Living a life where you're dealing with anxiety alongside symptoms of obsessions and compulsions can be quite scary. Navigating these experiences can become less intimidating when we gain an understanding of what we're going through and we have the support to take deliberate steps towards addressing it. There may be instances where those in your life don't fully understand what you are going through, leading you to keep your intrusive thoughts and compulsive urges to yourself. It's important to know that you're not alone, as these symptoms are more common than you might realize.
I specialize in offering evidence-based approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure Response Prevention, and I provide intensive OCD sessions to assist individuals who are feeling overwhelmed, isolated, or uncertain while dealing with issues related to OCD, social anxiety, panic disorder and phobias.
Sometimes, our challenges are intertwined with difficult situations. By providing thoughtful, collaborative services rooted in compassion, humility and respect, my hope is to help you build the confidence and the strategies to combat your inner critic in the face of personal and societal adversity. Reach out to Pothos today for a free phone consultation.
