Abraham Kou, LPC, CAADC
Narrative of Services:
I specialize in the outpatient treatment of PTSD, OCD, and substance abuse. Treatment begins with a thorough individualized screening and assessment with tools like the OCI and the Y-BOCS. Following this, we will begin to log and better understand your unique compulsions. Using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP, an effective evidence-based behavioral treatment for OCD), we will engage in live and imagined exposures to help you confront your fears and learn to live life without engaging in problematic compulsions.
I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor in Pennsylvania. I was originally trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) through the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety at the University of Pennsylvania.
I’m also an internationally certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist who can help reduce discomfort tied to traumatic events that might have brought on or intensified your OCD.
