Are you or a loved one experiencing Trichotillomania? If you find yourself or someone close grappling with the challenges of Trichotillomania, the therapists at Ricci Psychology Partners are here to provide specialized and compassionate support.


Understanding Trichotillomania

Trichotillomania, pronounced trik-o-til-o-MAY-nee-uh, is a challenging disorder characterized by recurring, irresistible urges to pull out hair from various body areas, such as the scalp or eyebrows. Despite conscious efforts to stop, individuals with trichotillomania find themselves grappling with this compulsive behavior, resulting in noticeable hair loss and, in some cases, patchy bald spots that lead to significant distress and interfere with daily functioning.

Specialized Therapy Solutions

Our doctors specialize in trichotillomania therapy, offering compassionate and effective interventions to help individuals manage and overcome this condition. They create a supportive therapeutic environment where patients can openly explore their experiences, challenges, and goals related to trichotillomania.

Trichotillomania varies in severity, and our therapy services are designed to meet the individual needs of each patient. Whether trichotillomania is a mild and manageable concern or an overwhelming compulsion, our goal is to assist individuals in reducing hair-pulling behaviors and, in some cases, achieving complete cessation. Our therapists utilize evidence-based therapeutic approaches to empower patients with practical coping skills and strategies.

Holistic Recovery for Improved Well-being

We recognize that trichotillomania can profoundly impact social and work functioning. Our therapy services aim not only to address the immediate symptoms but also to support patients in developing a deeper understanding of the underlying psychological factors contributing to their condition. This holistic approach sets the foundation for sustainable and meaningful change.
