Traditionally, PANS/PANDAS is treated with a combination of medication, CBT, and Exposure therapy. However, I have found there is often a history of trauma associated with the initial onset of symptoms.
A child can be incorrectly diagnosed and in turn end up with a series of negative experiences with physicians and medications. Resulting in thoughts and feelings of being broken, defective, or out of control of his/her brain and body.
EMDR therapy addresses trauma, OCD, and other symptoms of PANS/PANDAS. I have many success stories diagnosing and working with experts to coordinate a treatment plan for children and families to overcome PANS/PANDA.
I am happy to have a phone consultation to see if I am a good therapeutic fit for your family.
