Effective Treatment for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Cognitive-Behavioral / Exposure-Response Prevention Therapy
Michael Soderstrom, M.A., LPC-S provides a caring and compassionate, confidential environment that begins by nurturing the client, building on strengths, and increasing life satisfaction from the first minute of the initial consultation. Michael is a current member of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF). Michael is a certified graduate of the IOCDF Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Treatment Institute taught by the top researchers and professionals in the world. This treatment is proven by research to be the most effective treatment for OCD. Research shows that CBT/ERP, on average, can reduce symptoms of OCD by 60-70%. Michael treats Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and other anxiety disorders such as Social Phobia, Hypochondriasis, Panic Attacks, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Trichotillomania, and phobias.

I am now presenting a seminar for parents of children with OCD titled "Surviving Your Child's Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): The Seminar No Parent Should Miss!"
