Understanding "why or how" a problem has become a problem is not enough; "doing something about it" is what matters. If we work together, we'll come up with a treatment plan to tap into the drivers of your struggles and start making a shift. I encourage behavioral-change processes based on your personal values and what's keeping you stuck. If you're not ready to make a change, let's help you move from stuckness to readiness. I specialize in Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). www.eastbaybehaviortherapycenter.com
I work with children, adolescents, & adults struggling with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, all types of anxiety, perfectionism, procrastination, emotion regulation problems.

Dr. Z the author of the book “parenting a troubled teen: using acceptance and commitment therapy,” for parents or caregivers raising teens struggling with “feeling too much, too quick, and acting too soon.” “Escaping the emotional roller coaster: ACT for the emotionally sensitive” is a self-help book for adults struggling with having an emotional switch.
