sound triggers so that they are less aversive and more acceptable. I also directly target the emotional response of anger/rage to enable one to feel greater control over their reactions to triggers. Additionally, I offer to integrate counseling into the treatment for secondary emotional concerns that result from misophonia such as relationship difficulties and/or other life stressors.
I also offer group therapy. It i s an ideal way to engage in an environment that is supportive, collaborative, and therapeutic. I am proud to offer one of the only therapy groups for misophonia in the entire world! This innovative group serves as a place for learning about misophonia, developing more effective ways of handling its symptoms and as a place for people to support each other. Misophonia is very lonely – come and join us!
I use pre/post measures to track progress in therapy.
I also offer my services over telehealth so I treat people over video conference for patients who are out of traveling distance.
