REPLACE THE CONFINEMENTS OF CERTAINTY WITH THE FREEDOM OF UNCERTAINTY
OCD is in the name of this practice due to the epidemic of individuals with OCD struggling to find proper diagnosis and treatment; however, Dr. Curiel treats many other types of compulsive and anxiety conditions as well (see Conditions tab). Patients include pediatric and adult individuals whose primary presenting problems are Obsessive-Compulsive, Tic, Anxiety, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders. These conditions appear more like anxious (long-term, stable) traits that are a primary focus every day, rather than anxious (short-term, temporary) states that arise on occasion. The individual's neurological, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms often impair psychological, occupational, and/or social functioning.
Teletherapy Option (online video therapy)
This service was available before Covid and will be available during and after, as long as needed. This option is available to individuals in MO, KS, and KY who may not be within driving distance or for those with busy schedules. It is also nice for those who love convenience; there is no commute time needed, no traffic, and one less place to be in your schedule. Although a private space is required, teletherapy can also be more convenient for those that would otherwise require child care to make an in-office appointment.
Traditional Outpatient (one individual therapy session per week) and
Informal Intensive Outpatient (two or more individual sessions per week) are offered within a private practice setting.
One-time Skills Consultation - Typically reserved for those in rural settings where access to care is limited and a home visit is beneficial (e.g. hoarding). This service is NOT psychotherapy.

The therapy for OCD, as well as the therapies for Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders (e.g. BFRBs), Tic Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, and PTSD, entail Cognitive-Behavioral and Exposure Therapy approaches supported by research as the gold-standards of care. Supplemental interventions and skills are also implemented from Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Treatment is thorough, tailored, educational, skills-based, and action-oriented. Sessions go way beyond just talking and Dr. Curiel has so much to share with you.
