Our Approach to Care

Misophonia symptoms may occur in people with a diverse range of developmental, psychiatric, and physical health conditions. Misophonia also may be a problem among people with no other significant health problems.

Patients present with Misophonia symptoms to a variety of healthcare professionals:

  • Primary Care Physician
  • Pediatrician     
  • Neurologist
  • Psychologist
  • Psychiatrist
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Audiologist
  • Others

A Transdiagnostic Approach

The Duke Center for Misophonia and Emotion Regulation (CMER) recommends the use of a multidisciplinary approach and individualized care plan when working with patients that report impairment in functioning and significant psychological distress associated with symptoms of Misophonia. Our team strives to provide exceptional, evidence-based, and flexible care to individuals with Misophonia and their families. We collaborate with a wide range of other providers at Duke and are committed to offering state-of-the-art care that is responsive to the needs of each person and family.

Our Center is located in the same building as the Cognitive Behavioral Research and Treatment Program (CBRTP), the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) clinic, the Stress Trauma and Recovery Treatment (START) clinic and the Duke Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic. These clinics are staffed by many clinicians who specialize in the use of empirically supported and contemporary cognitive and behavioral approaches, treating a wide range of problems in adults (e.g., anxiety, mood, trauma, obsessive compulsive, personality, and eating disorders).
