  1. Can you recommend a therapist in the Philadelphia area? This is getting critical.

  2. My wife is a misophonia sufferer and the symptoms are worsening. We have researched CBT treatment and believe it is a much better way to address her condition. Is there a therapist in the Chicago area that you could recommend to us? If not, we would like to talk about your internet-based CBT therapy. Thank you for this awesome information. Maybe we will be able to enjoy dinner together some day.

  3. My daughter started showing signs of misphonia around age 8. She is now 11. She has severe anger when hearing someone chew, sniffle and swallow! She will usually have to leave the room. Do you know of anyone in AZ you would recommend?

    • My best recommendation is to have video-chat treatment with Chris Pearson. He is in the UK, but can work by VSee. See Hypnotherapy under the Treatment Providers.

  4. Wondering if anyone knows of a good therapist or hypnotist in southern Wisconsin?

  5. Does Dr. Salhany provide treatment in St. Petersburg or is she a long distance faculty member? I’m a little confused with her having the Florida address. Thank you.

  6. Do you know a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist in North Carolina?

  7. Do you know of any therapists in Fairbanks, Alaska who provide misophonia treatment?

    • I do not know of anyone in Alaska. See the Treatment Providers page. Dr. Jaelline Jaffe can provide DBT therapy via internet, and I provide my treatment via internet.

    • Margaret: Did you find someone in Alaska? Even just someone familiar with the condition? I live in Eagle River and I am desperate to find someone to help my 10yr girl.


  8. Can they kind of cure misophonia? If not can anything?

    • It depends on the individuals, but the people listed on these pages can provide help (but not a “cure”). See the Cases page for some of my successes.
