I treat people who are fairly new to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD and Intrusive Thoughts, or whose symptoms are starting to get worse. CBT for OCD can help.
OCD can can make you worried and anxious. It can take up your time and your thinking space. I’d like to help you decrease your symptoms and have more time and thinking space for other things.
I can help you move toward trusting your reason, evidence, and yourself. This takes “homework” to try out new CBT based tools and techniques.
A short video about how CBT can help OCD
Getting a diagnosis is helpful. It can help you understand what is going on. This will also ensure that your symptoms aren’t from another disorder or condition. You can talk to your family doctor for a free referral to a Psychiatrist who can make a diagnosis. They may also prescribe medication that can be helpful.
But, you do not have to have an official diagnosis to work with me, as I know wait times to see Psychiatrists can be long.
Distress Tolerance and Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP)
After learning some CBT skills, we move on to distress tolerance techniques, and sometimes move on to Exposure and Response Prevention therapy (ERP).
