Living with OCD is exhausting

People tend to think of OCD as a personality trait, like being a clean freak, but often they don’t see the dark side of the condition; the anxiety and fear fuelling the repetitive behaviors and intrusive thoughts that disrupt your daily activities and relationships. Although OCD can feel isolating and like there is no opportunity for change, know that there is hope.

You don’t have to handle it alone.

What Is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is more than a behavioral — it’s a challenging mental health condition that can affect anyone across all ages and backgrounds. The intrusive, distressing thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors (compulsions) that accompany OCD, like excessive handwashing or checking, only worsen with attempts to soothe them.

Psychotherapy can help you get to the root of the issue, helping relieve the intrusive thoughts, compulsions, and avoidance that OCD causes, and offering hope for effectively managing your symptoms.

How Do I Know If I Have OCD?

The term OCD has become a common way to describe someone who prefers things to be neat and organized. However, this oversimplification can make it challenging to distinguish between normal preferences and potential indicators of a deeper issue. We understand this confusion, and are here to help you clarify your experience and find effective strategies for relief.

While everyone experiences OCD differently, some common symptoms include:

How OCD Therapy Can Help

IN TREATING OCD, WE USE THE SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN APPROACH OF EXPOSURE AND RESPONSE PREVENTION (ERP) THERAPY.

Unlike other types of therapy, ERP focuses more on changing behaviors than thoughts. Together, we identify your trigger areas and slowly expose you to these fears without letting you do your usual compulsive behaviors. Through this process, you can develop healthier coping strategies, regain
control over your urges, and ultimately reduce the power OCD has over your life.

In therapy, we help you develop practical strategies to navigate daily life more effectively, enabling you to engage in activities you enjoy without feeling overwhelmed by intrusive thoughts or compulsive behaviors. You’ll learn coping mechanisms and build resilience, gradually regaining a sense of normalcy and independence.
We work with you to identify and challenge patterns of compulsive behavior that consume excessive time and energy. Together, we develop alternative ways of coping with anxiety and uncertainty, allowing you to reclaim valuable time previously spent on rituals and compulsions.
We provide you with the tools to challenge and reframe obsessive thoughts, reducing their frequency and intensity over time. By learning to recognize triggers and implement healthy coping strategies, you can gain greater control over your thought patterns and experience relief from the burden of intrusive thoughts.
Developing healthier responses to urges associated with compulsions is a big step in your healing journey. Together, we identify triggers and develop personalized strategies for resisting compulsive behaviors, empowering you to break free from the cycle of OCD and regain control over your actions.
We offer a safe and supportive space for you to explore your emotions and experiences related to OCD without judgment. By addressing underlying fears and anxieties, therapy promotes a sense of calm and inner peace, enabling you to cultivate resilience and experience greater mental well-being. Through therapy, you can develop effective coping mechanisms and build the skills needed to manage OCD symptoms, ultimately achieving a sense of peace and tranquility in your daily life.

You’ve come to the right place.

Frequently Asked Questions About OCD Treatment

There is no one thing that causes OCD, but it can develop based on a combination of factors, including genetics, brain structure and function, environmental influences, and psychological triggers.

Some common lifestyle triggers may contribute to exacerbating OCD symptoms as well, such as: stressful life events, certain substances, or a lack of sleep.

Your therapist will work with you to determine a comfortable pace of treatment and exposure sessions can be modified as needed. They will be there alongside you supporting you through any difficulties you experience.

No, your therapist will never force you to do anything you do not want to do. They can give recommendations and encouragement but ultimately you get the final say in treatment decisions.

At the start of exposure sessions, clients may initially experience a temporary increase in anxiety. If this is your experience, be assured that anxiety levels typically decrease, often within the very first session itself. As a result, clients often leave feeling more at ease and with a sense of achievement.

Exposure and response prevention has been studied for years and has very strong support in effectively treating OCD both in the short-term and long-term.
