I am a licensed clinical psychologist providing individual, couple, and family therapy in private practice to those seeking treatment for anxiety and mood disorders, OCD, couple and family distress, trauma-related issues, addiction, and emotion regulation disorders. I attempt to challenge existing patterns while also providing encouragement, empathy, and support so that clients feel understood and able to push through what they identify as currently unworkable patterns. When appropriate, I work from an evidence-based framework, providing treatments that have been found to be effective and successful through research studies.

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.

I specialize in the treatment of all anxiety-related disorders, including OCD, Social Anxiety, and Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake. After developing a treatment protocol at the Intensive Program level that was the first in the nation to integrate mindfulness-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ("ACT") with Exposure Therapy in the treatment of OCD, I am continuing that work in private practice. My focus is on helping people respond differently to the physical sensations of anxiety, get some space from "sticky" thoughts, and to return to the present moment.

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.

If you or your child suffer from OCD or other anxiety disorders, you're not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness, yet most sufferers don't receive proper, evidence-based treatment. OCD/anxiety can cause problems socially, academically, professionally, and create chaos with family members. The good news is that there is help. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has repeatedly shown to be the most effective approach for defeating OCD and anxiety. CBT creates new neuro-pathways by changing the way you think and behave. It's basically exercise for the brain. The more you flex those brain muscles, the stronger you become.

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.
