I'm fortunate to have seen Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy help people with OCD when I worked at a non-profit community mental health program almost 15 years ago. The program was a great learning environment because I treated every type of mental health issue, including OCD, and saw how people's behavior changed when given proper treatment. It molded me as a therapist, and now, I'm using ERP to treat so many people that need support and guidance as they face OCD.
