Kimberly Brazill is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor specializing in the treatment of Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive and Mood Disorders. She uses evidenced based treatment approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) to assist clients with targeting thoughts and behaviors that are getting in the way of the life that they want to live.
OCD is characterized by recurrent and persistent unwanted thoughts, urges or images that cause distress and can be accompanied by repetitive behaviors a person feels driven to perform in response. In treatment, these thoughts and behaviors are identified and challenged using Exposure and Response Prevention, which is done by exposing yourself to situations that trigger the thoughts and then working to resist the unhelpful behaviors in a structured and manageable way.
Anxiety disorders come in many forms and can range from general fears and worries to fears in social situations and many more. Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention treatment approaches work to identify unhelpful thoughts that perpetuate fears and worries while also targeting unhelpful behaviors.
Often, we don’t experience one single type of symptom at a time. Fear and worry are frequently accompanied by feelings of hopelessness, a low mood and changes in eating and sleeping patterns, among others. Targeting these symptoms is crucial to regaining your sense of self and to improve your ability to feel enjoyment and peace during your day.
