Michael has published two research articles addressing the treatment of anxiety in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine and The Journal of Psychology. He treats all types of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and other anxiety disorders such as Panic Disorder, Social Phobia, Hypochondriasis (Health Anxiety), Skin-Picking, Hair-Pulling, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and other common phobias.

Michael uses the most up to date methods of treatment implementing Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure/Response Prevention (ERP) and other evidence-based protocols. Michael has a seminar (Surviving Your Child’s OCD) that he presents several times a year to help parents develop the tools to enable their children to beat OCD. Given Michael’s training and over 23 years of experience treating clients with anxiety disorders you can be assured that he will have a treatment plan that is tailored for the needs of each patient. He is excited about showing his patients the secrets of overcoming OCD and living happy, peaceful lives. As someone who struggled with OCD for many years, I understand the importance of providing all of my clients with constant validation and a safe space to disclose such difficult emotions. I take pride in helping my clients get rid of OCD completely and allowing them to live a much more fulfilling life. Having overcome OCD in my personal life, I have an inside view on the treatment of OCD coupled with my specialized OCD training. I look forward to sharing my personal stories and victories in my journey to helping you beat OCD and living a happier life. I will be excited to help you overcome OCD if you decide to work with me and/or my clinical counseling intern, Daniel Brown, M.A., LPC-A, today to begin the life you dream of.

Michael works with all ages of clients including children, adolescents, and adults. For more information, please continue through website or email me.

Daniel Brown

Daniel is an effective, motivated, and compassionate counselor who provides psychotherapy to patients suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Disorders, Phobias, and Anxiety Disorders using evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Exposure Response Prevention. Daniel is under the direct supervision of Michael Soderstrom, MA, LPC-S until he completes his clinical internship at Houston OCD Counseling. Daniel and his supervisor, Michael, work extremely closely together on every client’s evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment plan to make sure each client obtains the most effective and personalized care. Daniel provides an identical structured evaluation, assessments, and treatment plan as Michael Soderstrom, MA, LPC-S but for a significantly lower fee. Houston OCD Counseling is now able to provide effective care for individuals suffering from OCD at a reduced price. 

While Daniel is perfectly at home working with neurotypical folks (people whose brains work closely to what society has decided is “normal”), he has a special passion for bringing mental healthcare to adults on the Autism Spectrum and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. He is currently running in-office and virtual support groups for adolescents and adults on the Autism Spectrum who are looking for social interaction, positive feedback, and learning DBT skills to help cope with our emotions and thoughts. Daniel focuses on each group member developing life-skills for enhanced confidence on their life-journey.  He also believes strongly in supporting parents with lots of useful information and constructive feedback. Daniel has training in cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure/response prevention, traditional talk therapy, drama therapy, creative arts therapies, and assorted embodied techniques. As an actor, Daniel enjoys bringing out his creative side to help patients and group members feel welcome and learn that personal growth can really be fun!
