    Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, involves having obsessive thinking patterns that can include unwanted thoughts, images, or urges that make a person feel anxious or distressed. To manage distress, people with OCD try to reverse the obsessive thoughts by some action (mental or physical).

    People suffering with OCD may have:

    • Intrusive thoughts inconsistent with values
      • Sexual Orientation OCD
      • Intrusive thoughts of harming others
    • Scrupulosity, fear of sin or displeasing God
    • Relationship OCD
    • Checking & re-checking
    • Continuing an action until it feels ‘just right’
    • Fear of contamination causing harm to self or others
    • Hoarding
    • Obsessive thoughts of harm to self or others

    OCD affects approximately 2% of the population and about 20% of my practice. Specialized training and experience with evidence-based treatments for OCD have increased my understanding and effectiveness in this area. I hope you will contact me today for a consultation for yourself or your child.
