Jill R Stevens, LCPC, MA
Narrative of Services:
My practice is 70% OCD and OCD Spectrum/Related Disorders. I offer CBT, including Exposure and Response Prevention, as well other complementary approaches, depending upon what an individual client is most comfortable with and what is most effective for the individual client’s situation.
I treat co-occurring disorders that include various combinations of OCD, Hoarding Disorder, BFRBs, BDD, Trauma (PTSD), Anxiety Disorders, Major Depression, Bipolar Disorders, and stress related to relationships, work, etc. I integrate varied treatment approaches, depending on what is most effective for the individual’s particular presenting concerns. Family therapy is limited to working with loved ones on ending accommodation.
BFRB, Hoarding Disorder, BDD – CBT and ancillary approaches
I have been providing individual adult psychotherapy for over 25 years, including working with those diagnosed with OCD for 14 years. I have completed BTTI training, also the Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy on OCD, as well as other formal training, read numerous professional and lay books, attended IOCDF Conferences, and am a regular attendee at monthly Midwest OCD Consultation Groups. I am a certified facilitator of the Buried in Treasures workshop for Hoarding Disorder, though I do not currently offer a BIT group.
I am comfortable with and have experience with clients of varied races, nationalities, gender expression, sexual orientations, religious backgrounds, etc. For instance, I have worked well with Buddhists, Muslims, both Progressive and Conservative Christians, Pagans, Wiccans, atheists, and agnostics. I am glad to integrate any individual’s spirituality or philosophy into their treatment. I also have experience working effectively with heterosexuals, lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender individuals, non-binary, and family members or loved ones of all those “categories.”
