"New beginnings are often bred by painful endings. Are you struggling to redefine your identity after a major life change? Have you lost passion or drive? I’ve been there. After many years of being a collegiate and professional runner, I retired. I felt a deep sense of loss and didn’t know who I was if I wasn’t an athlete. I struggled to connect with anything the way I did with running. I spent countless years searching for something or someone that would help fill the void running once filled"

"If you don't count, spin, wash, or pray, something bad will happen. You must protect yourself. You perform certain behaviours until the anxiety is gone, or it feels "just right." You dread your daily routine because it takes so long now it is just easier to not go out, go to work, or invite friends over. You have done your research and you know that Exposure and Ritual Prevention has helped other people with their OCD, but you cannot seem to find anyone who understands your OCD or this treatment. "
