Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs)

Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs)

Trichotillomania (hair pulling), excoriation (skin picking), nail biting and other repetitive body-focused behaviors are common sources of distress and embarrassment that affect people of all ages and backgrounds. These conditions are likely to become chronic without proper treatment. We are here to help!

Many of our therapists have completed advanced trainings in BFRBs through the TLC Foundation Professional Training Institute.  Our client-centered, integrative treatment approach incorporates the latest evidence-based treatment for BFRBs, including Habit Reversal Training (HRT) and the Comprehensive Behavior Model (ComB), as well as additional Cognitive Behavior Therapies (CBT) with demonstrated efficacy. For young children, we incorporate these approaches within a play therapy framework.
