Find 4 therapists that can help with Body dysmorphic disorder

Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a mental health condition in which a person is preoccupied with perceived flaws or defects in their appearance that are not noticeable to others or are only minor. These flaws can be real or imagined, and may involve any part of the body, but most commonly affect the skin, hair, nose, or other facial features. BDD can be a debilitating condition, causing significant distress and impairment in social, occupational, and other areas of functioning. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a common form of psychotherapy for BDD, which helps people to change negative thought patterns and behaviors related to their appearance.
