Clinical Social Worker in Urbandale, IA
Anxiety is often experienced as a component of depression, but it can also be a singular diagnosis. Anxiety usually responds well using CBT, but sometimes needs specialized treatment when it presents as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. OCD behaviors and thoughts can be extremely distressing and disruptive to a persons’ mental health. Exposure Response Treatment is a very effective protocol I have used to help clients free themselves from the chains of OCD.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the best treatment for depression according to all research. This approach focuses on changing our thoughts in order to change our feelings and thus changing our behaviors. I have extensive experience and training using this treatment to help individuals improve their moods and become happier with their lives.
I am trained in an evidence based treatment called CBT-I. This protocol is based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and is shown to be very effective in treating insomnia.
