People with OCD experience unwanted intrusive thoughts, obsessions and compulsions that can lead to uncontrolled, physical and mental, repetitive behaviors. The behaviors - some of which are visible actions and others are mental images, urges or thoughts, may temporarily relieve the person's distress, and the cycle repeats itself with proper therapy. OCD can be debilitating and disrupt daily aspects of one's life and functioning.
Treatment for OCD is Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy. At times medication may be needed as well. All of our therapists who treat OCD are trained in Exposure and Response Therapy.
