Pronouns: She, Her, Hers
Lucy Grantz, LMFT, of Pivot Psychotherapy, is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Minnesota specializing in therapy for teens and adults struggling with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Anxiety. She has lived experience with recovering from the grip of OCD and is subsequently committed to helping others. Lucy's OCD presentation appeared with primarily mental compulsions, and so this is a specific area of interest.
Currently, Lucy uses Inference-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as a preferred method to treat OCD. She finds the approach provides an enlightening "manual for the OCD brain", and has seen clients improve greatly. She attends several peer consultations and also consults with Frederick Aardema, one of the founders of I-CBT.
Lucy brings to treatment a wealth of experience personally and as a therapist. She has a background in exploring Buddhism and mindfulness, which is beneficial for any therapeutic process. As an OCD provider, Lucy was trained in Exposure and Response Prevention through the Behavioral Therapy Training Institute. She also has experience treating OCD using Rumination-Focused CBT.
Maintaining a private practice in Southwest Minneapolis, Minnesota, called Pivot Psychotherapy, Lucy is available for Telehealth and in-person appointments.
