As a therapist, my goal is to provide the most effective treatment for individuals with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Hoarding, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), Trichotillomania (Hair Pulling), and Excoriation (Dermatillomania - Skin Picking). I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), specifically Exposure & Response Prevention to help those suffering with OCD, Hoarding, BDD, and Habit Reversal Therapy to help those with pulling, picking, and Tics, as these evidence based treatments have proven to be the most effective. I believe with the right tools and support, people can learn to address these struggles and thrive.

I'm Jim Hatton, Ph.D. I began my career as a neuroscientist, and then realized my calling for helping people. I spent the next 20 years as a Marriage and Family therapist specializing in cognitive behavioral therapy, primarily working with people with OCD and Impulse Control Disorders like Trichotillomania and Compulsive Skin Picking. Becoming very familiar with ERP and Habit Reversal skills for treating these sufferers, I saw the additional need for helping the others, both family and treating professionals, around them directly (and thereby indirectly helping the sufferers too). This is where I currently conduct these efforts.

“What happened to my happy child?” Parents often come to me feeling overwhelmed and confused by their child’s obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or anxiety. Often it starts with a small fear – about something bad happening to Mom or Dad, about getting sick, about failing a quiz – but the anxiety grows over time and keeps your child from the calm and joy you wish for them. Your child may retreat and avoid people and situations that used to bring them happiness. Many parents do their best to help them regain control of their thoughts and emotions, but they become disheartened when their efforts seem to make no difference.

I hold compassion for those who struggle with OCD: the persistent, unwanted, intrusive obsessions, the sometimes paralyzing anxieties, the compulsive thoughts, actions, rituals, avoidances meant to neutralize bad thoughts. I also have an understanding of how often OCD can be misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and the shame and stigma sufferers sometimes feel. Most of my work involves helping people gain control over their OCD and process associated traumas. I also work with related issues, such as BDD, Emetophobia, social anxiety, unwanted habits. I combine a sensitive, client-centered approach with science-backed therapeutic techniques.

Many of my clients struggle with thoughts and feelings (usually anxiety/guilt) that seem to feel intrusive, distressing, and demand an urgent response. My clients will make mental or physical efforts to relieve the distress but are generally unable to find lasting relief. Many suffer in silence as thoughts become too difficult to talk about. My treatment approach is specific to the individual and not just a protocol or "one-size-fits-all" approach.

Stepping into your truth can be frightening, mixed with feelings of doubt which may cause you to retreat and stay quiet. There is no right way to uncover emotions that may be blocking you from living a fulfilled life. Everyone has stories to tell, unique, inspiring, challenging and sometimes devastating. The shocking thing is that many people walk through life without ever sharing these life events and so often with trauma, the guilt and shame can stop you from telling anyone.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) (Trichotillomania (TTM), Hair Pulling, Skin Picking) Therapists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions).

Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
