Halina Dour PhD
I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in treating anxiety and anxiety-related disorders, including OCD, panic, social anxiety, and PTSD. Additional co-occurring conditions that I treat are body dysmorphic disorder, binge eating, skin picking, hair pulling, and depression. The majority of my practice is devoted to treating clients with these mental health conditions, with about half of my caseload being devoted to treating OCD. I work with clients to help them meet their mental health goals through an active and compassionate approach. All services I offer are evidence-based, time-limited, and skills-based, such as ERP, ACT, CBT, and other exposure therapies.
Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:
I specialize in treating anxiety and anxiety-related disorders (e.g., OCD, PTSD, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder) using evidence-based therapies, including exposure therapy, exposure and response prevention (ERP), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Additional co-occurring disorders that I treat are body dysmorphic disorder, binge eating disorder, skin picking, hair pulling disorder, and depressive disorders. In all of these treatments, I work to help clients meet their mental health goals through an active and compassionate approach.
I acquired an expertise in anxiety and related disorders following training by leading experts and after developing years of experience. My practice, The Center For Genuine Growth, offers telehealth therapy in FL and WA. I am the co-creator of the Positive Affect Treatment for anhedonia in the Treatments That Work series; I also have served as a consultant on multiple treatment development projects. My experience over the past decade spans across various settings, including veterans hospitals, where I served as an Eating Disorder Team Coordinator and a member of a PTSD team, Intensive Outpatient Program, and Mental Health Clinic.
I work with adult clients of any age, race, size, background, or identity. I do not judge or discriminate based on a client’s set of beliefs, cultural or religious practices, or background. I work to help clients of all types meet their treatment goals.
