OCD is in the name of this practice due to the epidemic of individuals with OCD struggling to find proper treatment; however, Dr. Curiel treats many other types of compulsive and anxiety conditions as well (see Conditions tab). This practice consists of pediatric and adult individuals whose primary presenting problem is an Obsessive-Compulsive, Tic, Anxiety Disorder, or PTSD. The individual's neurological, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms are present throughout the day, every day, and are impairing psychological, occupational, and/or social functioning.
Teletherapy Option (online video therapy)
This option is available to individuals in MO, KS, and KY who may not be within driving distance or for those with busy schedules. No commute time needed and one less place to be. Although a private space is required, it can also be more convenient for those that would otherwise require child 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.

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 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.
