the psy did--but that dr does not take the insurance--they can't afford to spend $145 an hour out of pocket which that OCD dr charges--with no money-back guarantee the treatment will be beneficial...

I'm currently a counseling student at UNT, and many of my professors specialize in children. Dr. Gina Galloway in Keller is one that immediately comes to mind. Her web site says she accepts a variety of insurance plans, but to check your individual provider.

The best thing your friend can do is learn, learn, learn about OCD and help her son. I don't know what form he has, but unless it is severe and prohibits normal activities, they can work as a family to help him. He needs to learn everything he can to understand what OCD is all about - a parent must also understand and be willing to help their kid learn that they can deal with it and don't have to give in to the obsessive/compulsive behaviors.

I'm not saying people aren't helped by psychologists and drugs, but it's good to stay away from unnecessary chemicals and those who are more conerned about $ than an individuals' best interests.

this child has cerebral palsy and is learning disabled--
it is not a "normal" situation
I just want the name of a therapist/psychologist who specializes in OCD folks--
not your personal philosophy about dealing with children with this condition

You should have put ALL the facts in your original post.

Rather ungracious of you to not at least be somewhat appreciative that some posters took their time to offer feedback.
