Miyo Okajima, MS
The clinic offers short 15-20 minute CBT sessions. 90% of my patients have OCD or OC related disorders. 30% of them have comorbid ASD. The counseling office has been offering 8 hours of group therapy once a month with a small group of patients, but this has now been interrupted due to COVID19. In addition, 3/4 of the therapy in the counseling office is online counseling by Zoom.
Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:
Behavioral therapy for patients who have become manic due to SSRI side effects, cognitive behavioral therapy to improve depression due to ruminative thinking, etc.
I counsel 70 OCD patients per week in a mental health clinic covered by health insurance. I also counsel over 50 OCD patients per week in my own counseling office with other counselors. I am a licensed Professional Behavioral Therapist certified by the Japanese Association for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy and have been providing specialized treatment for OCD for over 20 years. I am also a certified trainer of Motivational Interviewing.
I have counseled with Americans online with an interpreter.
