Dr. Wuyek treats adults who are having difficulty with anxiety or obsessive-compulsive conditions.
Diagnostic Assessment: Careful assessment is important in beginning treatment. Evaluations typically last about 90-120 minutes. You will be asked about current symptoms, past treatment, and your psychosocial history. At the end of the evaluation, diagnoses and recommendations for treatment will be discussed.
Individual Therapy: Therapy for OCD, anxiety, and related disorders is typically once a week. CBT is the treatment of choice for anxiety and related disorders, and a specific version of CBT (Exposure and Response Prevention) is the treatment of choice for OCD and anxiety. These treatments have been well-validated by years of research. Treatment sessions are generally 45 minutes, though longer sessions may scheduled as needed.
One-Time Consultations: If patients or providers are feeling stuck in treatment or uncertain about diagnosis, Dr. Wuyek can provide consultation. This can be useful for diagnostic clarification or generating ideas about what to try next in treatment.
Professional Supervision: Dr. Wuyek is committed to the dissemination of empirically supported treatments. If professionals are interested in furthering their expertise or experience with ERP and CBT, supervision and consultation are available.
