I often see individuals suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, separation anxiety disorder, specific phobias, body focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), including trichotillomania (hair pulling) and excoriation disorder (skin picking), eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder,
, ADHD, school refusal, and others.
I (Dr. Crystal Bauer) am a licensed clinical psychologist and the founder of the Anxiety Wellness Center of Chicagoland. I have been specializing in the treatment of anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders to individuals across the lifespan for nearly a decade. I have extensive training in cognitive-behavioral therapy, specifically exposure therapy/exposure and response prevention (ERP), behavioral activation, behavior modification, mindfulness and other CBT techniques. Through these modalities, you learn how to identify and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns, respond in a more effective manner, and learn how to tolerate and accept discomfort.
