My approach to treating OCD is very collaborative. I'll be a cheerleader for you throughout the entire process. I believe you're the expert on your own life experience. Outside of work, I prioritize health and fitness. I own a spin bike. I try to challenge myself in different ways. I've recently gone skydiving and zip-lining—they were cool experiences, but I don't know if I'll ever do them again!
Doing therapy for OCD is one of the bravest things you can do. Trust yourself as you start this journey, and trust the process you're going through. Sticking with it and doing the work will allow you to achieve amazing outcomes.

Here are some tips on how to practice self-compassion! -Talk to yourself like you would talk to a loved one who is also struggling -Use the same tone with yourself that you would use with a loved one -Make sure you are doing things that are good for you in the long term (not just the short term) -Utilize self-compassion statements that are not necessarily reassurance in nature. For example, "I am strong" or "I am doing the best I can". *Be patient and practice this skill even when it doesn't feel authentic* Self-compassion is difficult but it can make all the difference in recovery.Go to post
