Q&A From OCD to ADHD with Counselor Jay Pesek
Manage episode 319239562 series 2886911
Jon Pesek (“Jay”) was diagnosed with childhood OCD at age 5 and participated in intense CBT and Exposure & Response therapy himself as an adult, then worked alongside a psychiatrist for 4 years treating OCD patients with medication and CBT before opening his own practice to address children, adolescents and adults using the techniques and training he both underwent and learned.
He treats children, adolescents and adults with behavioral issues, mood disorders, developmental and personality disorders. I work with parents to develop behavioral plans for their homes and families to supplement the therapy done with their children/adolescents in my office.
My graduate training dealt with adolescent male patients with behavioral problems, emotional intelligence deficiencies, sexual abuse history and suicidal gestures and ideations. I see many single parents struggling with their children at home or in school.
I enjoy working with individuals, families, single parents and their children and prefer to "rule out" more than quickly diagnose.
