As a therapist that specializes in OCD, I can help you reach your goal of putting your OCD troubles behind you. Before joining NOCD, I spent my career treating severe anxiety and trauma cases, working within community health and hospital environments. I know how debilitating OCD can be, so I'm happy to make Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy available to you in my sessions. ERP is proven to work for all subtypes and is considered the gold standard of OCD treatment.
Intrusive OCD thoughts are persistent, and the more you do compulsions to relieve the anxiety that they cause, the longer it takes for compulsions to work. That may sound wrong at first because you would think that repeating your compulsions would make the anxiety go away faster. but it doesn't, and that's part of what makes having OCD so frustrating. Using ERP, I can teach you how to manage your OCD so you no longer have to rely on compulsions. Members describe me as empathetic. I practice unconditional acceptance, which is necessary to provide any healing. Being able to treat someone in need and watching them transform from my help makes my work very rewarding. I look forward to working with you, so that you can put your OCD troubles behind you.
