You’ve always described yourself as an "anxious” person. But lately your mind has been on another level and your go-to coping strategies aren’t working anymore. Intrusions show up at the most inopportune moments. Sometimes you recognize the irrationality, but other times it feels so real. The more you try to convince yourself that it’ll be OK and logic your way out of it, the deeper you get into the vicious cycle. Being alone with your thoughts has become something that you avoid. Those closest to you don’t understand your struggle or are simply unaware of it. The fear of being misunderstood makes this such an isolating experience.

I specialize in the treatment of OCD, anxiety, and other related disorders. I would love the opportunity to work together so you can gradually and effectively confront your fears and feel liberated. I help clients can get back to doing the things that they’ve been avoiding, feel connected with those around them again, and no longer dominated by their mind and time consuming rituals. My approach is very collaborative and I like to bring in humor (if you're up for that) as we work on coping with challenging thoughts and feelings.

Please take a look at my website michellegomezsalazar.com to learn more about me and the services that I provide. I look forward to hearing from you!
