replace the confinement of certainty with the freedom of uncertainty


Brief Overview


Patient Demographic

Pediatric and Adult individuals whose primary presenting problem is an Obsessive-Compulsive, Tic, or Anxiety Disorder.  The individual's neurological, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms are present throughout the day, every day, and are impairing psychological, occupational, and/or social functioning.




This is preferable for those individuals not within driving distance of the Kansas City area, but still in Missouri or Kansas and in need of specialized care.

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.
