Mike Heady LCPC
I provide individual evidence-based treatments for anxiety, OCD, and mood disorders. I offer all forms of exposure therapy including ERP, in vivo, interoceptive, and imaginal, when appropriate. I also offer non-exposure based treatments such as Inference-Based Therapy and Metacognitive Therapy. Approximately 90% of all my clients have OCD or OC-related disorders.
Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:
OCD co-occurs with numerous disorders such as major depression, GAD, social anxiety, and panic disorder to name a few. To address these concerns concurrently with OCD, we look to treat trans-diagnostic processes that perpetuate the disorders. Common trans-diagnostic processes are rumination, positive and negative beliefs about internal private experiences like thoughts, feelings, and sensations as well as avoidance, worrying, and safety behaviors.
I’ve been treating OCD and OC-related disorders for 15-years. I participated in a year-long, post-graduate mentoring program with nationally recognized experts in the field of anxiety and OCD at the Anxiety & Stress Disorders Institute where I am now co-director and co-owner. My treatment modalities are ERP, ACT, and metacognitive approaches. I am on the Faculty of the BTTI and a Clinical Fellow with the ADAA. I have produced numerous professional webinars on OCD and have appeared on numerous podcasts, FB Live events, and run weekly consultations for clinicians.
