Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a term thrown around by many and understood by few. At its root, OCD is about anxiety and control. Symptoms include intrusive, unwanted thoughts, like that certain shapes or items are “good” or “bad.” Other symptoms, so-called compulsions, make the client feel compelled to touch certain items, avoid cracks in the street, or perform other ritual behaviors to stave off unrelated but seemingly connected consequences. Our therapists are highly skilled in treating obseessive-compulsive disorder and have helped countless clients heal from this disorder, acknowledging the underpinnings of their behavior and helping them thrive.
