I specialize in treating OCD and anxiety disorders using exposure and response prevention (EXRP). I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist and completed post doctoral training with a renowned OCD expert. My work frequently addresses Generalized Anxiety Disotrder, Panic Disorder, Health Anxiety, Social Anxiety, and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. Additional issues I treat include relationship difficulties, work stress, and general well being improvement.
I am an interactive psychologist and rely on empirically supported treatment methods, including techniques from traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and from Mindfulness and Acceptance based therapies. I often use Exposure and Response Prevention techniques to treat anxiety issues as well as mindfulness skills. Mindfulness skills help clients stay present and make space for uncomfortable thoughts and emotions rather than avoiding, escaping, or undoing them. I have successfully used EXRP to treat OCD and anxiety disorders since 2003. My in-depth understanding of the many presentations of OCD and use of research based methods contributes to my treatment success. I frequently work with clients who present with "Pure-O," a type of OCD where the person's compulsions are not able to be seen by others. I also frequently work with clients whose obsessions reflect topics that are "taboo" in nature.
I work collaboratively with clients to identify and reach their treatment goals. I strive to create a supportive therapeutic relationship where clients can learn techniques to continually work towards their valued life goals. My website is www.drnancymiller.com.
