Jami Socha, PhD
Narrative of Services:
As an anxiety specialist, 100% of my practice is focused on treating individuals with OCD and anxiety disorders. I provide individual outpatient therapy to children and adults, and regularly incorporate family-based treatment for OCD/anxiety. I also provide parent-only treatment focused on helping caregivers reduce accommodating behaviors that serve to maintain OCD symptoms in their child.
I employ evidence-based treatments, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD. I am passionate about helping individuals learn to apply exposure therapy principles, as they learn to manage their symptoms and recognize the value of facing what they fear.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes
I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Michigan, and have over 10 years of experience providing CBT/ERP for OCD and related disorders. I received my doctoral degree from Rosalind Franklin University where my research focused on understanding cognitive mechanisms underlying OCD. I completed my internship and post-doctoral clinical training at the University of Michigan, where I continued to receive specialized training in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure and response prevention (ERP). I have attended the IOCDF Pediatric BTTI, as well as training in the SPACE treatment protocol (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions).
