Sometimes the degree which one holds is not necessarily indicative of "specialist" status, although the more training and schooling the better in my humble opinion.
As an expert in OCD holding a doctorate in psychology, as well as many years of experience working with this population, I have discovered the clients that enjoy the greatest amount of relief have been open to understanding WHY they are toiling under this problem as well as being willing to embrace the totality of the disorder.
Its a paradoxical intervention that I employ, but I have seen much success with the OCD sufferers with whom I work.
'Radical acceptance' of the disorder often provides a hugely significant amount of relief in and of itself.
Wishing you the best,
Dr. Cynthia Giocomarra
