Stacey Klein, LCSW
Narrative of Services:
OCD is one of my specialties. I use a somatic (mind- body) approach which incorporates aspects of CBT but is primarily based in Gestalt, relational and somatic experiencing therapies and has been very effective in helping people resume more functional living.
I offer an integrative and holistic approach to OCD. I work with people who have tried ERP but have found their OCD returns in a new form or those who have felt ERP was too threatening. I work both in person in Berkeley and provide online psychotherapy to people all around the world
I believe many people with OCD have underlying trauma ranging from medical to early developmental trauma and need a much more trauma informed approach which helps them learn tools for feeling safe in their bodies and emotional regulation skills prior to doing exposure work.
I have published two articles about my approach here: http://eastbayareapsychotherapy.com
I’ve been practicing for over 24 years and have been treating OCD for 10 years both in private practice and in specialty clinics. I have developed my own model for treating OCD.
