Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Therapists
While it was once thought to be rare, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is now known to be a common, and often debilitating, form of mental illness. Many people who experience OCD symptoms have both obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are unwanted or distressing thoughts, image, and/or urges. Compulsions are defined as repetitive behaviors or thoughts.
Those with OCD may feel driven to reduce distress and often compulsions are intended to reduce the distress related to the obsessions. You may be concerned about germs so you’ll incessantly wash your hands to ensure there are no germs. This cycle can be hard to break.
Our OCD Therapist Specialists will use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness based techniques to help clients to reduce their obsessions and compulsions.
