Ratings for Dr. Steven L. PENCE
I began seeing Dr Pence in 2008 for my trichotillomania. With his help I was able to go into remission and stop pulling my hair. Over the years I've relapsed but he's always been there to help me work through it again. We also discovered that I have a slight hoarding problem. We discussed my hoarding in our weekly sessions but he also came to my house and helped me to purge my office and garage. It was quite a relief! I have since moved to Georgia but I meet weekly with Steve on Skype and with his help I am able to work through any issues that arise.
I have battled with anxiety, depression, and OCD since a teenager. After countless attempts at finding an effective treatment provider I was recommended Dr. Pence. I will have to say that Dr. Pence has changed my life. At one of darkest times of my life he provided me with compassion and such effective treatment for my conditions. I have regained my life again and continue to make great strides. I would highly recommend Dr. Pence, he was literally a life saver.
Dr. Pence did intensive exposure therapy with my daughter for Social Anxiety. He is knowledgeable, explained things well, and approachable which is very important for persons with SA. Real life exposures are the heart of what he does, which is so different and more effective than talk therapy for some. You feel instantly as ease with him and that is very important for the patient to progress. I HIGHLY recommend him.
I did intensive cognitive-behavior therapy (cbt) with Dr. Pence for my ocd and it helped tremendously. He is very kind and laid back. He's a pretty funny gut too. While he takes treatment seriously, he has a way of making it fun. With Dr. Pence, what you see is what you get. He is genuine and doesn't pretend to be something he's not.
My daughter suffers with trichotillomania and we brought her to a number of therapists before finding Dr. Steve. He was the only therapist who had successfully treated this problem in the past. We noticed improvement almost immediately and we now only see him on occasion for continued monitoring.
I am very satisfied with the care and treatment that Dr Pence is providing for my daughter. We have been to many counselors/psychologits in two counties over the years but Dr Pence is the best that I have encountered. He has a great "way" of reaching my daughter. I would recommend him wholeheratedly and without reservation.His staff is very helpful and pleasant. I finally feel that my daughter will get the help she needs.
