Hello, Dr. Tom DiBlasi here, and I am a Postdoc at My OCD Care.
I think it takes a lot of courage to come in for therapy, and I want to be there to support you through it.
I graduated from Hofstra with my PhD, upon receiving general and specialized training, including in treating anxiety, depression, anger, and crisis counseling. I was lucky enough to receive specialized training in Motivational Interviewing (MI), which helps people resolve their ambivalence towards change. Change can be hard, and although sometimes we know what our goal is and how to change, it is difficult to follow through with it. That is where MI comes in, so that you can make the changes that help you live your best life. In addition, I have advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), from the renowned Beck Institute itself! Lastly, I have intensive training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ExRP), the most effective way to treat OCD.
In addition to clinical work (which I love!), I am also an Assistant Professor at St. Joseph’s College where I teach undergraduate students and research anger, aggression, and revenge. I am lucky enough to have nearly ten publications and over 25 presentations on such topics. I consider myself fortunate to have a clinical and a teaching job, where people trust me to be vulnerable and allow me to help them carve their path.
Although therapy can be hard work, I am confident we can get through it, together.
