Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) 

You deserve a happy and healthy life!

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, is characterized by obsessions or unwanted thinking patterns that can include unwanted thoughts, images or urges that trigger heightened levels of anxiety, distress, discomfort and even disgust. Individuals who have OCD therefore engage in compulsive behaviors or rituals in an attempt to get rid of, or control their obsessions and the distress associated with them. This cycle of obsessions and compulsions is often very time consuming and debilitating, preventing the individual from living a full life.

Common themes of OCD include:

  • Fear of causing harm

  • Fear of being harmed

  • Fear of contamination

  • Need for symmetry or exactness

  • Intolerance for uncertainty

  • The repeated cleaning of one or more items

  • Constant checking

  • Constant counting

  • Avoidance of certain places, experiences or things

 

If one or more of the above symptoms resonates with you, I encourage you to look into OCD therapy today. We specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure and Response prevention which research shows it provides the best results for the treatment of OCD. Exposure therapy is tailored to meet your own individual needs and so we provide in office exposure, as well as outside of the office and home visits.
