Hi, my name is Susan (Suzy) Eppling and I am an occupational therapist with expertise in the treatment of Tourette Syndrome (Tourette's or TS), Motor & Vocal Tic Disorders, and Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRB). My telehealth practice, Online OTs, specializes in CBIT & ComB Habit Reversal Training. Emphasis is placed on reducing the unwanted tics and/or body-harming actions as well as the frustration, isolation, and embarrassment they cause. Strategies are practical, highly effective, and easy to implement. Skill training begins during the initial evaluation.
Online OTs enables patients and their families to develop and implement a highly personalized habit reversal plan to bring tics and/or BFRB under control. Training includes CBIT competing responses to inhibit muscles involved in unwanted actions. Sensory, emotional, physical, cognitive, and neurological influences on behaviors are also explored.
Many people with tics and compulsive behaviors such as nail biting, skin picking, and hair pulling (Trichotillomania) go decades without treatment. Fortunately, CBIT Habit Reversal strategies work well and can be quickly implemented. Online OTs offers an empathetic ear and highly skilled intervention. Our telehealth services are convenient and discreet.

Therapy begins with an understanding of how tics and/or BFRB are impacting your daily life. Together we will identify what triggers the behaviors and explore what activities and simple modifications can bring them under control.
