Dr. K. Andrews Expands Intensive Treatment Options for Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), PTSD, and Phobias in the Westwood/Beverly Hills Area
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), anxiety disorders affect about 40 million American adults age 18 and older (about 18 percent) in a given year. Findings show that mental disorders most commonly start in early life. Dr. K. Andrews specializes in the intensive treatment of mental health disorders including anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and phobias.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 6, 2010
K. Andrews, PsyD, has expanded intensive treatment options and is accepting new patients seeking help for anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and phobias. Dr. K. Andrews specializes in the intensive treatment of chronic mental health disorders, in addition to providing standard psychotherapy and counseling for routine life challenges. Her practice is located at 468 N. Camden Drive, Beverly Hills, near Westwood.
Knowing the high costs of intensive treatment for anxiety disorders has kept its benefits out of reach for many, Dr. Andrews, formerly with the Westwood Institute for Anxiety Disorders, utilizes the same research-based techniques used at the most expensive treatment centers to design individualized services to fit each individual’s budget and needs.
“There is no reason to feel continually battered by excessive anxiety,” says Dr. K. Andrews. “Overcoming anxiety is a matter of skill and action, and professional treatment is the path to regaining the control to live a more peaceful life.”
Dr. Andrews provides intensive treatment for adolescents and adults utilizing only proven scientific methods developed by leading professionals, including: diagnosis, assessment, Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), In-Vivo Immersion (IVI), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and weekly group therapy. The specialized one-on-one treatment options include a one-week instructional self-treatment program, and a four-week intensive treatment recovery program. Both programs are highly effective and tailored to address the specific treatment needs of the individual. Assistance will be given to out-of-town clients to find housing accommodations during treatment.
“Dr. Andrews gave our son his life back after other treatment failed,” says the mother of a teenaged son with OCD. “She is caring and compassionate, yet strong in her treatment style. Our son has achieved tremendous success in taking control of his anxiety disorder and is now doing well in school and enjoys a full and happy life.”
Dr. K. Andrews holds four degrees in psychology, including two in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. She has 10 years of experience providing psychotherapy in clinical settings including the Westwood Institute for Anxiety Disorders, Airport Marina Counseling Service, and Century City Hospital. A Navy veteran and a former member of the NATO defense force, Dr. Andrews has lived in multiple countries, influencing her culturally inclusive approach to treatment.
Dr. K. Andrews is a registered psychological assistant (PSB# 35240 ) working under the supervision of Dr. N. Redman, Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY# 18546), who adds, “Dr. Andrews is extremely committed to the profession and has tremendous success with patients of all ages, backgrounds and treatment needs.”
