Shanda Curiel, PsyD
Owner, Allay OCD
Narrative of Services:
Many individuals with OCD attempt to achieve perfect thoughts/behaviors to prevent harm, wrongdoing, or discomfort with unhelpful coping, only for perpetual doubt or discomfort to return. Sometimes a baby’s arrival can prompt mothers and fathers to experience excessive safety fears. ERP helps allay symptoms. Let’s replace the confinements of certainty with the freedom of uncertainty so you can welcome life’s quiet moments again.
In addition to OCD, my private practice is devoted to Tic Disorders, BDD, Trichotillomania, & Excoriation. Treatment entails entail assessment, psychoeducation, cognitive and behavioral/exposure interventions, implementing adaptive responses, and/or habituation.
